    Hi shark,

    There are a few possibilities including:

    • A spammer is using your address as the From:
    • A spammer compromised an account that has both your emails in the address book
    • Your account was compromised
    Which email service do you use?

    Here are some links for cleaning up hacked accounts at popular email services:
