    Hi vamp666,

    I'd start with changing your password and verifying that all security questions & answers are information that you have set.

    It could be someone actually sending email from your account. but it could also be a spamming sending From: your email address even though they don't have access to your actual account.

    The first problem you can try to resolve by changing your password and running a security scan on your computer, but unfortunately the other possible issue is not one that you have much control over.
