I was looking in my spam folder and found an email that is spam that appears to be sent from my email address, to my email address. I suspect it is a spoof or something, but I can’t tell by looking at the header. Can anyone tell me how they did this? And how I might be able to stop them?
Here is the email along with the headers:
