    Default Im getting Spammed by my own email address

    I've been getting spammed with messages that are being sent by someone using my email address. I opened one to see what it was but Outlook blocked the images it contained so I didnt go any further.Any clue as to what is going on? How can I stop this?Zone Alarm says it hasnt found any viruses of spyware.
    Confused.


    Operating System:Windows XP Pro
    Software Version:7.0
    Product Name:ZoneAlarm Internet Security Suite

    Hi!anybody can send an e-mail with your name/email as header.So that it looks like you are sending it. You can't do much about it, its spam B-)May be you can contact your ISP, e-mail provider to check if anything can be done on their side.Fax

    Well that kind of **bleep**s.
    I listened to an I-tunes podcast from Leo Laporte-The Tech Guy who said something to the effect thatspyware can get on your computer and can send out spam or use your computer maliciously in other ways with out my knowing it.So it kinda freaked me out when I got spammed with my own email address.Any way spyware ware can send out email from my computer without ZoneAlarm blocking it? I would sort of assume it would.
