If I receive a spam and the sender is me,what's the matter?The software sending spams assembles username with letters and numbers to send spam emails and hide the real sender address.So you see sender is yourself.
You do not have to worry about these emails,and delete them or send these emails forward to system administrator in the way of attachment.
How to know where the real send from?The spams are sent by fowarding software,and the address of senders can be fake.And you can view the real sender through the header of email.The method of checking the header:
1) If you read emails in Web page,you can open emails directly.Click "View Original Text" of "Other Options" in top of the page,and you can see the header of emails.
2) If you receive emails through Outlook Express,you can point to email without opening and right click to check the attribute of email and "Detail information".You can see the the header of emails.
If there is a sender in the header,it is real sender behind "Sender".If there is no sender,the last "Received from" is SMTP server the sender use.
The general expression format of Receive commands: From Server A by Server B，Server A is a sending server,Server B is a receiving server.
Generally,Server A in the last sentence "Receive" is the address of senders, and Server B is the sending server,the start of emails. And Server B in the first sentence is your mail reveiving server.Different servers add different content to the header of email,and you cannot find any IP address or domain in "Receive" line sometimes and continue to find up to the page.
