I am getting spam from my email address. When I click on show detail I get Message Send From gmail and and in account name their is my email address from which it was send. I have changed my password two times how can I stop it.
It's called spoofing an address and it happens all the time. The spam isn't really from your own account. If you were to read the message headers, you would see that the originating address is most likely from somewhere outside India (Russia, China or even Nigeria perhaps). Unfortunately, web based mail like Yahoo, Gmail and Hotmail do not make it easy to view the entire header.
They are sent by using telnet or smtp.... I dont know the steps exactly... But through that one can send mails to any one using any email address... And that to directly in inbox... But if IIS is not properly configured of the sender it comes as spam... This is possible because smtp does not checks the format of the sender email id... It takes is as string.... So you can receive mails through that from the addresses which dont even exists you can learn it to... Just google it... It happened with me few time back.. When i was not knowing all this... You can check my posts for that
It wasn't actually sent from you. It's called spoofing and it tricks a lot of people. Look at the extended header of the email and you will usually see your real sender. To be honest, any email service out there has the power to change the FROM address with a lil knowledge.
