Like everyone else I receive spam. However, today I received an email claiming that I had opted into to a mailing list advertising cigars from:
What upsets me is the email appears to originate from me, and is addressed to me. Therefore, someone could (and is probably) sending emails to others, using my email address. I am therefore annoyed.
Please could some explain to me how they (could) have managed to do this? I have a web hosting service, which forwards emails directed to my .COM address to my ISP email address. Could it be the case that they have compromised the security of my web hosting company. Or can it be achieved more simply than that?
Anyone know who I could complain to about this?
