so some one using this email address abcd@yahoo.com from his pc & sending to me at this email abcd@yahoo.com that i can ckeck in my SPAM folder.

so usually i go to my SPAM folder & get the persons email & i put in the blocker list, sothat he should not send me an email next time.

but this time i am not success to block this email abcd@yahoo.com , because this is my email address, how i can block.

So i like to know with you guy having lot of experience,
1)-How to stop this person by using my email address. and may be he is using my email address to send other peoples junk email by my name ?
2)-Which SPAM blocker program i have to install on my PC, so that it can BLOCK SPAM & not get that emails in my email address ?

It's just spam. People don't block their own address. Some mass spam mail programs send mail to someone@somewhere.com and use someone@somewhere.com as fake sent from address

so you mean he use outlook express to send me emails in my same email addres.

please let me know some more details, is it possible to send email by some one in my same email address.

so do i have to worry about this situation or no need to worry about this, because i am getting emails in my SPAM FOLDER only by my email address.

i already change my strong password. but still worry about this situation. Please let me know.

thanks.

Hi tester2,

I don't know if this explains your problem as it is not very clear to me, if I send an email from Gmail directly, it appears in my Windows Live Mail Inbox.

It is very easy to spoof a 'sent from' email address. The email wasn't actually sent from your account. Your account is safe You might be able to forward the email to yahoo, they can probably tell who the actual sender is.

hi gys thanks for your replies,

i notice when i reply to other peoples then i have to enter a string of characters or capichono like "4WhLm" etc, then i can send the email successfully.

so the same way how i can do this string capichono, the sender to me has to type a string "K8hPq" etc, so what i have to do, for asking his to type string before he send me an email.

please let me know this procedure, where i have to go to do in my email account settings.

thanks

Captcha? You have to do that when sending replies to emails? Hmmm, that is odd. I don't know why that is, or how to use it

EDIT: In searching I see that new accounts have to fill in the Captcha until Yahoo is convinced you are not a spammer/bot. With established accounts, it seems to be when they have reports of unusual activity from an account. Perhaps in your case, what "appears" to come from your account.

You might want to contact support, you shouldn't have to fill out a Captcha every time you email.
