Have any other gransnetters experienced junk mail from their own e-mail address?I always block any junk but was surprised today when I tried to block one and a message came up saying that I could not block my own e-mail address,which was given as the junk sender's address.How can this happen-anyone know?

NO idea. But if you post in the technology topic, you should get answers.

Didn't we have a recent thread about something similar? Will see if I can find it.

There was, not sure what the outcome was. If it happens to us we change our email passwords and that seems to stop it. Technical experts will know more.
