Hi Geoff,

I had the same thing happen to me last year. All of a sudden, I was getting spam addressed to me From me. My wife was getting spam addressed to her from me. It would have been so bad except the spammer was selling time-shares to a sex club in Mexico. Identifying the spammer as junk mail wouldn't work because that would send all mail addressed to me to the trash. It took a little over a month for things to clear out. Luckily, I didn't get listed as a spammer and I didn't loose any work or friends over the episode, but it was embarrassing especially when my 75-year-old aunt mentioned she got the email.
