      More and more forged emails

      Not sure if this is the right place for this but recently i have been getting about 20-30 emails a day going straight to my spam folder that appear to have been sent from me to me.
      Sky email has flagged these as likely to be forged, but the link it provides to give more information just takes you to the sky.com homepage.

      Has anyone else noticed this starting to happen to their emails and also being re-driected to useless places?

      Chances are you have picked up a trojan, run spybot and Malwarebytes and see if they find anything.

      You should do something about it or Sky are likely to cut you off until you format your PC.

      Re: More and more forged emails

      I have the same problem with my Gmail account and have had for over a year. I contacted Google but they never responded.

      In my case it is not a trojan or any other form of malware and reformatting windows doesn't make any difference.

      This may be of some help. Spam messages from myself???? - Gmail Help

      Re: More and more forged emails

      Just because an email says its from you it does not mean it's from you. People can mask headers etc in any kind of email to make it look like the email came from person A when in fact it came from person B.
