Dear Friends
I have the latest version of thunderbird installed I also run NOD32 Antivirus programm.
The problem that occurs is that in the last two weeks I recieve all the time where the sender and the reciepient is me. If I open this mails inside there are junks like drugstores, sexsites etc. If I open via thunderbird the message code of this emails then there is allways some email address from spammers or people I dont know in the reply section.

What can I do I recieve allmost 100 spam mails per day but now plus 30 to 40 from my self.

Thanks for your help

Welcome to TSF!!

Hi,

I would start by not opening any email that has a sent to and reply email that is the same, that is usually a good queue that it spam. Next about the emails that you are opening in Thunderbird. I would recommend that you start sending all of the suspected spam messages to your junk folder. This may take some time but it will get the job done.

I haven't used thunderbird in a couple of years but i am pretty sure that there is a junkmail function. I found an article on the mozillaZine, Mozilla's online magazine. Take a look at this for help with it.

Cheers!

This is a known problem, but nothing to worry about. I've been getting the same emails as you that appear to have been sent from my own address. They will start to disappear after a few days if you don't open them or click on their links.

In the meantime, setup a filter to junk any incoming mail where the sender is spoofing your address.

Open Thunderbird and go to Tools > Message Filters. Click the 'New...' button. Set the first dropdown menu option to 'From'. Set the second option to 'is'. Enter your email address in the third box.

You can then either send the emails to your Junk folder as wmorri says, or you can 'Delete from POP server' so you never have to see or deal with the problem again. This is the method I've been using and it has reduced the amount of spam that reaches me from about 100 a day down to less than 5.
