Spam effectiveness - Improve protection against self spoofing
It would be helful if you inproved your email filters to auto block emails that are sent to me from a spoofed email account or a email account that makes the to filed look like mine but it a no reply email account that you use to send inprotant notifications from. Which me and other users have been reciving for quite some time and often in another langage.

Do not allow emails in the system that do not have a legitimate email address - when I want to "Block" a sender your response should not be "Do you want to block ?"!
I have been getting a lot of these lately.
Thanks Don XXX email@example.com

I received junk emails in my junk email folder. When I clicked on to Block I noticed that they had supposedly been sent by me to me. I did not send these. How can I stop this from happening??? I ended up not opening the emails but deleted. Help

Allow me to block my own userid. I get hundreds of emails from my userid. Do a better job of filtering or allow me to do it.
Deal with spammers spoofing users email addresses more effectviely as this seems to be a huge problem on your forums with numerous questions and numerous people sharing the same issue.
Either allow us to temporarily block our own email addresses, or find a way to stop spam getting through on spoofed addresses.

I really have a problem with my email. I am getting email in my junk folder that is rated X, and it says it is from me. I am a 74 yr. old senior woman, and am NOT interested in this mail. I am afraid to block it as it shows it comes from my email address, because I don't know how it will affect my regular email that is good email. Please help me to find an answer to this problem. Lynda Getz (firstname.lastname@example.org). I worry I am being baited in some way. Please, please I would like not to get this email. At least it shows up in junk but I immediately trash it and delete it without opening anything. I am scared! Thank you for any help you can give me in this matter.

I had written several times over really foul and nasty emails. Could not block as they were using my address. Right now I see most all gone, nasty words, everything nasty, foul and oh my, GONE!! Somehow it was thought Carole was a man, so for a man. Such ugliness, foul, dirty, nasty things are certainly nothing most of us want to see EVER. KUDO'S! THANK YOU!!!!

SOMEONE HAS HACD MY EMAIL AND IS SENDING AN EMAIL TITLE "SIGNED HUD1"
I CHANGED MY PASSWORD BUT THAT DID NOT WORK

I need an idea/solution for blocking phishing mails sent to me by someone using my own e-mail address. So far I only delete them unopened and then empty the file with all the deleted mails.
If I I blocked such mails, I would not be able to receive any mails anymore via my own e-mail address.

Hello it's me again. Yep, those emails that said they were me, stopped again after I complained, but now there back to showing that I sent myself emails from girls looking for "love". Nope, still not a lesbian, so they are not for me at all, or from me. Still hoping that you'll fix this serious flaw. Have a nice day, I'm sure they'll be from who their really from for the next few days then go back to showing my email since that's been the pattern for the past few months. Just thought I'd let you know again. It's the ones from Jenna, and Katrina this time, in case you're actually looking into putting a stop to these nasty emails. Have a great day!
There is a junk Email addressing my Email address . Why is that here? .I did not create that. So, please do not use my email address for any purpose.

When will you make it so JUNK mail with my own address on is removed and not sent to me? Every day I have many that I BLOCK that have my own hotmail address on. I just know you can do better with this. thank you.

How about letting me block emails from my email id that I did not send?
My email is getting spoofed. I may cancel completely. I don't like getting random and inappropriate emails from my own email address. I think there should be a way to not have this happen. My suggestion is find a way to deal with this.

How is a spammer able to send me spam using my own e-mail address as the sender? I can't even block them as I would be blocking my own e-mail.
I keep getting emails that say they come from myself. How do I stop this from happening?
How is my email address used for ****** spam emails?
I have changed my password within the past week and yet I still see my email as the sending address in those emails.
Thank you, kindly!
My sister received an email that looked like it was from me, but I didn't sent it. This was at the bottom of the message:
Sent from [/do/redirect?url=https%253A%252F%252Fgo.microsoft.com%252Ffwlink%252F%253FLinkId%253D550986&hmac=0bc70b074ba3ab043f6d02e12bdd28a7]Mail for Windows 10
Does that indicate my email was hacked?
Please do something about all the junk emails that come in under my email address. I can't block it because it is my address.
Please let me know if there is something I can do to stop spam/inappropriate emails being sent from MY OWN email address...if not, please think of a way to stop this. It is becoming very annoying.
please allow me to block email from my own account (email@example.com). This would eliminate 90% of the junk mail that I get. Spammers must know that you do not block such email, why else would they keep sending junk from my own address? Should be a pretty simple fix.
