Here’s another little spam prevention tip-
The email is most likely using a forged ‘from’ address- meaning it probably does not originate from your machine, or even your network. Someone has found your email address somewhere, created a spam email, and is using your address as the ‘from’ address. Sadly, this is easy to do.
If this is the case, there isn’t much you can do about it- the email address has been harvested either from a
1. webpage or
2. a fake unsubscribe linked to spam.
You just have to wait until they start using someone else’s email address to send.
Have a look at the page source on this website- you won’t be able to read any of the email addresses we publish as they are all encoded to hide from robots that scrape email addresses. When you click on a link to send us an email, they are decoded on the fly
