so a month or so ago me and my daughter began getting these obvious fake scam emails. but they are spoofing our own email address.
I changed the passwords for both of our emails at least 3 times and yet they still come through. we ran a virus scan and it found nothing, and well we've tried everything. I don't understand why this is happening and why they can't be stopped. we get about one a day in the inbox.
These types of emails are usually sent from another server, and they set the "From" email address to appear as yours. Setting up an SPF record can sometime help reduce or prevent these emails. See this article for some more information on SPF records and how to add one.
