SPAM from me?

This chap has a good explanation for SPAM emails that appear to come from your own email address. Very annoying issue, but he explains it well.

Email servers have no way of verifying where an email came from. So it is easy to use a "From:" address of anyone you want. As long as I can connect to your mail server, I can send you an email From: anyone I want, your mail server will accept it as long as the rcpt to: is correct.
