Spam from me

    Why am I suddenly getting spam sent by me? When I click on it sure
    enough, it is sent from my email address. I would like to end this
    immediately, and if I can't I want to cancel my gmail account. How
    would I do that?

    Almost all spam has bogus information in the From, which bogosity can be
    your address or other 'innocent bystanders'. You didn't know that spam
    From was bogus?

    The type of 'clicking' you should do with spam in your gmail inbox is to
    indicate to gmail that it is spam.

    more spam you mark, the better our system will get at weeding out those
    annoying messages.

    You don't have any control over what kind of bogosity a spammer may use or
    whether you are sent spam. The only control in the case of a gmail
    account is that gmail does a pretty good job of recognizing spam and
    goodmail to put the spam in the spam folder and the goodmail in the inbox.
