I received in my AOL mailbox a "congratulations you won a trip" spam....from my own yahoo account. I know that I didn't send it...
at first I thought that it was an automatic mailing...but I have received same e-mail from other yahoo users as well. Things that make you go ..hmmm....

I had the same problem with tons of spam that I figured out was generated from Yahoo. Here's how you can stop future spam from them:
Sign onto your e-mail
In the upper right corner, click on "Mail Options"
Then on the left of the screen, click on "Account Information"
Put your password in again.
Then down in the middle, click on "Edit your Marketing Preference"
You'll probably discover that everything is checked "Yes" under "Include Me". You can check everything "NO" now.
Plus, it probably has your aol account as your alternate e-mail. Change it to something else that you never use.
Also, you can click on "No" for do not call me and do not mail me.
A little known way around Yahoo's marketing efforts! :cool3:

Thank you so much, it just seemed odd that the spam was coming from my Yahoo account...if I was a spammer why would I spam myself??? Spam Spam and more spam...lol
