Emails from 'myself'

I am getting emails claiming to come from my own address. Clearly this is not so. Blocking myself would be silly so is there a way I can tell what the real spammer/bot is and block it?

On a mobile device, you can usually see what the real email address is. Alternatively, could you look at the full headers on the email to see if you can find any information there?

Thanks. I have found out how to do that on Outlook 2010, but I cannot see the same on android devices.

I guess it depends on which email app is being used, but on most stock e-mail apps in Android, you can click the email address and select View Contact which will then reveal the real email address.

No. It is rhere sometimes. Sometimes not.
