    ok, i do actually know how it is possible. if you have the ability to say what the sender's address is, you can change it to say that it is the same as the adressee. i am just freaked because i send things to myself as a reminder of stuff i gotta do. and i KNOW i didn't send this. i did not click on the link, but i did open the attached picture file, which was a gif file for buying prescription drugs. if anyone wants to actually see this, i can forward the email.
