My email is [email protected] (xx to keep it hidden!). But I have been receiving spam to [email protected]. But this is not my email address! Yet still it is appearing on my PC. Why?

I am using Outlook 2003 and the address was shown in teh To: field.

Thanks,

Jon

Because your address is in the BCC field of the email received, so it's not seen due to the custom SMTP email engine that the scammer scumbags use. Only a spoofed one is seen.
