I keep getting emails from someone using my email. They go to Spam but it hasn't stopped. What can I do?

I've changed my password several times. I'm worried that my email is being used to spam other people. My computer hasn't detected a threat and the fraudulent email is going straight to spam. But how can someone use the same handle as me?

    I checked your account, and it doesn't appear to be compromised. It could be that someone accidentally gave out your email address as a mistake. Your email address is like a telephone number -- it is able to be contacted by anyone who has it. So if someone gave it out by mistake, you will receive the emails intended for them.

    If you would like to block these emails, you can find out how to do that in "Blocking messages from an email address or domain", available at:

    Open up the junk mail, possibly originates from the comparable company. and verify unsubscribe it's going to be on the backside of the e mail and supply up going to the DODGY web pages including your e mail handle!!
