HI Bleeping Computer,
it appears someone may have spoofed my email address and is sending spam to users who were in my address book plus to addresses in others address books.
 
The email is showing coming from someone else but the reply email is my emai.
 
Here is a kickback email I received from an email that doesn't exist anymore.
Mod Edit: Removed email content reflecting email addresses, moved topic to appropriate forum - Hamluis.
 
Is there a way to determine where the source of this is as my internet provider says they are not able to do anything about it.

You should probably reset your email. I have no experience with email spoofing but that might help you.

You can use mxtoolbox header analyzer tool.  Just dump the email header in the form and it will show the relay flows.  Unfortunately this doesn't help much because the emails are sent from different places around the world.  I'm also convinced that the situation is actually another person's account being hacked, and the spammers using a contact from that account for spamming.  I've already proven that there's no access to my account nor my laptop.  This is an unfortunate situation.
