Weird thing with my business gmail account.

First, thanks for all you guys do. 


I have a weird thing going on with my business gmail account and I'm wondering if anyone has any insight on if this is a virus or what to do and how to stop it.  We are a small business and the three of us using our domain are having the same issue. We work out of our homes and are not networked together in any way. 


I am getting viruses sent as email attachments (which of course I don't open) from myself to myself.  I can see the email sent in my sent folder through the online gmail (though not through my outlook) and see it in received in my inbox.  The weird thing is, I am only seeing them sent to and from myself.  No one else in my contacts is getting these spam emails, including my two associates that are having the same problem.


So I have spent time on the phone with google and of course: changed passwords, added dkim and spf to our dns, scanned pc's with malwarebytes and other antivirus software, and added two layer access to everyone's account.  Yet still, we are sending and receiving more and more of these emails a day.


The google guy said to change our spam filters so we don't see the emails, but that still means they are being "sent".  Is this a virus on our side?  A google problem? And most importantly, is there anything we can do about it?


Any thoughts?


Thanks for any input.
