I recently began receiving spam e-mails from my own e-mail address, and although I block them, they still keep coming; is anyone familiar with this problem?

Contact your ISP...I doubt that someone is spoofing your email address...and then sending spam to you from the same address.no point.

Seems like standard spoofing to me.  It's also very difficult to filter out since it's your own e-mail address that's being used as the "From:"

 

Typically there are other markers that would make it be considered spam and I'd definitely classify it as such either through the web interface you're using or within the e-mail client program.
