Subject: RE: BS: Spam mail pretending to come from myself
THese are likely from someone whose system has been compromised by a trojan which is spoofing the "From" field. If so - -

Google how to get at the headers, and then go down the headers nearly to the end and you will see the real sender.

If they are traceable, phone them.

I had a spate of stupid similar stuff purporting to come from a firm of lawyers in the West Country, and their sysop and I tracked it down to a licensed conveyancer in North London who was tearing his hair out because his email was up the shoot - and it was all the trojan's fault.
