The only way to tell where this is actually coming from is to look atht eh full email headers.

This will show if it is originating within your organisation or if its being sent by a spam zombie somewhere who has harveted her address. You do not mention what email system you are using, but a quic Google search should tell you how to obtain the full email headers of these mysterious messages.

No, new one for me. Sure the boss isnt involved?

Is it in her sent items? Not fool proof but could show that the message originated at her box. Do the headers show that it came from outside?

I have a few emails like that, from someone@my email address to me@my email address.
That happens when you post your email at forums or subscribed to sites where they sell/give your email address to phisers/scammers.

I have an email address that I use to subscribe newsletters, and use on online surveys, and my email account is bombarded with unbelievable junks where I have to install junk filter(I use Qurb) which works very well.

My pc is clean, so I ruled it out to my own doings of subscribing to not so trusted sites and posting on forums.

I don't worry about it now, they go straight to Qurb folder.
That might be what she needs, filter it out.
