Is all this SPAM showing up in your "Sent" items folder?
If not, this is probably a case of your email address being "spoofed" as the sender - by a bot using your return address.

I would make sure to have a strong password for your email account.  It should be at least 8 characters, with both letters and numbers in it.  10 characters would be even better.

Osloiite,
It is unfortunate that you think "strong password" is some kind of solution to this problem.

In the future you should consider actually responding to those of us trying to help you.

It will help you get real answers.
