There cannot be anything in your machine to justify bad emails you receive. In my opinion, you are wasting your time, you machine and possibly other things with things like Malwarebytes. The chance of that is very very very very very very very very low. Just accept that if you publish your email in newsgroups, you will eventually receive bad messages, which you may even call spam.

If you use a good operating system, good programs, and care what you do in your machine, you will never put any malware in it.

If the messages are not frequent, as I bet, you may simply ignore them.

If they are frequent and do not stop, you may train your mail services to consider them spam. By "mail services" I meant: programs you use, similar to Thunderbird; webmail services; or mail providers - whatever applies.

An alternative to spam engines is to create a message filter for the unwanted messages. Sometimes there are a good and easy option.

I'm not the one receiving bad messages, it's a domain I'm not familiar with. Those emails appear to come from me but I only see the originals directed to a Mozilla newsgroup. (See my original message to this thread above.)

All right, I misunderstood, again.

I have also received e-mails, supposedly sent by me, and also set to many other e-mail addresses.

I spoke, personally, with my ISP to see what might happen if any of these other e-mail address owners were to complain about me to my ISP and he stated that he had confidence that it was not me that was doing the spamming, so would not act on the reports.

My be worth while you having a similar conversation with your ISP!!
