Remember, edit replies. I too have received a number of emails with my address spoofed as the sender. I was worried that I would open them accidentally, so I made a mail rule to delete them. Unfortunately, whenever I used my convenient method of sending myself a page by email or copying and pasting some important info into an email and sending it to myself, those also ended up in the deleted folder. It took me a while to figure out why some reminder to myself didn't arrive. I have since removed it from my rules.
