"TO" addresses in my inbox belong to someone else ... and are spam advertisements
This is really weird AND annoying.
I have begun getting a lot of spam emails where the "TO" address shows up in my inbox as
and I do not have an address account like this defined Plus all the messages are selling something. (See attached example)
Thunderbird specifically says it "Thinks this is spam" ... but it puts it in my inbox anyway!!!
I am trying to figure how to get this to stop.
Please help!!! Bruce

A spammer is using BCC: instead of TO: to distribute their mail. Nothing out of the ordinary there.

Note block a TO is the same a blocking a sender, you just use the to: rather than the from:
