20 minutes ago my gmail apparantly sent from self to inbox with the subject: 557, Body: 5556 including html tags.

What I don't understand is I just woke up and that email was waiting in there for me as if I sent it.

Anyone else got the same problem?

I got a couple of spam very much like that.
Gone now, so no details, but much the same.
Probably a spinoff of the 666 BS. -Larry

Thing is it came from me, and was sent to me, all headers conclude it was sent from gmails servers to gmails servers, there is nothing showing up any different apart from the fact that I was sleeping while It was sent.

Is the Devil coming to get me?

It's widespread spam, and it's not limited to gmail accounts.

Not sure what's its objective, but it's well done, because spam filters, even sophisticated ones (MessageLabs?) don't filter it out.

So your own address / moniker got spoofed. Sounds fairly sophisticated.
Maybe its an email spammer testing new tricks, masking himself as a numerologist or 666 freak. -Larry

Got the same thing in my Gmail box yesterday. Gmail does such a good job at filtering spam that this one caught my eye.
