Got this in my spam folder,

When I hover the cursor over the FROM, it has my email address. Not sure what Mail Demon is but assume a scam or phishing. My email address is still connected. :ROFLMAO:
 
How? When I write an email, there is no way to change the From in the message, just the to and the subject.

From is just a property. You can make it look like its from [email protected] if you like.

If you look at the message source (or Headers), you will probably see the actual address it was sent from. The headers provide a lot of clues as to the actual origin of the email.
 
If you have a web hosting account on a cpanel server it could be legit.

That said, I admin several cpanel servers and have never seen that email.
 
I keep getting fake messages saying my email account will expire on such and such and to click on this to restore it, but that's obvious scams as it's coming from some omnicraft.com or elkforcenature.com.
 
And where do I see these headers?
It depends on who your email provider is. If you google "view email headers in gmail" it will direct you on that and if you replace gmail with your own provider (if it isn't google) you should find the answer.

A lot of the stuff in the headers is tough to interpret if you don't know anything about it but that's where a lot of the interesting data is found. Here's an interesting site where you can take the headers from an email, copy/paste them in, and have it analyze them - it puts them in a bit easier to read format:

 
It depends on your email client. For example, Outlook, Thunderbird, native Gmail, native Apple Mail. Whatever your email client, Google how to view email headers for it.
I don't know what you mean by client but I use mail.com for email. And the only thing I found on Google was this from 13 years ago and is nothing like what the site is like now. https://www.emailquestions.com/threads/mail-com.3638/
 
Ok found it. Header is this and I crossed out my address:

I assume everything is a scam. It's a huge red flag when the sketchy email has an urgency to it that you must act quickly.
 
I am more than a little tired of getting emails from Harbor Freight and Lowes about some bonus or prize. I wish it were impossible for scammers to send emails from addresses that can't be responded to, because I've got some very choice responses for them.
 
Ok found it. Header is this and I crossed out my address:

The most important thing to note is your mail server detected this as spam, which is good. I don't know what the scale is on their spam score, but this one is a 20 with the "nemesis" anti-spam engine. Another clue is dkim=none. There are three authentication methods that mail servers use to determine legitimacy and deliverability of emails: DKIM, SPF, and DMARC. Here's more about that:

Basically, it appears as if there was no verification that email was from you, so it received a higher spam score and was sent to spam folder.

I don't see any evidence that SPF or DMARC were used, but it could be that when it failed DKIM it just stopped because it had enough info to determine its spamminess.

The last clue are the from and to servers. This was sent from smtp.4xr1.com ([27.0.234.26]). That IP address is in Singapore and the ISP is WebHorizon. The destination (you) is mx.mail.com (mxgmxus010 [74.208.5.22]). The IP location is somewhere in the Missouri/Pennsylvania area and the ISP is IONOS. So if you were sending yourself an email from the same email account, it should be coming from mx.mail.com, not 4xr1.com. That appears to be where DKIM failed the message.
