Possible spam through my e-mail account

Hello . . . I routinely get a small amount or spam to my domain's e-mail addresses.  However, sometimes, when I look at the headers (which I realize can be spoofed), the originating domain appears to be a GoDaddy server.  My concern is that it might be originating from my own account (even though there's nothing in the Sent folder).  I'm pasting the beginning (and I hope relevant) headers from a recent one below as an example (I put "xxxxx" in place of my domain):

 My questions:  (1) could this be from my account?  (2) if so, what are the steps I can take to better secure my account?  


My apologies if this is the wrong forum for such a question.  Thanks for any information.



Helper VI

Hello @allan2016
This is a public forum.
In order to establish if those emails originated from your server you will have to contact a GoDaddy customer service representative who can access and investigate your hosting account.
I hope this will help you.
Good luck.

Recently I have been getting spam emails and did not seem to be able to block them.  I contacted Godaddy technical service and they said there is no way to block the IP address. The email is originated from the same place with the first part of the IP address is the same and then 5 different numbers after the first 7.The first part of the IP address on these is  Each email has a different email address that is not  a legitimate domain so there seems no way to block them.

After discussing this with your technical department, I was managing my Premium Plus Email accounts and a hacker has been in my account and found all the addresses at my domain and is sending these emails to them also.

Is there any way to block these?
