you neglected to add basic info, as... do you run your own mail server, or
do you go through your ISP?  In any event, if they did not originate from
your computer/server, you are the victim of a joe-job, google for it.
There is nothing really you can do, except to notify the ISPs IP addresses
where the spam is originating from..

so, give her a new email address, and cancel the old one, and notify the
ISP of the IP address where the "sick person" is coming from. .
