Thanks, Carolina.
I'd like to add one correction to your steps.

Step 3 should not be optional, but mandatory! All people, using someone 
else email services (Gmail, Yahoo, Hotmail, etc.) should by default use 
2-factor authentication. It could be through SMS (text message) to your 
phone, or through using the Google Authenticator, etc.

As for the filters - check if someone has not authorized a third party 
to be able to send addresses as if from you (I have helped a diplomat at 
the UN deal with exactly that kind of problem), and also they may 
forward all your incoming mail, and then delete it, so that you won't be 
able to see that something is wrong.
