strange holiday username associated with my email account

I saw something strange when I sent an email to myself. Instead of showing my name and my email, it showed "holiday calendar" something and then my email address. I tried logging into my email account and it is grayed out. Refreshing the screen takes aways the grayed out part, but then cursors just spin and my account info never loads. Then the other tabs just show a "something went wrong" message. This has been like this for quite a while. Not only today. I changed my password and tried to create new email addresses on my computer, hoping the strange generic name would go away from my account. (Business emails I've sent out will be perceived as spam or something with this phony name associated with the email.)


Something seems to be very strange with my emails lately. Can anyone from Comcast explain what has been going on? Has anyone else experienced this? I suspect someone hijacked comcast's email accounts - or some of them.
