Ghost E-mail

Ghost E-mail

I'm seeing e-mails with the subject "Delivery Status Notification" on blank e-mails that I didn't send.  I'm fairly sure the account is still secure, but I changed the password just to be safe.  The e-mails are still trying to send, though.  Nothing in my Sent items, Deleted Items or Drafts.  The addresses were in my Address Book, though, and I basically knew who they were.  Including my dead ex-wife. I'm guessing my address was spoofed, but it seems odd that the e-mails would go out to addresses I was familiar with.  Any suggestions?  Can my Sent history be tracked?

Re: Ghost E-mail

I think you're correct-----it's spoofing.  But how is it sending to people you know?  My take on that is that you have sent legitimate emails to those people in the past.  Remember that everything in the To or Cc fields is in the clear when you send it.  So your email address is associated with the others.  They don't need to compromise your address book to harvest that information.  I've gotten emails from people I know who say they never sent it to me, and they had not been hacked.
