help spam

Hello,

 

I am not sure what is happening but my fiends keep getting spam from my e-mail. Can you help. This started yesterday and just happened again today.

Re: help spam

  Most likely your email address is being "spoofed", and if that is the case there is nothing you can do but wait it out.  Most spammers will use an address for a week or two and then move on to annoy someone else.  However it is possible that the account is compromised.  Check your Sent folder to see if there is anything in it you know you didn't send.  If there is the account has been compromised.  Change your password to something stronger than what it is now, and change the secret question and answer too.  Run a scan of your system with your A/V software.

 

This article explains why this happens------------------
