    In my Yahoo mail box I keep getting 'Undelivered Mail Returned to Sender' and 'Failure Notice from [email protected]' emails. They state that my attempt to email (a list that includes everyone in my address book) has failed. Only I never tried emailing all of them with the chosen subject matter.

    Here is the email I supposedly sent them:

    What should I do? :confused:

    Thanks for all the information Phantom010. The internet truly is a hall of mirrors. ;)

    In order for somebody to have been able to do this they must have been able to gain access to my yahoo address book? Does this mean that somebody out there knows my username/password to my yahoo account?

    Spam pisses me off. Even if it does no specific damage it is using up bandwidth in the telecommunication system, a finite resource that costs money to be built and maintained. Mass spamming is no different from people driving on the roads and paying no road tax. Doing this is considered a form of theft, wearing out a public utility for your personal gain without paying for it. Driving around without motor tax is a crime. Perhaps spamming should be as well.

    Well, actually, there are laws. But, spammers seem to get around them quite easily...
