    Yesterday I noticed that in one of my email accounts, an email from another of my email accounts that I did not send. Also a friend asked why I was sending him advertising on emails, This was the same as the email that I had noticed just before. I ran IObit 360 and AVG but they didn't find any thing. Can you help.

    I have the same problem. I changed my password and deleted all my contacts except one. The one I left was my hotmail email just so I could see if this worked. It didn't. My email continued to spam itself. So, I deleted that email address in my contact list and entered in all the email addresses from the spammers. Now they are busy spamming themselves and I've opened another email account.

    I also ran several Malware programs on my computer and it appears to be clean at the moment. I sure hope someone comes forward and let's us know how they do this.
