I'm using windows live mail with 5 or 6 email addresses. the anomaly first occurred in April, and now has happened twice yesterday and once this morning. this time they are selecting about 10 addresses at a time.

Nothing appears in my sent mail. one of the emails came to me since i'm in my own address book. the following is the email.

You may want to edit the sender and recipient addresses in your post a bit by adding or deleting a few letters. Otherwise, spambots trolling this site may pick them up.

Same thing has happened to me. Apparently I sent a link for porn to the President and VP at my company, to my daughter's teacher, a few architects who are working on a project for us, my IT Director, my ex-husband.

It was pretty hysterical actually. I deleted everyone in my address book and changed my password and that seems to have finally stopped it. It was going on for a few months. :p

Hi dk518,

I've edited your thread to change the email addresses to fake ones so you do not get more email problems, posting email addresses in an open forum is one way spammers and malware gets them.

Probably the very first thing you need to do is to change your email passwords. Second would be to do some malware scans which you may get assistance from a security/malware expert from this forum.

Thank you folks for the warning. I sure should have thought of deleting those addresses from the post myself.

Thank you for the suggestions as well.
