an e mail has been sent to all my addresses i have not sent it how does this happen


You used your E-mail on a computer that was infected with a keylogging virus and now the virus is sending out "spam" mail to everyone associated with your e-mail. Change your email password and scan your personal computer for viruses and spyware. Some good anti-virus/anti-spyware programs to use would be Malwarebytes, Avast!, and SuperAntiSpyware. Also, be careful about what computers you use from now on when you check your e-mail.
