You can try to contact Yahoo Support and see if they have a backup. But generally, unless you make a backup yourself, its most likely lost. However, do try Yahoo Support first.

HI This is Alex Walker Expert for Email Computer and PC Desktop software installation Troubleshooting Call +1404981-1535 I will be glad to Assist you


Hi Alex

Interesting! Are you getting back a reply from your own company?

Looks to me like, someone hacked your account or this is an automated message that is sent to everyone who sends out a inquiry or via email.

I suggest you check your outgoing email service or contact your email provider and see if some place, your account was hacked.

How do I see what devices have been using my google account


Recognize the signs of unauthorized access on your email account.
An obvious indicator is when email messages appear as having been read even though you haven't read them.

Also, if you check the "Sent Mail" and "Deleted Mail" folders, you may notice messages that have been emailed or deleted without your permission.

Another sign is if the secondary email account has been changed.
Check the "Sent Mail" folder for forwards from your email account.

The email address that receives the forwards is likely to be owned by your email hacker.
The same is true if the secondary email account has been changed.

The owner is probably the person who has unauthorized access to your email account.
Check the IP addresses of the activity on your email account.

If you are using Google's Gmail service, this is as simple as logging in and scrolling to the bottom of the page.
There it will indicate the time and the IP address of the last activity on your email account.
If you click on the activity monitor, you can find even more information about the person who accessed your email account.

(If you have another email provider, you will have to contact their support for this information.) The IP address indicates the location and identity of the person who has logged into your account.

Someone sent spam email purportedly from me to everyone on my contact list. How can I prevent this from happening again?


Perform an immediate virus scan, your computer may be infected. Hackers get in through malicious links you may have clicked, and this is what results from those hacks.

Also perform malware and spyware scans, either of these can cause an issue such as this as well.

Change your password frequently, make it difficult so a hacker cannot gain access to your account.

Be sure to change your password after performing these scans, otherwise anything on your computer that a hacker will have, they will still have if you change your password prior to the scan.

Recently someone received an email that appeared to come from my email address but I did not send the email and no one has access to my computer other than me. Also I do not give my password to anyone....


Generally no! But are you sure someone did not see the passord you typed?

Check in the sent box of your account to see if there is a record of the mail being sent in the SENT BOX. If not then someone used your account elsewhere. Public PC's are often risky if you dont log out They also have key loggers on them put there by hackers to gain access to accounts of all kinds.

Change your password to a longer sequence and use ascii characters It makes it more diffoicult to crack

eg /mi*ke?>jones\
