You can change the password to the email and delete all those annoying e-mails. I have had this happen in my AOL account. I changed the password and now they stopped coming. This happened on April 1st when all those annoying things started.
You may want to change passwords for other online sites you use just in case they read your emails that had passwords in them.

You may have to do it manually but first you need to downl;oad an antivirus as this sounds like a virus has hit your computer HARD. a good antivirus is ANTIVIR or MALWAREBYTES ANTI-MALWARE.

good these both and download the free versions. Scan your computer and maybe the contacts will go with the virus.

Is there a method to repair corrupted Outlook 2010 Address Book?


To fix this you can remove the Outlook Address Book service, restart Outlook, and then add it again as indicated by the steps above.
Sadly this workaround will not work in Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 as removing the Outlook Address Book service is not supported in these versions. In this case, you must recreate your mail profile.
(Re)creating a mail profile..
1. Press the button Add...
-Do NOT use Copy... not even when you want to recreate your mail profile or you'll end up copying the corruption as well.
-Do NOT delete your old profile, not even when it is corrupted, before you verified that the new one works. You might want to lookup some account settings afterwards.
2. Enter a name for your new Mail Profile.
3. Select to add a new mail account.
4. Make sure you choose the correct account type. Ask your ISP or
administrator if you do not know this.
-If you are using Live Hotmail, Gmail, Yahoo or AOL, you can find the settings you need here.
-In Outlook 2007, Outlook 2010 and Outlook 2013, you can simply type your desired display name, email address and password and Outlook will try to determine and configure your account automatically.
If this fails you can still choose to configure it manually with the
information provided by your ISP.
If actions on above can't get back your address book, then try third
party software Address Book Repair Toolbox

It does like my email address?what do I do?


Have you received a spam email that appears to have you as the sender?

There can be a number of reasons.

It is your turn to be the spoofed sender. They have your email address. They pretend that you have sent it, but you didn't, they spoofed the mail server to look as though it was you.

Your mail account has been hacked. The clue to that is if the recipients of the email are all people in your address book.

I had one the other day which displayed my name as sender, but the email address under it was not mine. I reckon that came from someone that knows me and has my name and email address in their contacts.

Step 1 Tap the "Mail" app on your iPad's home screen, tap "Other" and tap "Mail Account." If you already have an email account set up, tap the "Settings" icon on the home screen, tap "Mail, Contacts, Calendars" in the sidebar and tap "Add Account."
Step 2 Type your name into the "Name" box using the onscreen keyboard. You can enter any name you want; your iPad sends this name with each email you send.
Step 21 Type your full AOL email address in the form "Name@aol.com" into the "Address" box. If you have an AOL email address with a different domain, such as "@games.com" or "@love.com," use that domain instead.
Step 31 Enter your AOL email password into the "Password" box.
Step 41 Type a description for your email account into the "Description" box and tap "Next."
Step 51 Tap "IMAP" at the top of the New Account pane.
Step 61 Type "Imap.aol.com" into the "Host Name" box under "Incoming Mail Server."
Step 71 Type "Smtp.aol.com" into the "Host Name" box under "Outgoing Mail Server."
Step 81 Enter your full AOL email address into the "Username" boxes under both "Incoming Mail Server" and "Outgoing Mail Server."
Step 91 Enter your AOL email password into the "Password" boxes under "Incoming Mail Server" and "Outgoing Mail Server."
Step 101 Tap "Next." Your iPad verifies the settings.

Arlene.Lamparter


Arlene, I can describe a problem that is common, called spoofing. When someone receives an email thought to be from you, we immediately think that our email has been hacked. You may be the victim of a spoof, where a hacker uses your address book to send out viruses or just annoyances to everyone in your address book. Spammers use this technique to hide their identity (like putting someone else's return address on an envelope). Some are harmless, others harmful, all are invasive. You may be able to get rid of the problem by running a malware detection program (I use malwarebytes, which is free to private users, and I run it at least once per month.), but you should also change your password in your instant messenger/email/facebook account, etc. In fact, it is a good idea to change your passwords regularly to keep the unfriendly out. I hope this helps.

Combine Multiple Gmail Accounts
You can combine multiple Gmail accounts into a single, primary Gmail account by using the POP3 Mail Fetcher application built into Gmail.
The Mail Fetcher enables you to retrieve email from POP3 email accounts, including Gmail, and send mail as if from a different email address all from within your primary Gmail account. Configure your primary account to manage your other Gmail accounts with the Mail Fetcher.

Sign in to the Gmail account that you want to use to manage your Gmail accounts.
Click the "Settings" icon, represented by a gear cog, in the top left and click "Mail Settings."

Click the "Accounts and Import" tab.
Click the "Add POP3 Email Account" button.
Enter the email address of your secondary email account and then click "Next Step."
Enter the password of your secondary email account and then click "Add Account."

[SECONDARY EMAIL ADDRESS]" and then click "Next Step."
Enter the display name for your secondary email address and then click "Next Step."
Click "Send Verification" and then check your secondary email account.
Click the link contained in the verification email to confirm the integration of that account with your primary Gmail account.
All mail sent to your secondary Gmail is now delivered to your primary account, and when responding your secondary Gmail address is displayed in the From section of the email.

My hotmail account has been blocked


I would get another one or contact Hotmail support for blocked email support and solution, please read below for another option if you just cannot get another account and have to have the old one.

Hotmail accounts do not get blocked unless the account has been used to mass mailing or other illicit use. If you did not mass mail or other illicit behavior, I suggest that your account was hacked.

If your MSN/Hotmail Account has been hacked!

If your MSN Account has been hacked, go to MSN email support:

When i log in my password it says incorrect password. Iv tried to reset my password. On the face book screen it says a password code was sent to my e-mail. But when i check my e-mail address its not there....


there is a way to have it sent to another email; address. at the login screen, click "forgot your password?" at the next scree, use the third option to "Enter your name and a friend's name." Do this, and make sure that you spell each name as it appears in facebook. then you'll be taken to a page that says "Reset Your Password?" and it should show the email address you have linked to the account. Click the "No longer have access to these?" option. then it will ask for your new email and to confirm it. You will then be asked a security question. Enter this, and it will say an email has been sent to the new email you provided. hope this helps.

Can i open a gmail account and still make people believe it is coming from my old email address


In a way, yes. Once you open up your gmail account, go to Mail Settings *under the gear in the upper-right corner*, then go to Accounts and Settings, and click the button "send mail as another account." It will go through a process where it sends an email to the other address and you need to verify it, then you can send emails and have them appear as the other address.
Just remember: when you compose the email you need to change the Send From field to reflect the address you desire the recipient to see.
Hope this helps!

I have a old aim account that I have not used in ahile. I dont remember my password and says it has sent me a new one via email. The email I provided to aim has been deleted


Your password will be sent to the most current e-mail address that they have on record for your screen name. If you have changed your e-mail address and did not notify the AIM system of that update, then your password will still be sent to your old e-mail address. If this occurs and you are no longer able to access e-mail at your old address, then there is no way for them to inform you of your AIM password. In this case, you must register another screen name by choosing on the Sign On screen, and then clicking Sign On. Therefore, if you are planning to change your e-mail address, update your new address in AIM before you delete the old e-mail account.
