If you remember your deferred email account address and still log in to that email system you can contact yahoo mail directly at (800) 318-0162 and have them send you a password reset. Once you reset your password you can log in to Yahoo!Mail and close the account. They might even be able to confirm over the phone your idenity and close it directly but that is usually a long shot due to security reasons, but always worth asking about.

Access your E-mail account from a different computer and then try sending the email to your friends. Your computer is probably infected by an automatic E-mail sending virus/malware. Update your anti-virus software and then do a FULL virus scan of your computer. If you don't have an anti-virus software, you should get one. You can get some for free or free trial. Avast and AVG are highly recommended.

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.

Hello,

This is a common problem. Someone has hacked your email, and sent those messages.

You should probably change your password.

Hope this helps.

It appears someone has hacked into my yahoo email acct, my friends are sending messages that my yahoo email address is sending them malware & making it look like I am sending them something to open. ...


This has become a common problem in the past couple of months. Please follow the steps below in order:

1. Log on to your Yahoo mail account. Check in the "Sent" folder. If you see the bogus messages in question in that folder, then it can be assumed that someone has hacked your password and is using your account to send spam. You would then need to go to Step 3 (skip 2).

2. If you do NOT see the bogus messages in your "Sent" folder, then your Yahoo account has likely not been hacked, but rather someone else's computer (which does not use Yahoo) is infected with a malware bot that is sending out the messages independently of Yahoo, but spoofing your address as the sender. It gets the addresses to send to from that computer's contacts/address book. If this is the case, then you can't do much but advise your friends of the facts and that you're not responsible for the messages. Then go to Step 3.

3. In either of the above instances, it would be a good idea to first terminate your present Yahoo account, and open a new one with a different e-mail address. Choose a completely new, and hard to guess, password and new "secret questions." Advise your friends and contacts of your new address.

The problem that arises in these instances is that the user doesn't want to have to change their e-mail address, as that causes some inconvenience and is time-consuming. They would rather just change their password and secret questions and leave it at that. IF your situation is as in Step 1 (your account was hacked), then this MAY be sufficient. However, whomever hacked it knows your address and basically who you are, and had access to your address book. Your security is compromised any way you look at it.

The safest and most reliable method is to change your address, and your password/secret questions...and to advise your friends to please make sure their computers are clean of malware.

I strongly suggest using SpyBot Search & Destroy v1.6.2 from Safer Networking for malware protection. It is highly regarded, free, and not too difficult to use.

Hope this is helpful.

Some of our email friends are receiving ads from an outside source through our email account. How do I fix that?


Scan your computer for any possible malware that may steal confidential information. Some infections cause your computer to send out unsolicited emails or some may steal your login information and use your account for spamming or other illegal stuff.
Change the password of your email account.

Hope this helps! :D

E-a-mail security problem?


I have experienced this same pop-up. I have been a Yahoo mail client for the past 14 years and I can tell you with a certain level of confidence that this is something you don't need to worry a about. It's a conflict between the yahoo mail server and the yahoo messenger server.
