Yahoo email sending out emails on it's own

My yahoo mail account txpeapicker@yahoo.com keeps sending out emails to all of my contacts on it's own. I have Norton loaded onto my computer and it has said anything about a virus. How can I find out why it's doing this? My contacts are getting very irritated at me.

Hello laurenloscia

alot of the times, just going into internet options and setting everything to default, and clearing the cookies and files works about 50% of the time.

This is possibly a yahoo issue. If you use yahoo thru ATT, you can call ATT for support and they will escalate any valid issues to yahoo for you.

Their phone number is 1-877-722-3755

ask for tech support at the prompt

they can remote on your computer to see if it is a java issue or whatever

if they can replicate it on their computer also, they will create a yahoo trouble ticket and give you thier member service number. Yahoo resolves 85% of these within 48 hrs.

If they cant replicate it, then they will consider it a pc issue and refer you to connect tech or to best buy's geek squad.

Personally, I would also try sending emails in safemode, If you can do it in safemode, and not in reg mode, it is definately PC related.

To get to safemode, turn your computer off and when you turn it back on, tap the F8 button until you get an advanced screen. Pick safemode with networking with the arrow keys. Log in, click yes when it tells you you're running in safemode, and then when your on your desktop, which will look alot differnt, black background with big icons, click on internet explorer and go to mail.yahoo.com and see if it works now, if it does, like i said, its pc related. If it still cant, call ATT's support if you have thier DSL or U-Verse

SOURCE: My yahoo email account keeps hanging.

maybe you have switched this account to classic. or there are such mail or app which is not supported by your current browser. please try switching browser. Since, IE6 and IE7 is not currently supporting many new features , you should consider firefox, chrome or safari browser, if you are using IE.

Hello David,

Yes, in this scenario, your email was indeed compromised. This is caused by an infection on your pc or with the computer that you used in logging into your yahoo. Please do a thorough scanning of your computer. If your current antivirus does not detect the virus, you can use the antivirus below:

You should change your password immediately. It happened to me one time, I couldn't sign on to my yahoo messenger and the software advised me to change the password.
It was resolved by changing the password.

hey roger,

You will need to check your outgoing smtp settings in yahoo. Below is the information to set this up.

Yahoo Outgoing Mail Server (SMTP) - smtp.mail.yahoo.com (port 25)

Yahoo Plus Incoming Mail Server (POP3) - plus.pop.mail.yahoo.com (SSL enabled, port 995)

Hi... That's strange, huh?! If you hit the 'reply' and you know it was successfully sent then I think it's Yahoo that's at fault. You should contact Yahoo in order for them to fix it for you. I don't get why it should take up to five hours before your email could be returned to you. It's really strange. I've been a Yahoo user for years and haven't met that kind of problem yet.

Something is in my email sending emails to my contacts with me doing it.


Your Yahoo email or Yahoo Messenger account was most probably compromised. The virus is running a script that automatically send out SPAM or abuse emails to all your contacts save in your Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Messenger account. You can do a FULL virus scan on your computer to remove this. Below is a free but effective online scan that you can use:

You can also uninstall the currently installed Yahoo!Messenger and reinstall a new one.

Hope this helps.

Hi,
Check your yahoo mail id properly. Go to the 'My account" page and confirm your mail id whether its yahoo.com or yahoo.co.in or yahoo.co.uk or whatever. Then try sending to the right mail id which will let you recieve mails.
