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.

My Yahoo account has been hacked. It send emails to my contacts without my knowledge. I would like to stop it from sending emails and would like to save my old emails in it.


Somebody knows your ID and your password.
Change your password.
You may need to answer your "secret" questions, in order to prove that it is you, the account-owner, that is trying to change the password.

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.

If you have an alternate email contact have yahoo send you the forgotten password/user name to that email account and see if maybe that will fix it. I had to go through that when I got my divorce.

When I send a email from my yahoo mail it shutsdown my yahoo mess


Welcome to FixYa
  • Check your Messenger is Sign in at the Time of Sign in to Yahoo mail
  • Check in MOBILE phone/any other Device as you Signed in
  • Check in any other Browser as you Signed in
  • Check any other yahoo account is Signed in your Computer
  • Restart your PC
  • Sign out from Mobile/any other Device
Yahoo has prevented us from having 2 Instant Messaging capable programs open and active at the same time.
For example, Yahoo Messenger with Yahoo Mail or Yahoo Web messenger, your mobile phone, Ipod, or other computers etc. etc.
Yahoo classifies all these programs as "Different devices or locations". Navigating from one to the other will close one program and you may get the notification message you refer to.

OR someone has hacked into your account- Report to Yahoo and Try to Recover it-Send report Politely and concisely.Do not try to Send More report for Same cause..

Hacked Id


Yes your email has most likely been hacked. This obviously means someone is reading your mail. Create a new account with a totally different user name (if your user name was leannraven don't make it leannraven2) and send an email to all of your friends to send mail to your new one and to stop sending to the old one. I don't know of any other way to fix this.
