I cant get email from an spacial contact?


Why not?
Does the contact send you mail? does the contact use the right mail address? did you put the mail address from your specie; contact in the block list in stead of in the contact list?
So many things can go wrong.
Try sending he contact a short mail and ask if he / she will replay. Not let him / her type over the address. Then check if the mail arrives.

Someone has hacked into my contacts list and has been sending marketing emails to my contacts with my email adress. people are naturally thinking that it has come from me, which it hasn't. What do i...


  • Thank you for the opportunity to assist you.


  • I have seen this a lot. You have not been hacked per say. You have a nasty malware. What happens is when this link is clicked it harvests your contacts and sends e-mails to your friends as if it was you. It could have been a friend (with you in their contact list) clicking a link as well. Then all your friends get this and some are bound to open it and then their contacts are harvested and it just spreads like mad. Your e-mail is safe.





  • First thing is to secure your account, fortunately Google has some great ways to do this right away. Then you need to contact all in your contact list and tell them to delete any e-mails they might have received from you in the past few days.








  • For Your Account Security:
  1. Settings -> Accounts and Import -> Google Account Settings -> Change Password (pick a new secure password)
  2. Settings -> Accounts and Import -> Google Account Settings -> Change Password Recovery Options (verify secret question, SMS and recovery e-mail address)

  • To Check For Potential Spam:
  1. Settings -> General -> Signature (make sure nothing as been added)
  2. Settings -> General -> Vacation Responder (make sure it's disabled and empty)

  • To Protect Against E-mail Theft
  1. Settings -> Accounts and Import -> Send Mail As (make sure it is using your correct e-mail address)
  2. Settings -> Filters (no filters that forward or delete e-mail)
  3. Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> Forwarding (disabled or correct address)
  4. Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> POP Download (disabled)
  5. Settings -> Forwarding and POP/IMAP -> IMAP Access (disabled)

  • The steps listed will make things safe again. Keep in mind that who ever did this still has your e-mail address and can continue to use this. So you may consider changing your e-mail if it becomes to confusing for your contacts to differentiate your genuine e-mails from spam. These fake mails "from you" will probably just be a plain link. Sometimes a "OH MY GOSH, LOOK AT THIS" before hand to accent "importance."


  • Good luck to you and please feel free to ask any further questions you may have.

  • If you feel this has been beneficial to you then please rate this solution and leave a comment so that others know of my quality help.

  • Hope this helps.
Regards,Tony

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.

please try first to send a test mail to your own email address.if you were able to receive the test mail, it's not the yahoo issue.you need to ask the receiver to check his/her list of blocked email addresses. it could be that yahoo was included in the list.

Someone is emailing me on facebook with abusive mail


Any time you get abusive mail from Facebook,you can report the offender by:

Reporting Abusive Content and Blocking People
To report abuse, please use the proper "Report" link that appears next to many pieces of content on the site. You may also report another user by using the "Report/Block" link that appears at the bottom of a user's profile page. If this does not resolve the issue, we suggest that you block the person by listing his or her name in the "Block List" box that appears at the bottom of the Privacy page.

If you know the offender's real email provider, you can send a Copy of the Offensive e-mail to his/her e-mail provider, by sending a copy to his/her e-mail provider:

For Example. abuse@ hotmail, gmail, yahoo, whatever their e-mail provider .com] but only if you know their REAL e-mail/web-mail provider.

Then
1. CUT/PASTE the offending mail, including senders e-mail address to: Facebook at this Address:
[Cut/Paste this into your browser] http://www.facebook.com/help/?topic=privacy
2. Reporting Spam... Next, look Beneath The Subject (To The Right of: "Back to Messages" and "Mark as Unread", you will want to choose: Mark As Spam. and then Delete).

Thank You For Choosing FixYa~!

My E-mail address Pkaiser2006@yahoo.com was stolen and the people on my e-mail address book have been subjected to ridiculous stories. Most end with the imposters asking for money. my current address is...


sign into your old account using your original password. if the password was changed sign in using your security question(s) or hopefully you provided an alternate address that they would send you the password or the ability access your account. once you have signed back in immediately change the password. that should solve the issue. please send emails to all the people on your list telling them that your account was hijacked. if you cannot regain access to your account report it to yahoo as a hijacked account.

Someone has gotten all my contacts off my computer and is sending spam and links using my email address, HELP


This is the main reason why you are getting all this spam email. 95% of all junk mail you get is because you gave your email address to somebody, somehow, somewhere.

Ask yourself to whom you gave your email address.

Examples to whom you disclosed your email address

Online Forums
News Groups
Sign-ups software downloads
From IRC and chat rooms
Your homepage
Your business card
White & yellow pages
Your friends!
This list only contains the main sources where you disclose your email address.

Other sources of Spam Email

Through Mail Relaying
Mail Relaying is sending mail to a user that is not local to the server you have connected to. It slows down your email and gives spammers free bandwidth.

Through dictionary attacks
This happens when spammers connect to your server and just trying random address or even stepping through the alphabet. Some servers will block the sending server after X number of failures, some set max recipients per message and others set a delay between recipients to slow down the spammer, causing them to go elsewhere.

Through the selling of e-mail addresses
Companies sell your information to other companies.

Trojans/Script capturing
By using HTML e-mails, spammers can confirm your email address. Best to disable preview window and delete the message. You can disable HTML or even block the email client from communicating on port 80.

Thanks

Have a great day.

Sending emails using GMail on the iPhone


To fix the responding issue, you need to tell your iphone which account is the default account for sending your emails.

touch settings, then mail, and at the bottom of that page in the sending section it asks which account is your default.

The iphone will always use this accoutn to send emails if you start an email outside of the mail program, like by clicking an email in your contacts list or on a webpage.

Now if your in another POP account in the mail program and you click compose message it should be sent from that account.

Hope this helps :)
