Hotmail had the same issue recently.

You are I am assuming using a 3rd party email client. So you don't actually go to the Yahoo website and send mail?

If this is the case go to the website and check your sent box from there.
You may find that mail HAS been sent from your account after all.

In any case I would suggest you change your password to your email account as it sounds like someone is accessing it and sending mail on your behalf.

If you know your account is sending spam I'm guessing it's because someone in your Contacts list informed you. This is a surefire way of knowing your account has been hacked and a password change should be done ASAP!

How do I get my email addresses off of a blacklist?


Firstly, change your password on both accounts, as both accounts may be compromised, secondly run a virus/malware scan on all your devices that you use to access these accounts (avast for virus scan, unless you already have an up to date anti virus installed. Malware bytes for Malware and maybe a scan with super anti spyware wouldn't go amiss). After you have done all of this then you can start looking into why your accounts are flagged as spam. It could be the IP address that your Internet provider has given you has previously been flagged as a spamming IP Address, try turning your router off for about 20 minutes so when you turn it back on you get a new IP address and try again then. As an individual user there is not much more you can do apart from contacting google and Yahoo, they both have forms online (a little tricky to find) that you can fill in to ask to be removed from the blacklist. It may be prudent to have a look at the goole terms for bulk sending as well to make sure you are not falling fowl of googles t&c's. Hope that helps.

How can someone send email from my account without me knowing it?


I fear your account may have been hacked by someone you don't even know. Please try to change the password of your account as early as possible for your own safety and watch what happens.

Hope this helps, Mrityunjay.

An e-mail was sent to every person on my yahoo mailing list for Viagra. The message looks like I sent it but I did not


Hello,

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

You should probably change your password.

Hope this helps.

My yahoo mail is sending strange messages to my customers trhougt addressses of my mail list this cause to me alot of troubles please help me to discover what happen


This most probably is because of an attacking virus or spam email that you may have accidentally registered to and is now attacking your email. Delete your email account as soon as possible and it's suggested you open a new one as well as scanning your computer for malware, spyware and viruses!

When i type in the chat dialogue box and press send, i can not see the text either sent or received and in chat rooms online contacts are not visible


Is a virus.
Now update your anti-spyware (Spyware Doctor or MalwarebytesAnti-Malware are recommended) and run a full system scan.
You can download "malwarebytes anti-malware" on this page:
http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php install it update,and run a full scan

If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonialfor my response.

My yahoo mail is compromised. I get delivery failure messages when I did not send any and friends are complaining about messages from my account that I did not send. How do I fix ,this.


Something that you opened has 'read' your contacts list and sent a spam message to them all.

Delete all messages received since it began happening just in case someone you know sent it without realising. Sounds like Malware virus or similar.

When sending an email using yahoo mail program ,


Make sure that you are not on the blocked list of the reciepent. If this is not he case ask him to check the spam/bulk folder. This is becausemails with certain keywords are automatically redirected there. Ask the reciepent to open it and mark your mail as "Not spam". That should prevent this from happening in future.

I sent a friends email address to spam by mistake,I havent got any emails since how do I retrieve the address from spam and is it blocked by sending to spam


Hi, It is not your fault that your mail to your friend entered spam. Email service providers usually have that issue especially yahoo. Gmail is better in that it accepts most mail without spamming then. Mails in spam folders are usually automatically deleted after some time on Yahoo. What you need to do is tell your friends who use Yahoo to include your name in their address books. That way, when they get mail from you, it will not enter spam. You can always check your "Sent" folder for a copy of the mail you sent earlier that didn't get to them.
Cheers.

My e-mail address is being used for spam scam.


Do a full scan of your computer using this program: Click Here
And also this one: Click Here

Please remove anything you find.

A lot of the time trojan viruses send out spam to people through their email address without the person infected ever knowing.
