I expect this is spoof - it's very easy for someone to send email from your address without being anywhere near your PC (look up spoof mail on google). However it could also be a virus - it's not usual for someone to get hold of your mail address and your friends unless they have access to your mail address list. I would scan you PC. google Free AVG if you don't have a good Anti Virus - it is free.

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

I forgot my email and password for my facebook account mamie soleil, what can i do?


  • Ask one of your Facebook friends to look at the About page of your Timeline and send you the email address listed in the Contact Info section.
  • Try entering every email address or mobile number you've owned (one at a time). You may have added an email address or mobile number to your account and forgotten about it.
  • Enter your username. Your username is your personalized Facebook URL:
  • If you don't know your username, ask a friend to go to your Timeline and send you the username in the URL.
  • Try entering variations of your name, just in case you signed up using a nickname.
  • If you're asked to enter a friend's name, try a variety of friends if the first friend you try doesn't locate an account. Remember to enter your friend's full name, not just their first name.

A lot of my friends complaint to me that i keep sending empty mail to them which i did not do it and at the same time i will received the message from mastermail box to inform me that failure delivery...


I would recommend changing your password because someone may possible be hacking in to your account and sending your friends unnecessary spam. If your friends are added to your account, then the failure to deliver mail is less likely to show up. Sometimes you may have to send it a second time, or call or text your friends to find out if they received it.

I want to use Skype IM but all I can get is a stupid ad for selling me phone time.


Hello,

if you are probably trying to cal your friends out of skype, so you need skype credit to call outside. Just in case you add your friends(who are on skype too) to skype, you can call for free.

You can add contact following these steps:

In the menu bar, click Contacts > Add a Contact.
fa3281e.png
Enter the Email, Phone number, Full name or skype name(if you already know your friend's name on skype) of the person you want to add. If the Skype account of the person you wish to add is displayed, click Add below the contact.
fa3281g.png
If more than one Skype account matches your search:
Click View for a list of matching Skype accounts and click Add contact next to the one you wish to add. Before the contact can be added, you must send a contact request to that person. Enter some text to introduce yourself and click Send request. The contact will be added to your contact list, but will appear offline until they accept your request. Once the person agrees to your request, they will be added to your Contact list. Then you can make free calls and free video calls to that person.


Hope this helps,
Lucas

How do i fix my facebook account its temporarily blocked.


Welcome to Fixya.

Here are the top reasons why Facebook accounts get disabled:


  • ****(Pictures, words, videos et al)

  • Adding too many friends too quickly

  • Spamming

  • Others (Facebook Administrator\'s discretion)
All you have to do is to send an email inquiry to :

disabled@facebook.com

Remember
to observe email etiquette and be polite to ask why your account got
disabled. Depending on your agreement with the administrator, this
request process usually takes 3 to 5 days before your account is
reactivated.

Thanks for using Fixya.

People in my email addresss contacts are getting spam emails from other sources but it looks ad though the emails are from my yahoo.com account


Sounds like a hack.

Copy and paste your contacts to a Notepad document. Or, if it's easier, in Yahoo with your contacts open, press the PrtScr SysRec button, open a Word document, and paste. If you have lots of contacts, scroll down and repeat until you've copied them all somewhere outside of Yahoo mail.

Then delete all your contacts from Yahoo mail (you can restore them later).

Then change your Yahoo password to something that can't be easily hacked by a computer (i.e. not a name, and not a word in the dictionary). Ideally it should be something with letters and numbers. Initials and a date of birth work well, e.g. DaS180975 or something like that. Even better, intersperse the letters and numbers: D18a09S75.

That should put a stop to both the hacking and the unauthorised use of your contacts list. Give it a couple of weeks before you restore your contacts.

If that still doesn't fix it, you might need to get a new email account. With Gmail you can import email from a previous account, so that might be worth considering.

Good luck!

I am not receiving any e-mail, senders say I have


Be sure to check to see what email address you used in your CraigsList AD.

If it is not a yahoo email account, that you have used at CraigsList, send emails to that address from other accounts and check to see if u got the mail. If u got the mail then u're good to go and well ok, customers are mistaken.

If you did not use a yahoo account in your AD for response emails then these senders are mistaken (perhaps).

If you do have a yahoo address associated with that AD then do the following:

1. Log into a different email account (from another provider) and send yourself an email at that yahoo account. Actually get a few people u know to send email also)

2. Log into your yahoo account and see if u were able to receive that email/s. If u are able to get the email from that other account then the problem is not with the yahoo account.
