Question about Yahoo Mail

1 Answer

I think my yahoo mail and messenger accounts have been compromised. I keep getting spam messages from my contacts both on yahoo mail and messenger. There are times when some of my contacts come online but they are not actually the ones. I once started a conversation with a contact on messenger but the response I got was obviously a spam message. My spyware is active so I do not understand why I am still encountering this problem. I would really appreciate it if I can get a prompt and helpful response. Thank you.

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.

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.

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.

Hi. my messenger send some messages from my id that dosnt from me


Your account has been compromised and is now being used to send out spam mail.

Just change your password and your problem should go away.

Just to be safe it may be worth running a virus scan and malware scan on your computer too. Just to eliminate a virus causing the problem.

Hi! I keep getting this message when I try to


1. I think you are getting this message because some of the Yahoo! Mail users has declared your e-mails as "SPAM"!

2. Thats why you are not allowed to send any more mails to anybody!

3. You should contact the Yahoo! support for the solution of this problem!

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.

My email address is abrarhoney35tiger@yahoo.com . Please tell me why my account is blocked?


Your account may be blocked by yahoo for 2 reasons.

1. Your account has been spamming or
2. Your account has been reported for abuse.

If you are not the one doing those spamming or abuse, then your account might got compromised. It is advised that you get a new yahoo account since your blocked yahoo address was already harvested by spammers or spambots and was able to used it to send out abuse or spam. Make sure you secure your new account by using a strong password.
