Question about Yahoo Mail
Change your password on your mail account. Anyone can put any address in the from range
Posted on Oct 10, 2010
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.
