You will need to change your password. Someone is accessing your account and sending spam. I highly recommend that you make the password more complex but easy for you to remember.

This seems to be an issue with all of these free email programs it has nothing to do with the mail server someone is bulk mailing junk and got a hold of your email address and is using it for bulk mailings. Go in and create a new email account and password completely different from the old one and start fresh. I hope this assisted you this is what I do when it happens. I also stay away from free email programs and use the email that I receive from my IP, do not forget to vote for me thanks for using FixYa! John

How can I stop an unknown person using my hotmail account to send spoofing emails to my contacts

It sounds like one of two things. You either have a virus or someone hacked your account. If you're certain you are virus free then just change your login password to you hotmail account.

My computer keeps "auto-adding" contacts I already have. how can I stop this?

If you use Windows Live Mail to manage your Hotmail account, any email addresses that you reply to at least three times are automatically stored in your Address Book as frequent contacts. If this function is cluttering your contacts list and you want to deactivate it, you can do so through Windows Live Mail's Options dialog.

Open Windows Live Mail and click the "Show Menu" button, then "Options." Select the "Send" tab in the Options dialog box that appears. Uncheck the box next to "Automatically put people I reply to in my address book after the third reply" and click "OK."

Somebody or something is sending Email from my Hotmail-Account. Since it is Spam I don't like that. the messages are saved in my "sent-messages folder" but they are forwarded messages to many of...

It sounds like you can still login to your account, have you tried resetting the password when you are logged into the hotmail account? Preferably to something with some upper case characters and numbers in it?

If someone currently has access that should stop them logging in again.
