    Why are there lots of names and addresses that I don't know appearing in my contacts list? I changed my password and deleted the ones I don't know and they are reappearing in there again. Did I get hacked? Is it a server problem? Can someone help?

    It is possible you have a setting turned on which adds addresses automatically as you reply to group/bulk emails? If so, all the recipients may be getting added by the system.

    Send an email to an email address which is definitely NOT in your contacts and see if that address gets added automatically.

    If that confirms it, look in your settings for an 'Add recipients to contacts' settings, or similar.
