    I have a Yahoo e-mail account, from which, some how e-mail messages (currently harmless) have been sent to people on my contact list. How did this happen? How can I stop it?

    I have received two emails from my daughter's email address but she did not send them. They are ads for a Canadian Drug site with ridiculously low prices and I suspect it is a scam to obtain people's credit card numbers. I received something very similar from another person in my contact list who also did not send it. Please investigate. I will forward the email to you if you will give me an address. Thanks.

    change your password ASAP

    I guess you got hacked email account, try to change your password ASAP and make stong password with combination between : upper and lower cases, signs, letters and numbers as like this:
    *MeRRy@Christ=maS/2010*
    Don't forget also to set password recovery secret question and details.
    Many luck to you.
