    Hello,

    There are a couple of possibilities here including that your account has been compromised or that a spammer used your email address as the From: and/or Reply-to: when sending out a batch of spam.

    To rule out having a compromised account please change your password and turn on 2 factor authentication for your Hotmail account.
