Email Hacked/Blocked/outdated email for code retrieval


New Email
Unfortunately, my email was hacked and used to send spam to all of my contacts. It is now blocked and I cannot access the code needed to verify my account. The email address listed for the code to be emailed to is outdated (job I had five years ago) Now what? If I can't restore my email account, I'd like to at least delete the account. However, I can't even delete the account because I can not sign in!

What kind of account is it? Hotmail? Yahoo? Something else?

Yes, the problem is that the email address they are sending the reset code to is invalid. I can't receive the code if I can't access my expired email address. I realize that I messed up by not updating my backup email address. However, I can't change that fact. I just need to find a solution or at least find a way to delete this account. I am not sure what the hackers still have access to and I do not want people to keep emailing my accont thinking I am receiving their emails. I would email them all, but unfortunately I cannot access my contact list.
