How to stop automated email's being sent from my account...


New Email
I opened up an email the other day and it must have been some junk thing because it was automatically sent onto all my contacts. Then the same thing happened today but I haven't opened ANY emails since that first could that happen? Please can someone tell me how to stop these emails leaving my account involuntary...and they're about stupid stuff too like 'I bought an iPhone off this website...cheapest Ever....' etc etc

Thanks...Crick x

It sounds like you may have been phished and that someone else has access to your account.

Immediately change your password and security question/answers.

Here is the hotmail password reset page : Hotmail Password Reset

If the emails don't stop you can have one of the recipients check the full email headers to see if they are really being sent by you.
