    Default Any Ideas

    Oh my goodness, I could really use a computer geek hubby or friend right now.

    this past week, I have been receiving hundreds a day of these messages that say delivery failure the message you have send cannot be delivered, but the thing is I am not the one sending these messages. I have no idea who the recipients are that the message is being sent to. I have called Time Warner 3 times and they cannot help me, they say that other than setting email rules there really is no way to stop these messages. I find that hard to believe. I have been attached to this email address for years and I would really hate to have to change it. it is driving me insane. The last time I looked I had 1616 of these undeliverable messages in my inbox. I have run a virus scan which came back as no issues, I have changed my password twice. I have reported it as spam to roadrunner.com. I just don't know what else to do. Any ideas???

    Sounds like someone is spoofing your e-mail.
    Or, you've been hacked.

    I know exactly when it happened, I went on to dropbox and ever since then this mess started. It really sucks. I am so upset that I will probably have to change my email.

    i am so sorry!! this happened to me i changed my password it happened again right after... then i changed it again, logged out and disconnected from the internet for a bit and then it went away..it seemed maybe they were in it when i changed my password the first time..so i thought if i disconnected they would go find another computer email to mess with so far it has worked..i hope you find a solution!!

    Have you tried to clear your cookies? I would recommend to do restart after that.

    oh scary! But it does sound like they are spoofing your email... I would disconnect from the internet for a while and then change your password.
