virus email being sent out from my email address to all my contacts

Question: virus email being sent out from my email address to all my contacts

Hi everyone. A few days ago I got a mailerdamon failure notice. I looked and it was a link sent out to a bunch of my contacts....I've changed my password about 4 times, and it just happened again today. I'm changing my password from another computer btw. When I look in my sent folder, it doesn't have the virus email as one that's been sent. I just downloaded Avira Antivirus, and it says its blocking a site from connecting to my computer, it scanned and found two GEN/pwd.zip virus and quarantined them. I'm also getting a DEP error on IE when I try to get on the net.

Worth noting, the past few days I was on another forum do to my computer trying to connect to "pinball corp". I was using malwarebytes at that time, which I've since uninstalled because Avira says it might conflict with it. We went through all the malware removal procedures, and when I tried to run TFC.exe, my computer froze. So I hardbooted it. When it came back on I couldn't run any programs, and my wireless network driver was uninstalled. I was able to delete a lot of programs from my startup folder that I wasn't using, and when I restarted I could run programs again.

Any help is greatly appreciated!

Preferred Solution: virus email being sent out from my email address to all my contacts

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm running Windows 10 mobile plus latest updates on a Lumia 950.
My Hotmail email account wasn't syncing correctly so I removed it from the phone, restarted the phone then added it again.
It appears to have added the Microsoft Account OK but I am not getting email, contacts or calendar - can anyone help? Is there anything else I need to do?

Hi guys,
 
'Boopme' had me run MiniToolBox and he wrote that he found "errors and other issues" and he bumped me to this thread.
 
Norton now seems to be removed and the restart was successful w/ out a restore.
 
This is what I wrote in under the from "Am I infected?" thread;
 
 

Been having problems with my laptop running Vista Home premium svc pack2.
One day, a month ago, Norton was not updating properly. Upon the next boot-up windows would not start and I was forced to restart in safe mode with a system restore. This was successful but Norton Security Suite was still not updating properly.
Since then, on a few occasions, I have attempted to uninstall Norton without success thru the program uninstaler. Norton is unresponsive. I even got the Norton rep. to do a remote deletion of all registry files of Norton. But they all returned after the reboot of my PC because windows would not open and I had to start-up thru system restore.
Since then my yahoo email been hacked and spam sent to the contacts of my address book.
I know I got something but I don't know what.. Can anyone take a stab at what I might need to do?
Thanks,
Brian

I have an att.net email account which is now serviced by Yahoo. Today a spam message originated from my account and was sent to everyone on my contacts list. "xmas" was in the subject line and the content was a web address which opens to a website apparently selling medications from Canada. Webroot antivirus has not detected any virus or malware on my computer. What should I do? Do I need to close the att.net email account?

One email address in my contacts disappeared. It does not pop out automatically anymore when I spell the first letter.

I checked in my red list if I had misplaced it but this address was not there either.

I still can write to this person and she will receive my emails. However I do not receive her emails anymore.
I tried to trick the system by emailing her through the same account with a second account I put with the
new system since Microsoft suppressed the links accouts. Same thing: she will receive my email but I do not receive
hers.

Can anyone help me to fix this problem.
Thanks a lot.

This is very embarassing, as it's an ad for "male" pills and some of these people are older family members that don't understand how this can happen. I understand the spoofing and using my email address to cover up the real address, but how do they get all my email contacts? Will this happen again? Is there anything I can do about it?

Hello there!
 
First of all, MAJOR THANK YOU'S and apologies... you've got a total IT idiot here in this post. I'm telling you, I'm really clueless. 
 
Secondly, the reason for my post! I must have clicked on something in an email (I KNOW, I KNOW! Wrong move, right?!) that captured/hijacked/compromised my email address. For the past several days I've been getting "postmaster delivery notification-delivery has failed" bouncebacks--- going right into my Junk Mail folder. I didn't think much of it... until Verizon suspended my email account this morning for MISUSE. LITTLE OL' ME??? Misuse?? Yup. And I can tell they are FULL OF JUNK because they are trying to sell off-label Viagra and Cialis (BTW, do people really believe that these meds are the real thing? You get what you pay for, people!! A four-hour erection may be the least of your worries! Sorry... I got off topic... )
 
Anyway, it has probably happened like 125-150 times in the past several days. I have gone in and changed my password (it's SUPER STRONG NOW!) and my security questions, but from what I've read there is probably still something sitting on my computer that will make this happen again. If you can help, I would be so grateful, and even if you can't, thanks for trying! --- Jenn

I have 1300 Outlook 2007 contacts, some without Emails, some with good Emails and doubtless some with out-of-date Emails. Is there an easy way to notify all the good Email address of my new Email address? I tried mass mailing all the A's and the error message reads..."550 (message) does not conform to RFC2822 standard." No idea what that means.

Any suggestions? And thanks as always...you guys are great!
 

Answer:Mass Email to contacts re: address change?

My guess is that some of the email address contain invalid characters somewhere in them or your ISP has some type of anti-spam procedure that prevents you from emailing more than a certain number of people at a time. I would start by exporting your list of contacts to an Excel file and then scroll through them looking for invalid characters or extra leading or trailing spaces.

Regards,
Rollin

A friend of mine recently started getting a lot of emails from people on her contact list saying that they look like spam. They asked her if she sent these emails and of course, she didn't. She has changed her password but the problem persists. She has run a number of different scans and that hasn't solved the problem either. Is there anything that can be done?

Answer:A friend's email address is on multiple emails to contacts

If her contact list has been hacked, it can't be undone.  If they have the contact list, changing the password will not change anything.  Sounds like she needs to lock down her phone better.  She needs to be more careful, and check all her privacy settings.  Have her create a new email and let her contacts know.  People don't realize that they are granting the world access to their personal information with these phones.  Google+, Facebook, instagram, Pinterest, etc.... they all access ALL your personal info by default, and makes it simple for others to gain access.

I was just in my hotmail account forwarding an e-mail, when I clicked the "To:" button in order to add multiple contacts. Then I noticed something unusual. Firstly, one e-mail address was listed who I had previously blocked and deleted. Secondly, under the "name" of this address was not listed the actual name of the unwanted individual, but my own name which I go by for all my e-mail accounts.

I came out of the e-mail and when to my Contacts list but the blocked/deleted address bearing (weirdly) my own name was nowhere to be found.

I'm really worried and scared now, as this person may have been stalking me online - back in January whilst online I was suddenly told that I had "logged in on another computer", when I had not, and when I logged back in and changed my password, under my Profile, all the information such as my date of birth, location, etc, had been changed to read this guy's information. I'm worried that this contact who only showed up when I was trying to forwards an e-mail and nowhere in my contact list, and for some weird reason listed as my own name, is some sort of evidence that I am still being hacked. Back when I knew this guy he did claim to know people who could hack forums, e-mail accounts, and could really mess them up.

HELP!

Answer:Can I transfer Email Contacts from Outlook 2007 to W-10 Default Email

Dealing with different E-Mail clients [installed] and online/Webmail has become one of the most frustrating issues of the last few years.

Outlook Express was discontinued, last came with Windows XP. Windows Vista had Mail and Windows 7 had no built-in E-Mail Client. With Outlook Express the contacts were in the Windows Address Book and the file name was some_name.wab, whatever the user set the E-Mail up as. Outlook Express did not use the 2003 and 2007 version titles, that was with Microsoft Outlook, part of Microsoft Office which used different storage techniques. Generally both types could Export contacts as .csv files which could be used in other programs or even as a spreadsheet in such a program as Excel, QuattroPro, etc. Win7 and newer have a Contacts listing in C:\Users\user-name that also can be exported.

Hi Majorgeeks!

I know I'm not alone with this problem. All of the contacts in my laptop got an email from "me" with a link (that can't even be opened...). It's happened 3 times, the first and second about 1 month ago, then I DLed and ran another antivirus above the one I have, and as it found some problems, I deleted those files and was reassured. However there was another spam which was sent out from my address too all contacts 2 days ago.
So I followed the instructions in the Read & Run page and some of the programs found some warnings indeed. So I would like to send you the logs now. Could you please check them and tell me if my laptop is safe now? Should I be afraid that someone has all my contacts and can restart this action or if the virus is deleted, it won't happen again?
I've got Windows 7, 64 bit, so I didn't run the RootRepeal but all the others. I attach the 4 logs, made yesterday.
As for the softwares, what should I do with them? Should I delete / uninstall Combofix, MGtools, SuperA.S., Malwarebytes? Also since I saved all those programs to my desktop, now I've got 2 icons "desktop.ini" on the desktop too. If I click on them to delete, the computer says "Are you sure you want to delete this? If you do, Windows or other programs might not work right after that." So shall I just put them somewhere else or can I delete them?

I hope you've got good news for me, that everything is ... Read more

Answer:Email virus sent to all contacts

Now let's use ComboFix to remove a bunch of malware files.

* Make sure that combofix.exe that you downloaded while doing the READ & RUN ME is on your Desktop but Do not run it!
If it is not on your Desktop, the below will not work.
* Also make sure you have shut down all protection software (antivirus, antispyware...etc) or they may get in the way of allowing ComboFix to run properly.
* If ComboFix tells you it needs to update to a new version, make sure you allow it to update.
* Open Notepad and copy/paste the text in the below code box into it (make sure you scroll all the way down in the code box to get all lines selected ):

hi

i have recently (in the last few days) been receiving spam type emails advertising some sort of pharmeceutical company, i have no idea how they would have my email, or really whats going on.

it has now progressed to sending everyone in my contact list an email telling them to check out a website.

i really want to know if i can even get rid of this or weather i have to start a new email account? i use hotmail, and being an internet based email, im guessing there isnt much i can do to get rid of it.

any help would be greatly appreciated.
if any more information is needed, just ask, ill be happy to do anything that might get rid of this.

cheers

My mother's gmail account seems to have contracted a virus that sends an email with the subject line '+hi+' to everyone in the contacts book and with the url 'http://sites.google.com/site/s3895yhf56eydya/aovq7a' in the message body. The site appears to be Canadian and is selling vyagra.

I don't think it's likely to have done any harm to the computer itself, and we noticed the problem when she received several failed message emails. The machine we noticed the problem was a mac so I guess that makes it even less likely the virus is affecting the actual computer but obviously it's not great for my Mum to be sending everyone she knows links to vyagra sites and also I don't know if the emails themselves contain the virus and would infect the recipients.

Is it possible to disinfect the account or does one just have to start over with a new one. That would be hugely inconvenient given how long my mother has used this account.

Hi Everyone,

I have to backup the emails and contacts (email addresses primarily) from several computers. The challenge I am facing is that a mixture of email clients are on the computers that I need to backup. The clients that I am backing up are as follows;

Outlook Express
Outlook XP
Outlook 2007
Windows Mail
Windows Live Mail

I am confident that I have all of the emails backed up, however I am uncertain of where contacts (email addresses) are stored in the above.

Any help with locating the contacts files for the above email clients will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

In the last 2 weeks a couple emails have been sent out by my Yahoo email address to my entire contact lists containing different links which are probably viruses or some other harmful info. These do seem to be coming from my computer as the messages are not showing up in my sent folder. However, I am trying to make sure it is not something on my end.

My OS is Vista home and I mostly use Firefox 3.0 for browsing. I also run AVG 1 time a week and it has picked up 2 potential trojans in the last 2 weeks.

I have had to reinstall pc due to it going at a crawl!!

After installing Outlook 2002, I can not get Outlook to auto fill the email address field when I start to type an email address in it.

The address book is there and in tacked after copying the outlook.pst file back to its original location after install.

How do I get Outlook to autofill?

Also when I click the 'TO' button in the new email window, it says that there is no address book!
but when I click the address book icon in the main Outlook window there are email address there?!

Any ideas how I can get this to work correctly again.

Answer:reinstalled pc, now create email in Outlook 2002 does not auto fill email address like before

When you did the re-install, did you erase/format the hard drive before the re-install? If you did and did not save the Outlook auto fill file, then the all the auto fills you had are gone. Did you import the pst file into outlook?

* temporarily or permanently disabling the suggestion popup
* excluding local pages and pages containing search results
* swapping the address and title columns on the suggestion popup

Hello.
I've just found a pst file with all my old email. I'd like to put them back on the server (hotmail) but before doing that I've seen that some of them were not recived (or sent) to my actual address (@hotmail.com) but to an old one (@infinito.it). So I was thinking to export them from outlook 2013 to CSV, modify that address into the new one and then import them back on outlook 2013. The problem is that when I export them to CSV, in that file they don't have the date (received or sent) and so when I get them back on outlook 2013 they miss that info.
Can anyone help me doing this? I've been told that VBA macro should be useful for this, but having a look in it I have no idea of what I sould do.
Ah, instead of outlook 2013 I can also use thunderbird (45.3.0) if it's easier with it, but then I'd have to convert that pst file.
Thanks!

Hi

Is there some way of moving all messages from my hotmail account to another email address? So when I emails are sent to my hotmail address they are then sent to my other email address, (then deleted from hotmail).
Is there a program that can sit on the desktop that is always checking hotmail, and when a email is recieved it is then sent to another email address? (this address is not a hotmail address).

Any possibilities??
 

Answer:Make all email that is recieved from my hotmail account go to another email address.

if you have outlook express linked to your hotmail account you can run a rule on the mail - not sure if it works on webmail cia outlook/outlook express

I have a word document that includes a form the user must fill in. I want to create a button that will do all of the following:
1. Update all fields
2. Attach the updated word document to an email
3. Enter an address I have stored in the macro into the To field of the email.

I have one module which does the first part:

For Each oStory In ActiveDocument.StoryRanges
oStory.Fields.Update
If oStory.StoryType <> wdMainTextStory Then
While Not (oStory.NextStoryRange Is Nothing)
Set oStory = oStory.NextStoryRange
oStory.Fields.Update

End If
Next oStory
Set oStory = Nothing
End Sub

I found that if I add this to the before End Sub it attaches the updated Word document to an email:
Application.Options.SendMailAttach = True 'Or False
ActiveDocument.SendMail

However, I can't figure out how have it put a specific address into the To field of the document.

So I tried another tact. I have the email address as a hyperlink in the document, and set a bookmark at the hyperlink. Then I created a module that will go to the bookmark and open the hyperlink. However, this will not add the document as an attachment:

Its getting pretty old, it seems every two years or so a company is bought out and you have to switch your ending email address to that provider,

mediaone.net
attbi.com
comcast.net
verizon.net
and now the latest will be myfairpoint.net, add to that a couple more in the list above i forgot the endings of its quite the list for about 8yrs worth.

Gmail? Yahoo? anything else worth considering as a permanent email address?
 

Answer:Best free email to use?...Im sick of companies being bought = new email address

I'd say Gmail. Otherwise try Graffiti.net. I've had an account with them for about 4 years, and even if I'm inactive for a couple of months, I go back and it's still there.

When I got BellSouth DSL years ago I had Outlook email account set up with BellSouth as outgoing and old domain as incoming so I could keep my email address from another domain. It worked fine until a year or so ago I had to add another account just for BellSouth and that worked fine.

Within last few weeks emails from my email address (old domain) would not send. I've been through it with ATT tech several times to no avail.

It seems that ATT has trapped me out and does not want me to be able to keep my old email.

There's bound to be a way to set up my email accounts so my outgoing email from my other ISP provider will send through BellSouth without changing my very old and reliable email address.

Also, I recently have acquired my own domain name and I fear emails from that email address will suffer the same fate.

I hope this is not too long, but PLEASE HELP if you can.
 

Answer:Can't send email using different domain in email address BellSouth trapped me out...

If your BellSouth e-mail service is provided by Yahoo, then you probably need to go through a registration and authentication process for each e-mail address you want to send through a non BellSouth/Yahoo mail server. At least that is what I had to go through as an SBC/ATT DSL customer. They claim that they do the blocking to prevent from originating from users within their network.

The trick is to put a TO or FROM in the search field and hit TEST SEARCH, instead of applying the filter. Then delete what is in the search results. Now I don't know of a way to do this by account, but as long as you know the recipient or sender address (which would be your old email), then it should work fine. In your case, just put the sender address as your old email account and test the search, it should pull up all the email for you to delete

Cheers

Just happened recently, so I'm not sure if changing the password helped. still receiving this messages however they were sent before the time i changed my password.

if it so happens that the emails are continued to be sent, do I have malware? please help.

Answer:Can malware send email from your internet email address?

Sounds like a spammer got your email address and is spoofing the return to or from address using yours instead.It could also be that someone is infected and their computer had you email address.Here's an example of headers shown in real emailReturn-Path: <[email protected]>Received: from inaamta17.mail.tds.net ([216.170.230.187]) by inmta16.mail.tds.net (InterMail vM.7.08.03.00 201-2186-126-20070710) with ESMTP id <[email protected]net> for <[email protected]>; Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:51:51 -0600Received: from mta705.email.newegg.com ([38.119.56.165]) by inaamta17.mail.tds.net (InterMail vG.3.00.02.00 201-2196-120-20070322) with SMTP id <[email protected]egg.com> for <[email protected]>; Thu, 26 Feb 2009 07:51:51 -0600

hello:
 
i have been trying to fix my email/outlook spam issue.  emails are going out WITH my actual email address, sending emails to people in my contacts, etc.
I also have been getting a ton of spam emails myself.
 
I use:
 
-Windows 7 Pro
-64 Bit
-Outlook 2010
-I have our own domain name email address, that is hosted by Frontier
 
Odd thing:  I changed my password for my email, but my outlook kept sending/receiving with the old password.
When I tried to update  the new password in outlook (which I verified by using the webmail versus outlook), it would not accept it.
 
Thank you for any help you can provide.

I recently changed to comcast cable internet. I can send and receive mail at my earthlink.net email. However, I cannot send to someone at an "rcullen.com" email address. I have NEVER had this problem with this domain.

I went over all settiings with comcast and they are correct.

Does anyone know how to UNBLOCK an email address from not being able to be sent to? Or, is there a setting or workaround so that i can send from comcast to the rcullen.com email address?

Comcast has not told me it is blocked, but I can think of no other reason and I've read that they randomly block TONS of email domains for "spam" purposes.

Anyone else have a solution to this? Thanks!

Hi all,

I have a problem, a client had a setup with another mailserver (Mdaemon), that allowed him to do that.
Anyone knows how to do the same in Exchange? I thought about distribution lists, but I don't think it will work to have a dist. list called [email protected], with the members joe, martin and peter. You can't have an email address with the same name as a distribution list right?

How would you solve this?

Thanks!
 

Answer:How to forward all the email sent to an email address to 2 other (Exchange 2003)?

You could have [email protected] go to joe, martin, and peter and you can call it [email protected] if you like.

If you are talking about Joe having the e-mail address [email protected] and he wants e-mails to go to martin and peter as well, then you can do that, but it would work best by using Outlook to create the server side rule. Though I have a few issues with that, in that if Joe gets something non-work related it will go to the other two as well.

Also you could create [email protected] if Joe's e-mail address is [email protected] or [email protected] or [email protected], or [email protected]

Is there any web services give that service for free ? or we have to send script or file to target Laptop ? This metoe is important to find someone who missing ?Thank You

Answer:Email IP address from user login to spesific others email

This would be private information that Yahoo/Gmail would have. Probably the only legal way to do it would be to get them involved. Even then, the ip address may or may not assist you in location as that information on the particular ip address may also be behind another services system. If its a criminal matter, I would recommend going through proper authorities.mike

For what it is worth, I backup My Thunderbird and Firefox with MozBackup http://download.cnet.com/MozBackup/3000-2242_4-10260383.htmlAs great as it is to have tools such as Firefox and Thunderbird, backing them up can be a tedious process. MozBackup is a tiny program that makes saving and restoring all your bookmarks, extensions, and other personal settings a streamlined and stress-free experience.The program works with Firefox, Thunderbird, SeaMonkey, and Netscape on Windows platforms. It doesn't work with Firefox Portable, Sunbird, Songbird, or Flock, but for standard Windows iterations of the programs in the Mozilla suite, it's almost silly to not use this program.Close the program you want to back up, then runI used MozBackup recently to move all my Thunderbird email and settings and Firefox favorites etc. from one computer to another. No problems.It seems to me that your plan is sound, Import into Thunderbird, Backup, install Thunderbird on new computer and restore everything.Did I mention you can you can check or uncheck what you want and not backup what you don't want to backup.Hope this helpsRoger

Hello! I'm a (very) long time lurker of this site but recently decided to join. I've had my Windows 8.1 Toshiba Satellite laptop for a bit over a month. About 2 weeks into ownership I started receiving spam emails in my msn account, the one I use to sign into the laptop. These mails are sometimes from me, although I have checked my sent mail and there isn't anything there I haven't personally sent. I signed into a different email account and that one was spammed too, until I signed out.
 
I access the internet from my phone and my desktop pc (Windows 7). I wasn't sure where the issue was coming from so I turned off the desktop but the problem persisted. I did a system restore on the I ran AntiMalwarebytes, CCleaner, and my antivirus programs which all came back clean, but the problem is still here.
 
I've factory restored three times, completely reformatted the drive twice and I still have the problem. I installed Windows 10 Preview but I didn't receive any spam for the hours I had it running. I reinstalled my OEM version of 8.1 and within 2 hours the spam emails started. The last time, I hadn't even installed my firewall and antivirus program when the spam email started.

I think I have asked this before. I am getting so much spam email im sick of deleting it all! These fat heads who send it to me I wish they would stop.

Some of the emails say "Your date has been approved with Jenn" Then will say my husband is away for a week so if the first date goes well we will try another.

Come talk to jean and see her body at bla bla website.

I get so many others too. Partsolver and towel direct?? I now have between my two computers almost 200 unread of spam emails and some thats not spam. It takes forver to go through and delete them all.

Ive been told not to hit unsubscribe but sometimes it helps. They say then they know your email is valid. Well they must or they would cease to email me so whats it going to matter to unsubscribe?

Ive even tried to "bounce to sender" but nothing works! Is there any way to block emails from these people? Or not allow them on my server? A auto bounce before they even come on my pc?

Maybe I should just ask my ISP I dont know. I thought id ask one last time.

Answer:I get lots of spam email to my email address

There are usually two places where SPAM filtres can be effective. The most obvious is at your ISP's Mailbox; because how ISPs handle the spam filter vary, I can give no explicit instructions, although their on-line help section generally will provide those.
The second place is at your Email Client on your computer. FF/Mozilla both include teachable Spam filters that you can use to segregate legitimate mail from the gunk.

The best place to stop SPAM is to be extremely careful about your Email Address. It would be a wise step to have one Email Address for friends, family, and trusted people, and a "throwaway" Email address (s) for on-line registrations, Ebay, or other public places. Once these addresses become, as they will, clogged with SPAM, you can simply delete them and create new addresses, beginning the process over again.

Regards,
John

In our village in Spain, we have a very dodgy wireless internet access system, run by a company called NijarNet that is very difficult to communicate with - partly a language problem and partly because their customer service is dreadful. I have 13 clients with accounts here (I'm a management agent), and I manage these for them - they are all either wifi or wimax which pick up the signal from various antennae in the area. One such client was having no problem until something called Spamcop blocked his emails. Since then, he is unable to send emails from his 02 account, although he can send from his gmail account with no problem. He can receive on both accounts. O2 says it's not their problem, but that I must talk to the provider (which I have tried to do but they deny it's their problem and can't/won't give any advice on what the problem might be). I reckon it's something fairly simple that I might be able to sort myself, maybe a setting on the router? Can you offer any advice?

I'm helping a friend with her computer. Here are the 2 issues.

1) The email app in Windows 8.1 on her laptop just stopped working. She can no longer send or receive emails at all from any of her accounts. She says that she believes it has happened before maybe even a couple times a month.

2) This may or may not be related - The main email address in the app is her work email address from an old job. Whether it's related or not, she wants to undo that and have her primary email address to login or whatnot. She has since deleted all of her other email addresses from the app.

Hopefully others have had this issue and able to assist.

Hi guys heres one that is driving me nuts.
an email account is set up with an isp here , its btconnect.com
so the email is say [email protected]
now joe has two email aliases on his account e.g.

[email protected]
and
[email protected]

now when joe accesses his account through outlook it obviously checks the btconnect account and sends the mail to the correct alias, but it cant seem to do it.
what happens is , it logs on checks one alias then the server errors whilst checking the other as it is still logged on i assume to the main btconnect mail account and so errors out

e.g [email protected] works and roofing.co.uk errors out
i would like to find a way to check flooring first and roofing after but cant figure it out
someone suggested using identities in outlook express but isnt outlook the better program and surely there is some kind of feature for this problem

usually after it gets its bearings it is then happy and says send receive complete but after a couple of tries and leaving an error message at the bottom of the screen
0x800cc0f
as it is trying to check the two accounts on the same email address at the same time.
any ideas anyone
i am even willing to try thunderbird instead
just the managers like the calender etc in outlook
 

Answer:Outlook Using 2 email aliases on one email address

still no ideas on this one.
maybe using rules in outlook would help.
I could just check mail from the BT account
e.g. [email protected] and filter the mail for the aliases into the corresponding mail box, but how then if a mail is written in outlook could it be send from the correct account.
e.g [email protected] or [email protected] rather than the mail appearing as though it was sent from [email protected] , wow outlook is confusing stuff lol.

this approach would really work and if there are any other issues.

As you may know, when/if a worm virus gets into your computer it heads
straight for your email address book and sends it's self to everyone in
there, thus infecting all your friends and associates.

This trick will not keep the virus from getting into your computer.
However, it will stop it from using your address book to spread further,
and it will alert you to the fact that the worm has gotten into your system.

Here is what you do:

First: Open your address book and click on "new contact" or "new person"
just as you would do if you were adding a new friend to your list of
email addresses.

Second: In the window where you would type your friend's FIRST Name,
type in !000 (that's an exclamation mark followed by 3 zeros). In the
window below where it prompts
you to enter the new Email address, type in Worm Alert.

Third: Then complete everything by clicking add, enter, OK, etc.

Now, here is what you have done and why it works:

The "name" !000 will be placed at the top of your Address book as entry
#1.This will be where the worm will start its effort to send itself to
all of your friends.

But when it tries to send itself to !000, it will be Undeliverable

I have checked your forum and found something similar but the support you provided was specific to the PC and I don't want to follow the same steps and make some ireversable damages.
Please HELP!! This is urgent! I have tried to fix this for months and got few complaints from the people receiving the emails I am not sending purposely!

Details enclosed in the email sent to tech guys support!

I started receiving emails from a few friends this morning asking me if I indeed send out an email titled "Secure shopping" from my yahoo mail address recommending them to shop at a website (www).ushopcn.com I first thought it went to a few email addresses (mostly obsolete since I deliberately do not use my yahoo email much). But later in the day I received the copy of this email and I could clearly see that it did go out to a lot more email addresses than I thought and I now suspect to all of them in my yahoo address book. I sent out a short email to most who have received it apologizing profusely! (not from yahoo mail of course!). I then noticed that my address book in yahoo mail is wiped out. Strangely, the email showed up just a few times in my Sent Folder (and only showing that it went to ONE email at a time...when, from my friends' forwarded emails back to me. it was obvious that it did go to MANY at the same time!).

I have run Spybot S&D and mbam...I am clean they tell me. I have deleted most of the emails in my Yahoo Mail folders. I have not attempted to send out a new email from Yahoo Mail. Everything else appears to be functioning properly, including my Outlook mail and GMail accounts where I do most of my email stuff.

I am now paranoid...What else can I do? I would appreciate any help from the experts here, thanks!

Here is the text of the stupid email that was sent:

Answer:Yahoo mail sent a phishing email to all my contacts and then wiped out ALL my contacts!

my hotmail address had the same problem. recently i went to set it up to send auto replies as i was going away, and found the same email message copied in there ready to send again.

i was advised to change my password for my email to something which was capitals&lower key + numbers. Scan using malware and avira. didnt find anything, and had no problems since.

i'm by no means an expert - this is the advice i was given by someone who knew what they were talking about!

Hey guys, I know most of you probably get emails sent to you with random words and attachments on them that are obviously viruses. I got one today that creeped me out, it made sense and it was sent from "[email protected]". I didn't save the attachment or open it, I just though it was weird a virus scammer would pick that adress. And if it wasn't fake, then keith from hardocp has a virus thats sending out emails.
 

Answer:Check out this virus attempt from a @hardocp fake email address!

Most likely, someone who has both you and a "[email protected]" in their address book has a virus.

To me, this is the greatest success as such that that type of virus has had. Innocent people getting blamed for things just because the return path on emails has been set to their email address. I've seen it cause a lot of friction over the years, yet no one seems to have worked out the address is spoofed.

So... by all means lynch keith... but realise he's probably got nothing at all to do with it and it's a third party with an infected system

My email address has been compromised by a spam bot. Computer is also acting very slow. AVG scans showing nothing, although I feel certain there is some sort of Malware on this computer.

All my contacts within my Yahoo Email Address Book are getting a bogus email with either no title or just a name in the title and then just a link in the body of the email that usually contains the word viagra or the word "love" or "lo.ve" etc in the link. I've downloaded antivirus programs inluding MS Shield and Norton Antivirus and they often find a Trojan or other files that they clean up but after a few days I get emails from my friends saying they are getting spam/virus email from me again.

My friend's email contacts are receiving email from her address but she did not send them. Most of these emails contain only links. She has contacted McAfee, they checked her computer, and assure her that she is virus free. Has anyone had any experience with this? Thanks!

Answer:unauthorized email being sent from email address

Clark,

Remove McAfee, it is horrible. But this is probably just experience talking. However, people don't need a virus to have access to your email. Change the password!

Hello!
I've recently switched from AOL to an internet provider and had everything set up for me by someone else who is more computer savvy than I. However, now when I email someone it gives them my real name and not my email address as an identity. Not only is it extremely maddening to always have to remember to include a typed email address in my emails but I find it disturbing that every Tom, Dick, and Harry is privy to my real name without my choosing it. My question is "How do you change what Mirosoft Internet Explorer lists as the user name/identity for outgoing email messages?" I use whatever Internet Explorer comes with Windows 98. I appreciate whatever help you can provide. Thanks! Many kudos to all those who responded, my problem is solved so I can remain mysterious to all those I email! You guys are great! -Jamie
 

Answer:email using real name, not email address!

Bring up the email program which should be OutlookExpress. Once OutlookExpress is on the screen, click on Tools>Accounts. Now single left click on the email account that you want to change to highlight it and then click on Properties. Now in box labeled "Name", change it to what you want displayed to the receiver of the email and click on Apply. Then click on OK and then click on Close. Your done.

I was in the Slow Ring for quite awhile (more than one year), until one of the latest updates brought up an issue: in Outlook, the senders name (my name) was replaced by my email address, and I couldn't find a way to fix it (uninstalled Outlook, reinstalled Outlook, deleted account, setup account, everything I could think about). This happens only with my Gmail accounts, not with my Exchange or Live accounts.
Since I use mainly my Gmail address, as pretty much everyone -and I don't want to argue if indeed everyone or not, it's not the point-, I got out of the slow ring and went with stable releases.
Since three releases ago, the issue came again, in stable releases. It's been two months and still it hasn't been fixed.
Does anybody know a way to solve this? I'm seriously thinking of giving up and going back to Android. My phone updated last night, and the issue is still there.
Phone: Lumia 735
OS version: 10.0.14393.321

Thanks everyone!

Hello All,

I recently clicked on a Google Images picture and AVG warned it had a virus. I clicked out, ran AVG, and it said everything was clean. Recently, however, my G Mail account was compromised. Someone from a Chinese IP address logged onto the account, and then sent emails to a Chinese website to my contact list. I changed my password, but I wasn't sure if it was a virus or if my email was compromised in some other way. Yesterday, I emailed a PowerPoint presentation to a professor, which he said came up as a virus. Now when I try to open my own attachment, a browser page filled with odd text shows up. If it matters, the presentation was sent through my university's .edu account, not the G Mail. I use Windows 7.

AVG is still showing the computer is clean, but given the set of circumstances, it seems I may be infected. Thank you for your self.

I have been unable to insert an address from my Yahoo email address book for some time now and I have decided to ask for help.

All I am doing is opening Yahoo mail and trying to compose a new email to send to someone who is already in my contacts. When I click "to:" or "insert address" my address book shows up. But when I place a check mark and try to "insert checked contacts" I go to this address on a blank page: http://us.mc1612.mail.yahoo.com/mc/kioskHandler

I see that this has been asked before but no one had replied and I can't find the answer doing a search.

Can anyone help?

Answer:Solved: Yahoo email unable to insert address from address book

Concerning my post above: I turned on my older XP computer and I had no problem with inserting an address from the Yahoo! address book.

I compared all my settings in both computers and noticed that I had different settings relating to how pop-ups are handled. XP reminded me that the address book takes the form of a pop-up. On my Vista I had pop-ups opening up (?) in a webpage. That is the page which came up blank. After I have corrected the settings, I no longer have a problem.

I am using Outlook 2003 and run Windows XP.

When I create a new message I begin typing the name of the recipient and I would like it to match up with an address I have in my Outlook contact list. However, it does not read from there. It only seems to look at addresses that I have already sent to in the past. How can I get it to read from the address book? If I click on "TO" or "CC" it brings up another window with a list of addresses from my contact list. From there I can have it pull from the list. I would like to be able to do it withot the extra step.

Thanks!
 

Answer:Solved: Outlook 2003 dowes not automatically pull address from address book for email

That is how autocomplete works, from used addresses stored in the NK2 file.
This explanation and keyboard shortcut might help you.
Where do Outlook's auto-complete suggestions come from?

I have a situation where someone has 2 email addresses. One of them is now redundant and I have deleted it from the People section. However, when I am set to make a new email to that person and type the first letter of their name, in the pop up window (that you can click on) their old email address still appears.
How do I delete this from that list? Can find no way to do so.

Answer:Outlook Email - Deleting Wrong Email Entry when starting new email

In new email, start typing the address you want to remove. When you have enough characters for auto complete to show it (sometimes one letter is enough), use DOWN ARROW key on keyboard to select the address in question and press DEL key.

That's it.
