    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    It is more than likely that your email account was hacked, either by a virus sniffing your password, or just simply hacked.

    Either way, change your password on your email account. Unfortunately the damage by already be done. They already have your contact list and your email address associated with that contact list. There is nothing stopping them from sending out emails using their own SMTP servers to everyone on your contact list and claiming the emails are from your email address. They don't actually have to have access to your yahoo account or even any yahoo server to send emails to people that come from your address.

    Unauthorized Emails from my account?

    Embarrassingly, everyone on my email list received spam originating from my account, which is Yahoo based. A scan with MSE found two trojans, a Java/Rowindal.A and a Downloader:Java/OpenStream.W.

    Are these the source of my unwanted email traffic? Would someone opening this email be infected with the same problems? Could there be more dangerous underlying threats.

    Hell, I have quite a few high dollar clients in my list. I always treat people's addresses like they were unlisted numbers, and don't send frivolous "Hey how are ya" junk. This is mortifying.*Eek! Account Email address editing :eek:

  4. Account Email address editing

    Can I edit the my email address name?

    Hello Mooey,

    Thank you for posting your concern in Microsoft community and welcome to the windows 10 Family.

    From the description provided, I understand that you want to change the email address associated with your Microsoft Account.

    An alias is the best way in this case, to change your email, but keep all your mail. So I suggest you to add an alias, then make the new alias primary. Then you can keep or remove the original alias.

    Follow the below steps.


    • Sign in to
      the Microsoft account website
      .

    • Select Your info.

    • Select Manage your sign-in email or phone number.

    • Select Add email alias.

    • Enter a new email address, and then click Add alias. If the address you request is already taken, you’ll be prompted to enter a different address.

      - or -

      Select Add an existing email address as a Microsoft account alias, enter an existing email address, and then select
      Add alias.

    Ref: Use aliases to add email addresses to your account

    Hope the above information is helpful. If you need further assistance, we would be happy to help you.

    Thank you.
