    Email Account interface

    In order to setup a new computer one must connect the device to a Microsoft account.

    Let's say the owner keeps the computer for 2 years, never changing the login. They then sell the computer. They wipe the computer and so the buyer can now setup the device to their email. Is it possible for Windows 10 to keep the device connected to the original email account and inadvertently receive the new users emails because the account is still linked?

    Could someone receive someone else's emails from the local email account in the operating system of the device that was created to register the device with Microsoft or dud Microsoft accidentally assign the email address to 2 people?

    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.

  3. email account hacked. please help

    Also may I suggest you change email accounts to one of the following.....


    The reason is they both use "Step two verification". This style of verification means even if a hacker gets your password they cannot log in to your account. You see every time someone try's to log in that hasn't been verified you will get a text or a phone call giving you a final code to log in. Its very easy and simple to setup also. The great thing is once you setup your Email application with a specific "application password" from that account you never have to log in again AND your account is protected from being logged in from foreign entities.

    I like the new outlook personally however Gmail is also damn good. Gmail also has an IP tracker that allows you to see WHERE the account has been logged in from. Anyway let us know if you wanna change over and have any questions. We will be happy to help and welcome to TPU!

    Don't think you can if they were deleted from your email account and are not in your trash folder. Try contacting Yahoo, explain what happened, and see what they can do or suggest you do.
