    migrating email accounts

    I have two email accounts I would like to migrate to a new MS exchange service host. One is a regular email account on my ISP that I access via outlook (IMAP), and the other is an exchange account on a third party host. Both use the same domain.

    Once I open new exchange account, is it straightforward to migrate? Do I simply open the outlook client I use to access those accounts and "export" each to a pst (and then import those psts to the new account)? Does exporting work for exchange accounts or is it more complicated than that? Is there a better way to migrate?

    And I asked this in another thread (apologies for the duplication), but is microsoft itself a good place to host an exchange account or is there a reason to think that a third party host (e.g. rackspace or godaddy) might provide more dependable or secure service or better customer support?

    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.
