    Obsolete email connected to MS Account for Windows 10


    I have two different users set up on my Windows 10 laptop. They are both administrators, and both are me. But the first one is connected to an obsolete email attached to its MS Account, and I keep getting annoying messages telling me to fix my MS Account issue on the machine. If I use the other account, I no longer have access to many of the documents that I created on the first account, so that's not a good option.

    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.
