  1. received a threatening email from my own address


    Hi

    I received an email from my own address and it even shows in my sent emails. I threatens that this person has access to my camera and etc and can send videos to my contacts. I changed my password several time and still got the email.

    What should I do?

    :)

    Received email addresses

    In windows 7 are received email showed the email address of the sender. It could then be added to my list of contacts. How is this done with Windows 10? The only solution seems to be sending a reply but still leaving me without the senders address.

    Solution?

    Where is my email/address list

    I have asked this question, where is my email/address list since I received my new computer (windows 10) coming from a windows XP computer. After using Windows XP, which was

    very simple to understand, this Windows 10 is ridiculous....not being able to find my email/address book is very disconcerting as I used the information in that list all of the time.....what is the big secret....any directions I have received are so confusing,
    I've just about give up.....one tech did tell me to go to Yahoo and I should be able to locate my list...in fact I did, but only part of the list was available. Does anyone know of a way to see this list in windows 10.....in plain English please, step by
    step please, I'd sure appreciate it.

    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.
