Hotmail sending to random contacts!

Q: Hotmail sending to random contacts!

This problem has occurred several times and has caused me great embarrassment. I click a name from my contacts list, which appears in the "send to" field. The name I select is the only name displayed in that field, and no names are displayed in the CC or BCC fields. I write my email and send it, but when I recieve the hotmail confirmation, it says my email has been sent to my intended receipient, as well as some other random person in the address book (not anyone near the intended person in alphebetical order). One particularly graphic email I sent to my boyfriend was somehow also sent by hotmail to my MOTHER, much to everyone's horror. Why?! Has this happened to anyone else? Can I prevent this in the future??

Preferred Solution: Hotmail sending to random contacts!

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hi. I'm at something of a wit's end. I've had a situation for a bout a week where my Hotmail account has sent multiple emails to various members of my contacts list without my permission. I have changed my password on multiple occasions and am fairly confident that the problem is not one of my account being compromised in the traditional fashion.

I have run multiple Spyware/Malware removal tools to no avail and have Microsoft Security Essentials installed with definitions up-to-date.

Any help would be hugely appreciated.

hello folks

Problem :
My hotmail recently started sending spam and junk mails to all my contacts. I noticed this because my sent folder was full of this spam messages. It has been doing this for past 2 days.

Steps I have taken to try and solve this
I tried changing my Hotmail password, alternative email and secret question ... without any results

Warning my Google Chrome gave me this morning

This is probably not the site you are looking for!
You attempted to reach by151w.bay151.mail.live.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as a248.e.akamai.net. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of by151w.bay151.mail.live.com.
You should not proceed, especially if you have never seen this warning before for this site.
After seeing that warning i suspected that my DNS had been changed by some virus and my sites were being redirected to some shady server. However the result of my ipconfig/all showed that I still have the right DNS on my NIC.

Also some of these spam emails are sent when my PC is turned off sometimes.

Your Help in solving this will be HIGHLY appreciated

Hi,

I logged on to my work email this morning to discover I'd been sent an email from my girlfriends hotmail account. The email had been sent to me and everyone else in her hotmail contacts and all it contained was a brief statement that requested people to visit a website (which was blank). The thing is, the email was sent when I know for a fact my girlfriend wasn't logged onto hotmail and she certainly never sent it or knows anything about it. Does anyone know why this has happened? Or has anyone else come accross this? She only ever accesses her hotmail account at home and no-one else could have used that computer.

Many thanks for any advice!
 

A:Hotmail sending hoax emails to all contacts - Can anyone help?

What is most likely to have happened is that her email address has been "harvested" from an infected computer on which the address was stored (from an incoming email). Or from any public forum or webpage where it may have been posted.

The harvested email has been used by a spammer or virus writer as a "spoofed" :From address, which only looks as if it came from her.

If the email website link was blank, it may have been an error by the perpetrator or the website may have actually contained some nasty script that you have protection against the vulnerability that it was trying to exploit.

There are a large number of permutation on the theme.

Hello, TechSupport Forum

I hope you can resolve my issue where my hotmail is sending my contacts links to follow into spam. I can confirm this because i have added myself to my contacts list and i have recived one from myself. On top of that, my contacts responded back telling me that they are recieving it. I have re-installed windows (not in hopes of repairing the problem, due to actual OS mis-functions)

EDIT: I also do have access to a recovery disk/re installer

Hello. I was alerted to this problem a few days ago when I received the unsendable error message in my hotmail inbox saying the e-mail could not be delivered because the recipient had spam blockers. The message has returned a few times each day from approximately 8 e-mail addresses that I rarely, if ever, use; only one is used every 3-6 months. I immediately ran my norton and spybot sd, both of which I keep updated, and both of which said I had no infections. I've checked my sent e-mails and see that this e-mail, which is titled something like "I played this free game for a few minutes", was only sent to about 12 or 15 people, and since I rarely e-mail them I deleted their addresses, except one. This morning, the sent list for that e-mail included that one e-mail address and one new e-mail address, and I have deleted both from my contacts on hotmail.

A second problem which may be related is that I have been unable to download SP2 since it came out; when I get a message that windows has an update for me, if I click to allow it to install, it always comes back that it could not be installed, the system is unstable, please remove programs. It's happened so many times in the past few years that I ignore most windows downloads. A week ago or so Norton wanted to download its 2007 update, which required both SP2 and The latest Explorer to be installed. I tried again to install SP2, and it was blocked, meaning I could not update Norton. I tried to follow a thread (... Read more

However last night my hotmail account was hacked and a virus email was sent to all my contacts (without my knowing ofcourse). I have since changed my password.

Is this coincidence or are having the windows restore virus and having my account hacked connected? Ried did a great job cleaning my machine but could there have been something left over? Involving a keylogger maybe?

A:Hotmail account sending out spam to my contacts list

Unless you are absolutely certain that the E-mail is actually coming from your computer, it would be more likely that someone else's computer is infected and the malware found your E-mail address there. And too, spammers often mask their stuff as if it came from an E-mail daemon, since most ISPS do not filter that address.

My E-mail address is not blocked. When I send via internet, all is well. I have no other problems sending or recieivng to others.

Any thoughts?

I have office xp...how do I create lists of people to send email to? (so that I can send the same message to many people at once...)

thanks
 

A:sending email to several contacts at once

in outlook try contacts ctrl shift L and then pick contacts to add to your distribution list. Another way is with your contacts window open click file and then new and then distribution list. I have outlook 2000 and am assuming they are the same.

I've almost always used Win Live Mail (me @ msn.com), but was advised this week to switch to Hotmail after my e-mail was hijacked & bogus msgs went to a lot of my contacts (& a few that are not my contacts).

I'm not "comfortable" with Hotmail. WLM is just easier for me to work with, maybe because it seems more like old Outlook Express. Anyway, I'm having trouble navigating within Hotmail. Things seem to change in subtle ways (& sometimes, not so subtle) from session to session or within a session. I'm sure I've clicked the wrong place, but . . .

In Hotmail (Outlook) all my folders are listed on the left. Yesterday(?), my contacts (& I think some other stuff) were listed at the bottom of that list. Maybe I somehow collapsed the contact list & then saw contacts. Today I can't find contacts anywhere. Where are they?

Hello,

I recently discovered that I have been having a problem with my AOL mail. I believe it's just that email, although I also use Outlook Express and Gmail. I started by seeing several dozen bounced emails back in my inbox that I never sent out, then got a few notes from people who said they received sketchy emails from me.

In the past, I've received this type of email from other people before, usually containing a few words and a link to some kind of bogus website. I never click on the link, but I guess they caught up to me somehow.

I have McAfee and the software has not detected any problems. I also ran a scan with Malwarebytes and that did not detect any problems either.

Logs below as requested. Please note, I also attached an image screenshot for gmer, which did not allow me to check all of the requested fields as per your instructions. They were shaded out and could not be clicked. Thanks in advance for the help.

I have a problem where an automated mail is sent from a third party software (SPAM) that goes to all my contacts in my address book.

What should I do?

I want to stop this program from sending automated messages. This is from a website Desktop Dating. It keeps sending a message that Did you receive my Invite to all my contacts.

How do I ensure that these mails do not go out.

A:Gmail sending SPAM to all my contacts

Wish I knew-the same exact thing has happened to my hotmail account and has sent this "invite" to my contacts on my hotmail account! I am very angry about this and when I tried contacting all of my contacts to let them know not to open the email invite to desktop dating that was supposedly from me, microsoft sent me a message saying I exceeded my 300 email messages a day so my email account is now suspended for 24 hours!!That is ridiculous because as now 374 other contacts on my list will not get the warning message about not opening up the desktop dating invite and thus their contact lists will probably be hijacked too because I can't warn them in time about this bogus email message. Let me know if someone tells you what to do--wish we could sue all these jerks for the problems they have caused us by their scams.

Hello

Wondering if anyone could give me some advice please? I received an email from someone who also has a hotmail account. I saved their details by simply clicking the 'save to contact' button. Since I did that, all their further emails between us now appeared under a nickname. Unfortunately this nickname wasn't particularly flattering and I'm in the embarrassing position of being accused of storing this person under this term I am absolutely positive that I have not done this and wonder whether this person (unknowingly) has a nickname attached to their account that would show when another hotmail account holder accepts them as a trusted contact? I have tried to ask this on Hotmail without success,

If anyone knows how nicknames on Hotmail work I would be very grateful for any advice,

Thank you

Hotmail users, could you help me out here? Once upon a time, I had a short list of "favourites" on the compose message page, and then Hotmail changed that and put my entire list of contacts in a drop-down menu (by email address, not by name -- awkward, but I managed). Now that's gone as well.

I spent a good half hour last night, trying to build a favourites list ... read through all the help topics, and found nothing to tell me how to do it. I open up the "Favourites" and it tells me there's nothing in there; I try to "edit favourites", but I can't type in addresses, and there's nothing in the contact list that I can *add* to the favourites list. I opened up a contact at random, and there is all the info: the name, quickname and email address ... and a little box -- already ticked -- that says "mark this contact as a favourite" ... but my favourites list is still empty.

Am I doing something wrong? Does anyone else have this problem? Clues how to fix it?

The WY logins are the actual legit user in the USA, but the India and Indonesia logins are not legit. Before cancelling the account, we suggested a VERY strong password consisting of letters, numbers, symbols, capital letters, etc. We will monitor to see if any strange activity recurs.

Hello, I'm on an LG laptop VISTA business 32, IE7, FF, 1,8 Ghz, RAM 2046.

I was so stupid to click on the link from a friend of mine. Now a link is forwarded to one of my contacts on my MSN messenger. It is not forwarded to all my contacts, only one of them as far as I know. He keeps getting this over and over again.

I have uninstalled my MSN live messenger. My friend took in this screenshot:
I am using Trend micro PC-cillin antivirus and firewall and has not picked up anything.

I appreciate any help!
Kind regards
Askeladden

Hi all. Please will somebody help me My freinds have been having a go at me telling me to stop sending them random rubbish on mesenger when Ive clearly not done so. So I'm pretty sure I have a virus of some sort. It keeps sending them links from what they have told me but im sorry I dont know what the link is? I have a free antivirus program (avast) thats suposed to have been protecting me from this and lavasofts "ad-aware" softwear that I run occasionally but It seems ive still somehow been infected. The trouble is that when I do a full scan of my computer they find nothing? Somebody told me to try AVG malwear scanner softwear, so I downloaded that, but it still finds nothing?

Can somebody please tell me what I can do to find the virus and hopefully once weve found it, how to remove it.

Thankyou

Sarah x

I can't send e-mail messages to a group list of more than 49 e-contacts, but I have a list of about 90 e-contacts I would like to send messages to. Is there a way to get around the 50 message limit, or must I divide my e-list into two groups?
Thanks,
Charles

ps this is Windows Live Mail that I'm using

Hi, a few days ago I noticed I had sent myself an E-Mail that I hadn't sent entitled "No Subject" and opened it to see a link which I clicked and the page had been previously reported for malware. There is nothing in my Sent Items Folder. Also one of my contacts has recently closed there E-Mail account so I received a failure notice on that and there was a different link in there, this has happened almost everyday since and obviously I don't want my contacts to think that I am some "Dirty Virus Writer". Any help would be appreciated. Thanks. DJ Surreal
