Hello everyone! :)

I'm receiving several hundreds (yes, hundreds...) of notifies that sent mails are not properly sent. 

I never send them, and these are adress not stored in my mail client.

I think this is not a local infection (that will use addresses saved in my thuinderbird, not random addresses, right?) but a stoled mail credential.

I change mail password but without success. How can be that the hacker knows the new one?

Something to do? :(

I used BG in a full scan and Kaspersky online tool, and system is clean for both.

I am sorry to hear about that Max,

You seem to be a victim of Email spoofing. Changing your password was the right thing to do.

I would also like to advise you to contact your e-mail provider and let them know about what happens. They may be (not a certainty) able to see what is going on through the logs on their server. Perhaps they can help you reclaim your e-mail address and stop this.
