I've just seen that my email address has been used to send an email to all my contacts, how the hell did that happen??? This was the message:
Good shopping for you!
i would like to introduce a good company who trades mainly in electornic products.
Now the company is under sales promotion,all the products are sold nearly at its cost.
They provide the best service to customers,they provide you with original products of
good quality,and what is more,the price is a surprising happiness to you!
It is realy a good chance for shopping.just grasp the opportunity,Now or never!

i get these all the time from a mateof mine. i think it works when you open up a dodgy email and it then goes to all your contacts and send the same email out so as to make it seem ok because its from you!

This happened to me to - when i signed on hotmail something near the top near messenger and options said 'vacation on'. I clicked on it and there was an automatic message from some electrical co trying to flog stuff that went to all my contacts. Nothing has been sent since i switched it off.

Have a look to see if yours says the same

Its in your e-mails - look at your vacation reply, look at opions then more options, manage your account - vacation reply - check if you have a reply set, if so check box dont send any vacation reply then save it. if it comes back then some thing is in your e-mails. what i did was delete all messages then reset vacation reply and it stopped appearing.
