My mom just called saying she received an email from me at 2 am. It wasn't from me, but it was from me. Someone used my email but has another email they used instead of mine but sent out all emails to my list? How is that possible and how do I fix and stop it? I closed one email because of it and they have that email included!!! This is crazy! I just sent the email and reported it.

    Someone may have hacked your address book and is sending e-mails to it, spoofing your email account as the sender. First thing is change your password, preferably from another computer in case you have a key logger installed. Then run an antivirus program on your computer. Some good free ones are Malwarebytes and MWAV.
    This may resolve the issue.. This is done a lot of time because people will just automatically open an e-mail from someone they know. That is how computers get infected. The time is the give away. I have seen a few myself where I know the sender was not up at 4:00 am. If I'm in doubt I call them the next day and ask if its valid.
