Question by : Email was sent from my hotmail account but I didn’t send it?
Hi there woke up this morning and opened my computer, MacBook Pro, and opened the Mail application to which I have a gmail and hotmail accounts on and it had sent an email to random contacts on my list with a link in it, didn’t click it and emailed those people told them not to click it.
Then there were a few postmaster delivery failure notifcations sent back and those had different links, also didn’t click.
What do I do?
Am I being hacked?
Changed all passwords and stuff, but just got another delivery failure notification to those emails I did not send.

Sounds like the same thing that happened to my Hotmail and Yahoo accounts. You did the right thing by changing your password, and not clicking on any links.If any of your contacts email you then just tell them what happened.
