    i had something similar hun only mine were being sent to my OH telling him i was leaving him and that i was using him to get over my ex....they then hacked his and started sending me them as if it were him (sh!t myself cos he was away on a course and i couldnt get in touch straight away!)
    I honestly dont have any sugesions as to what to do, we have and idea that it was my ex/his friends that did it to us but we didnt really no how to go about reporting it and touch wood we havent had anymore for a while now. we just changed our email account.....

    It might not be hacked. I had a similar problem before (I take it you have lots of messages that couldn't be delivered and it was those email that alerted you) but when I checked my sent emails there was nothing weird there. I got in touch with yahoo (it was my yahoo account) and they said they people can make it look like they've sent an email from your account but they haven't really Here is some of what yahoo wrote to me after I reported it:

    Hello,

    Thank you for writing to Yahoo! Mail.

    It appears that the sender of this message forged the header
    information
    to give the impression that it came from your email address. The sender

    seems to have used your email address in the "reply-to" and/or the
    "from" field of the message sent out and, as a result, misdirected
    email
    is being returned to you.

    When you receive mail from a "MAILER-DAEMON" or a "Mail Delivery
    Subsystem", with a subject similar to "Failed Delivery", this means
    that
    a sent message was undeliverable and has been "bounced" back to you.

    These messages are produced automatically by the intended recipients
    email service and usually include a reason for the delivery failure.
    Bounced messages normally consist of two parts; the first contains the
    reason for the bounce, the second contains the original message.

    :hug: :hug: :hug:
