    You can just setup another email address and export your contact list in yahoo mail.

    agreed. definitely change password, and yeah look really close at ID, and contact Yahoo for assistance if changing the password isn't helping.

    I think you are just looking at mail display name. Go ahead open that mail & check sender mail ID... Sending Spam mail with same looking display name is very common...

    the sender can send emails from your address without compromising your account. In this case i'd probly assume someone's sending out an email by php and using ur address as the sender..

    hi gys thanks for your replies,

    i notice when i reply to other peoples then i have to enter a string of characters or capichono like "4WhLm" etc, then i can send the email successfully.

    so the same way how i can do this string capichono, the sender to me has to type a string "K8hPq" etc, so what i have to do, for asking his to type string before he send me an email.

    please let me know this procedure, where i have to go to do in my email account settings.

    thanks

    I used to do something similar many years ago when it was possible to run a SMTP server at home. I downloaded some software that allowed you to send mail using any email address you wish.

    A friend of mine had mail address "john (at) mail dot com" for example. I wrote his address as sender address and then I wrote a nasty message and sent it to another friend, and 2 days later I hear him saying "I got banned from using school internet for 2 weeks because your other friend reported me to admin and showed an email message where I wrote nasty stuff but I did not write anything, I swear".

    That was fun times.

    I assume it is a similar method in this case.

    I have had 2 of my yahoo emails hacked. The only time I use their email is to sign up for things.
