I have gotten two junk mail e-mails from myself. I can't remember the topic of the first one but the second one was a Viagra ad. It is showing as having come from Jonathan Cross and Hotmail e-mail address exactly the same as mine.
Two things stand out as being strange. If someone had access to my account and sent some e-mails out, wouldn't those e-mails be in my SENT folder? They weren't. Second, the e-mails that I got came into my JUNK folder. I routinely send stuff from myself to myself and they always go to my INBOX.
Another thing that was very suspicious was that twice while trying to sign out of my e-mail account, it said that it was unable to sign me out of all parts of that account. Specifically the MESSENGER thing which I never use.
The last link may be a new button on my tool bar at the top of my page. It is a link straight to the sign-in page of Hotmail. I didn't put it there and neither did my wife. It just appeared one day and I have used it a few times. I have not used it since being suspicious. Could this be some kind of dangerous link that gives access to some remote user?
I have changed my password and secret question. I did that yesterday. So far, no more e-mails. So what do you think? Hacked or copied address? Am I safe now?
