Yesterday afternoon I received notifications of delivery failures for half a dozen emails.
When I checked to see what messages did not go through I found messages for a get rich working at home thing.
I contacted my provider and they told me my email address had been used to send out a bunch of Spam emails.
They walked me through changing the security settings and my password to prevent this from re-occuring.
If anyone received any nonsense spam emails from me, my apologies.
This was a first for me.

This seems to happen to hotmail accounts frequently. Happened to me about 6 months back.

And here I thought you were just showing me some secrets to gain 2-3 inches. :whistling:

Wrong kind of wood growth.

Just hope it wasn't a stabilized, umm, treatment. That could prove cumbersome in several situations that passed through my mind in the time it took to type this! :D
