Spammers have accessed your address, easily done. I would advise you to immediately change your Password, might be a good idea also to change your email address if possible.

A handy tip .

If you go to a site like Heart Internet, register a domain (from about £3 per year,and their free web space (100mb), Heart will give you 100 Email addresses, which means you can use (i.e. one for family & friends, another for websites, one for competitions etc.
If they get full of spam, just choose another Email address, and yes they work in Outlook & Express.
