Is this a hotmail address or one assigned by your ISP? Are these being sent to your address book contacts and if so which address book? If it`s your hotmail account change your password immediately.

Are you saying that you use an e-mail client such as Windows Mail or Outlook, installed on your machine along with the relevant address book to whom these e-mails are being sent?
