Can someone please explain to me how to get rid of the nasty which is causing my computer to send out many emails each day and Mailer-Deamon to report same. Thanks in anticipation.

Maybe change your password and look in contacts.Any contacts that you do not recognize delete them.

Are they actually being sent from your computer or web mail (look in the sent box) or are they spoof emails which just appear to be from you? The latter is more likely. Change e-mail password. But if it continues you may have to change e-mail address.

Thanks to both of you. I have changed my password. I will see how that goes. Changeing my address is such a pain but hopefully wont be needed. No record in my sent email box.

You'll need to check your e-mail account settings and that the new password is being recognised for the send part. I'm way out of date with Outlook Express so hope someone else can point you in the right direction.

Thanks Woolwell for trying. I have forgotten (OLD AGE is a pain) how to get into to the menu where I can do the reset of the SMTP settings. Can anyone help me with this. I am using Outlook Express.

2nd one down click on Mail then properties and it should show your e-mail details.Maybe change it from there.

If not just go through the whole process again.
