Specs: Windows XP
got email (we both use hotmail) from hubby today with an old pic of me from 4 years ago. He did not send it to me and it is not in his hotmail sent messages box? A few days ago he fired up an old laptop thats been in storage for a year or so.

I'm getting something similar and I think I know where I picked it up. I was foolish enough to enter my email address and password into a service on website 'Badoo' so it could search my contacts for other friends using the site. Thought I was being smart changing my password straight after but it appears to be sending fake emails to everyone in my contact list.

Have a number of Delivery Failure notifications from where whatever system they use, be it a bot or a virus on my pc, has tried to send emails to whoever of my contacts no longer have accounts etc. Also like deena mentioned there was nothing in my sent folder.

Is this something that can be stopped or is it out of our control now? A bit embarrassing that my contact's email inboxes are being spammed with mail that has my name on it.
