My partner has a Hotmail account and, over the last few days, e-mails are being sent out to friends, family etc from his account which has links to other "things". My partner himself is not sending these e-mails and, no doubt, if anyone opened the link it would end up being nasty. The subject matter is always a name of someone my partner knows.
One of these e-mail was even sent on Friday to a medical secretary from a hospital my partner has been in contact with only since Thursday and yet, whoever is doing this, has picked up her e-mail address and one was sent to her!
Can anyone please advise as to (a) it started and, more importantly (b) how to stop it!
