Problems with Hotmail

  dobber 1 17:28 18 Oct 2010

Emails are being sent in my name to various mail addresses. Most show up in my inbox as undelivered, others show up in my "sent" box. Disturbingly they sometimes show up in my "draft" box. I do not know what the body of the message is, as I have not opened any.
I did have this problem a few months ago where mails were sent without my knowledge to people in my contact list. This stopped when I cleared the list. I do not recognise any of the mail addresses, so I do not know where they have come from.
Why is this happening, and how can I stop it?
