Suddenly i find that my email address has been changed/modified and that people cant send me mail back. I use Outlook, have Norton antivirus, checked tools etc for any changes there so am at a loss? Using w98 2Ed

Can you describe the change (without giving away your full email address).

If it was [email protected], is it now [email protected], or [email protected], or [email protected]?

In other words, which part of your eamil address is being changed, and in what way?

Try to post a similar example to your proper email address, and how it has been changed.

Is it any emails to you that don't work, or just replies.

If it's just replies, look at your email settings Tools - Accounts - Mail - click on your account and then click the Properties button. Look and see if you email address and/or reply address have been changed.

You can test all this yourself by sending mail to yourself, and also sending Replies to your own mail, and seeing what happens.

That was the changes that were happening to my emails. I have since changed my password and reverted to Outlook and touch wood all seems to be OK so far but will it happen again? was it my internet providers fault?
