I was hacked

My apologies to anyone who received unusual emails from me today with the subject lines of 'hi' or anything to do with vacations or electronics. My hotmail email address was hacked. It's frozen for the next 24 hours. I am receiving emails into the inbox that I can read - but can't respond since the bl**ping spammers used it instantly to send out mass mailings and exceeded my send limit. Thanks everyone for the heads up, I've gotten a lot of emails from you all realizing that the spam wasn't from me but that my email was compromised. Don't people have anything better to do then hack emails?! Frustrating.

I'm hoping by the weekend to have a bit of time to blog again and catch everyone up on the adventures here. Some good, some bad, some grand!

Sorry again for the spam. Situation has been rectified -- if not quickly.

I figured that that is what happened. It happened to one of my email accounts last summer and it was so frustrating! Hope you're back up and running soon.

The email definately didn't sound like it was from you. I tried to be vague just to make sure! Hope it gets sorted out!

Ouch, this has happened to several friends of mine with hotmail. And I have just had an account of mine compromised as well. It might be a key logger - which means your other password and accounts could be vulnerable. I'd change all your passwords and run a Spybot and AdAware search for things.

(hugs)

I was hacked last year. The only thing that stopped it was getting a different hotmail account. I'm sorry. It's a royal pain!

was just going to pop you an email to let you know. i thought it was wierd, and that you probably did not want to go into biz. together.
can't wait to see what else you have been up to. Hope all is well!

That sucks majorly. I can't believe people waste their lives just being destructive. Sometimes I get these rude commenters with weird links and all I can do is shake my head and press the delete button.

What a nightmare! Am curious about the e-mail now though as I didn't get one! :D Where you trying to sell me Viagra or something?

Gosh, what a pain! Hope you get it sorted out soon.
