    Help My Hacking Coufh, Pleeze!

    Well, I must say first that I was disgruntled when I posted this on the Apple support forum and saw it rejected and deleted, no surmisal or conjecture. It must be my aftershave. Apple took over my life this last year after 20+ PC years. I went from iPad to iMac to iPod Touch to planting Apple trees in my yard. After years of virus and spyware programs, the Genius' at my Apple store told me I was through with those. That was until last week when I sent my pastor and banker e-mails telling them how to have crazy sex, and then my family e-mails telling them where to get cheap Viagra. Someone tried to hack my PayPal, but fortunately PayPal caught it. The Apple Store compatriots told me my e-mail account had been hacked and to change my Comcast password, which I did. Nonetheless, I am still getting Viagra e-mails myself. Theoretically I have my sensitive data protected with 1Password on all my devices. Suggestions Please, Pretty Please!!!

    For sure it is all too easy to 'spoof' someone's email account and then send offensive emails that purport to have originated from you. If you have access to a more comprehensive mail client than the one on the iPad you could analyse the email 'message source' - this will give you low-level detail on where the email originated, its routing through the Internet etc and contacting the service provider who hosted the actual account that the email came from may possibly yield results. Failing that, all you can really do is to inform all your friends and colleagues that these emails do not originate from you and tell them of the actual source (of course, this will be just the originating email account not the actual person's name) and suggest they update their email message 'rules' accordingly to filter emails from this source.

    I feel for you - this can be a very embarrassing and troubling experience; it's so easy for someone to hijack your identity in this way and so difficult to get your life back.

    I tell most people to grab a free gmail account as their spam filtering is excellent.
    Had one since it started and never had anything like that TG., whereas my old isp's mail server got hacked.

    I got gmail after my ancient AOL email was hacked. No problems!

    Except for the fact I changed my email/ID at iTunes and ever since then I can't update 11 apps but I won't even go there.

    There are some links here that will help you identify the source of these spoofed emails....

    View the Source of a Junk Email in Your Email Program or Service

    Good Luck
