Hi, I hope someone can help me. My mother, who has a Hotmail account, recently began receiving masses (15+ per day) of emails from email@example.com entitled "Delivery Status Notification (Failure)". The attached messages are in French and English and certainly were not composed by my mother, and have links for dodgy looking companies. The failed recipients are things like "firstname.lastname@example.org" which are obviously nonsense. How can I stop this from happening? She has now changed her password, but are there any other steps we can take to stop these e-mails from arriving? Thanks in advance for any help.
