Recently I started noticing a lot of "message delivery failures" coming into my inbox when my self hasn't been sending any emails. I noticed my Hotmail settings were changed, the signature was advertising some website that sold products, as well as "vacation messages" set up too do the same if I recieved some.

I ended up changing the password today and I was wanting too be sure if I fixed this problem. Is thier anyway too check it?
If I am helping you and I do not respond within 24 hours, please send me a PM. :)

There really is not a one size fits all answer to see if you have fixed it. You'll just have to keep an eye on things for awhile to see if you get the failures again. Read through the following for more information as to what you can do to protect your account:
