(1) I have been receiving spam emails in which I see that email was send my id itself. And when I check my "Sent" folder then I don't see any emails sent. (2) In another instance, an email (with a link in it) was sent to all my contacts without my knowledge. In this case, I could see the mail was sent in "Sent" folder. I have changed my password since then. Any help / pointers / suggestions on this would be highly appreciated.
