Mod Edit: Moved to proper forum ~~ boopme

Hi, I have a yahoo email acount, and every time I try to reply to someone or send out an email I get the following message: "Error code 475: Suspicious activity was detected on your account".
I have not sent out any bulk emails at all. I have not done anything different than what I have been doing for several years of having the account. At times the email will close out on it's own, and I keep getting a request from yahoo to change my email address.
The google chrome browsing experiences has been much slower as well. I get a stall often time when I am trying to go to a website online from search and from the address bar.
Does anyone have a solution to this problem?

It appears if you have web links to other sites in your email signature, Yahoo Mail will flag it.





Also, if you log in from a location different from the one you normally use, especially if it's outside your home country, or if you recently changed ISP providers, that can trigger it as well.





A third possibility is that your username and password have been compromised, and someone else is logging in and using the account to send spam.
