I have found an email that was not sent by me in my sent folder. Lets say its to someone who I have never met and would never email. How can I prove to my wife that I did not send this said email?

 

Do I have a virus, have I been hacked?

 

Any serious replies would be gratefully accepted.

How do I get help? Who is helping me?For the time will come when men will not put up with sound doctrine. Instead, to suit their own desires, they will gather around them a great number of teachers to say what their itching ears want to hear....Become a BleepingComputer fan: Facebook
