It is likely your email address has been spoofed. How Spammers Spoof Your Email Address (and How to Protect Yourself)
If you could view the header of one of the emails sent to someone in your contacts you would likely see that it came from a
different IP than yours and often from a different country.
Just changing a password is not good enough if your email account has been compromised. Changing secret words and other
things used to verify it is YOU who is changing the email account password needs to be done, too.
One of your email contacts could of been compromised. Good evidence for that is if those receiving your emails would have the
same contacts in their list of email contacts.

Other Cox email users have asked Cox to use two-factor authentication. I wouldn't use an email client that
didn't require more than just a password in today's environment.
Have you asked those receiving the emails to look at the headers or resend one to you so you can check the
header? That is the best way to determine if the mail is actually being sent from your account and your address
not being spoofed.
