    You may have a virus that sends out emails to random address'. Do you have an anti-virus program that is up-to-date? Go here to see if you have a virus or not. Install and run Ad-Aware also.

    Do you update your reference files with Ad-Aware? Check your sent folder for anything else that you may of not sent out.
