Is it possible or has anyone ever had messages sent from your account to someone else that you didn't really send yourself? I had this happen to me and didn't know if anyone else has...?

Yes. I don't know how it happened but it did. You should change your password and any accounts passwords that are linked to the one that got hacked.

you should change passwords every 15-30 days. these days a 12 year old can hack your computer.

life is too short to be taken seriously all the time,,,, go buy a MR.potato head and have some fun.

PM's sent on here to other users? If that is the case I would say your account has been hacked somehow. I would think an Admin would be able to help you out with this.

I put a dummy address into my address books like #blob@blob.blob. If a worm sends a email out to my entire list I should get an undeliverable message.

I don't know if it works as I've never caught a worm that does that.

Passwords with numbers, case changes and symbols are something like 9,000,000 times harder to crack.

Keep you anti virus and internet security software up to date. It's something I personally don't mind paying for.
