Iv got a very very big problem.
My iCloud accout has just sent over 40 Emails to over 50 People (these are meetings I have in my Calendar)
On my Iphone, i only had Photo Stream and Documents & Date TURNED on. Everything else was turned off, on my PC again, only had Photo Stream set up.
This is the 2nd time this has happened.
Iv got my Emails set up, (IMAP) so it goes to my iphone and PC.
At the bottom of EACH email it Does have the Icloud logo, and info.
I know 100% its Icloud sending these, as its sending my Full name out with each email, where on my email client, i have a nickname.

 

IT is only the calendar Invites that are being sent, Anyone have ANY idea please, as im not going to be peoples fav person for sending this many emails to them.
Thanks for any help.

    You are accessing your iCloud account with an email client on your PC?

     

    This is available at the bottom of each sent email when viewing the sent emails where?

    On my PC i use Microsoft Office for my emails, BUT all settings for email under Icloud were turned off.

     

    this is at the bottom of each Email that was sent

    I don't believe the settings under the iCloud control panel on your PC can prevent the email account from being accessed with Outlook.

     

    I asked this is available at the bottom of each sent email when viewing the sent emails where?

     

    With Outlook or via webmail access using a browser?

     

    And I just sent an email with my iCloud account via webmail access using a browser and what you provided was not added to my sent email at the bottom or anywhere else.

    This is the thing, In all the Icloud settings, Email has been turned off.Due to the fact we r useing IMAP
    iv never set it up.
    the only reason i believe its Icloud sending these email is due to the few lines at the bottom of every email.

    Every Email does have a iCal file within it, cause its inviting everyone again to the meetings

    When you launch Outlook on your PC, your iCloud account is not available?

     

    Once again, I asked this is available at the bottom of each sent email when viewing the sent emails where?

     

    With Outlook or via webmail access using a browser?

     

    Where are you viewing the sent emails to see these few lines at the bottom of EVERY email?

     

    Apple does not include those few lines with email sent by an iCloud account - not when sending via webmail access using a browser, not when sending email with the iOS Mail app on an iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch, and certainly not when sending the email via an email client such as Outlook.

     

    This leads me to think your iCloud account has been hacked.
