I am receiving emails from people who erroneously claim that I have sent emails to them. What is the reason for this, and how do I stop it?

If you use Hotmail, Yahoo or Gmail, your account may have been hacked and they are indeed receiving emails from that account.Change your password, and delete ANYTHING in your mailboxes from anyone you don't know personally.
