In progress Help Email being used for spam ?

Post by Singer on November 27th 2012, 10:09 pm

They are using my email to spam sex stuff and I have no idea how they can ?
I mean they are not hacking me on my forum I don't think ?..I looked at ips that have been on or signed in and its only me..so how can they use my forum name as you see below
( hairweftingtapeforum.com )my <xoxoxoxoxoxo>email address; that was my private email -so I xox it for showing here Smile
but they are using my private email to spam people ? and its random people not even my forum member's I did change that email -via the forum .. but the email says forum board -also ..
the reason I know this is all these people are emailing me to say take them off the email list?
Help how do I stop them .. ? I mean I don't even know who they are so I cant email them ?
Thanks for any and all help and Ideas ..

You mean someone has posted your personal email address for public to view & such public are emailing you.
The best way out of this would be to mark the emails as spam from people whom you do not know.
In the future, please avoid posting email addresses in public.

Or do you mean someone is sending emails to members and nonmembers using your email address that you used to create your forum?

YES some how they are able to send anyone in the world using my email that I had for the forum .. also it said forumboard-and forum name on the email and it was attached using my email address.. so this way they can just spam people and never get a STOP or take me off email .. they just send there info for there website .. do you think it has to do with my forum email or my own server email being used some how ? really I don't get how they can send it from there end? .. I did sign in my forum and can see if you were me you could send out emails using the very same address and info ? but I didn't see any IP address other than me in there ..OR really I have no clue if they can log in some how and just use the email ? ..sorry I am going on an on I JUST DONT GET IT ? .. so I guess I will see if they can log in and do it again because I did change my admin email address in there so I guess if they do it again using that one I WILL know they can get in ? so bummed ..I feel so bad for the people they are spamming there bull ..thanks for any ideas and thanks for even replying back to me today Smile

I think its nothing to do with Forumotion. But your email service provider itself.
The best way to stop this is to firstly, change the account password.

you mean to this forum ? because I know my server is tight and there is no way they can get in there .. also I just noticed here that I always say that you can email me .. yet just now I checked my email and it said noemail.xoxoxoxoo .noemail -- and of course I just put xoxo instead of my real email but I never did that here .. I always got your emails..so maybe I need to change this password here ?
