e-mail hacked - how can I stop spam messages going out under my name?

Our e-mail apparently was hacked.  The violator has been sending out links to my address book, under my name.  The link seems to be for Viagra.  I'm hearing from some of my contacts, not happy to receive the messages.  How can I stop these from being sent?  I have already changed my password to access e-mail.  Thanks for your help!

I'n having the same problem, although I don't know what the email is that's being sent out. I changed my password but it's happening. When you changed your password did it continue? Did you change your security questions too?

I have the same issue and the spam is coming from my old bellsouth.net address which was migrated to Yahoo.

It would be great to know how I can access it to make changes and stop the spam. My contacts informed me they don't need Viagra Smiley Wink
