    Hi just wondering if someone could advise me please.

    I had emails for a customers account AUTHRELAY Alert they tried to send 1000s of emails,
    but this could not of been the customer because they had been sent from 5 different countries, and need to know if this means they all got access to his email account or would they have malware on their computer ?

    Could be either, you should investigate both. At the very least, change his email and account passwords.

    Hello,

    Hackers/Spammers get access from sorts of locations. Most common is that the computer or device at the customer is infected with a trojan that steals passwords. Have them scan their computer and any device that access emails for infections.
