    Hi--I'm a brand new user; I've been paying for web hosting for ages but am just now getting around to logging in to my account at magicfirebeads.com. So I log in, and click on check email. There were 2 options; neomail or horde. I have no idea which to use, so I clicked on neomail. I got in to what I think is my email account, but it is flooded with spam addresses to asaraiva @ magicfirebeads.com (remove spaces) and serranoasaraiva @ magicfirebeads.com. I have no idea who this is or why they would have been using my email account!!

    If indeed someone is using my account, how do I get rid of them??? Ooh, this is pissing me off seriously!

    Thank you for your help!

    It looks like Essie Serrano, or someone using that name, hacked into my account last July and sent a bunch of spam. Is there any way I can keep this from happening again?

    Thanks!

    Go on, have a guess
    In future you should contact your web hosting provider for such issues as these forums are for server administrators not end-users.
