I recently had my e-mail hacked and I have never encountered this before. My questions are:
1. how do you deny permission to send e-mail from a different IP address.
2. how do you recover your e-mail address([email protected]) or should i think about abandoning it
I tried to export my contacts and it did nothing.
Could this have been from a smart phone linked to the e-mail?
thanks in advance

1) You don't. It doesn't work like that, unfortunately.
2) If it's a free address (Hotmail, MSN, Yahoo etc) abandon it and set a new one.
3) Potentially,, but the majority of problems like this are caused because the users use a password that's too easy to guess.
