    I find this so wierd....(Outlook 2007).

    About a week ago I received a message addressed to (name05)@hotmail.co.uk as a cc. I have no idea who name05 is!.

    Today I received a message from (different name)@shaw.ca. This, different name a legitimate e-dress. When I hit 'Reply' to this message I noticed that my reply would be sent to name05.

    This is weird and disturbing. Does anyone have thoughts on how this has happened and how/if I can get rid of name05 out of where ever it is. Its definitely not in the drop down list when I hit "To". Nor is it in my contacts.

    Thanx for any suggestions you can offer.

    I suggest that someone you know has had their address book hijacked. With a program, it is very easy for a spammer to change names and addresses that appear in e-mail. The best thing you can do is delete the email and move on.
