i don't know the people and im not sending them! one of the email address [email protected] all the email addresses are like [email protected] and one of them is sent to [email protected]? i dint even know you could send to website addressess. I'm not sending them though! and what is being sent is all the same thing to about in wingdings font or something. it has been sent a couple of times every day since the 2/06/2011.
-if it helps i mainly check my email on my ipod and phone (blackberry curve 8250) and very rarely check it on the computer (i've got 10,000+ unopened messages) HEEEELLLPPPP!!, my itunes account is linked to this email address but luckily its a real itunes account with none of my credit details and stuff, but you know.

try to block these emails by these steps
1-Select Options | More Options...
2-Click Safe and blocked senders link under Junk e-mail
3-Now click Blocked senders
4-Type the emails that you want to block,You can block all addresses at a domain
(domain is what comes after '@' sign in an email address such as @qq.com)
5-Click Add to list

sorry but if it didn't work you will need to change your email and make new one

Sounds like your E-mail account has been compromised, or you picked up a virus.
Immediately have your computer checked for a 'bug' or 'bugs.' If you have the proper programs, do the scans yourself, if not you need to take your computer to some one who can.
Once it is clean of pests, install a firewall and an anti-virus program if you do not have one yet.
I strongly recommend a program for malware and adware also.
After you finish this, then go in and change your password, using a good strong one.
Also, check your account information and make sure no information was changed, if it was change it back immediately.
Then, you will have to inform your contacts that it was not you sending that mail, but they need to check their computers in case they were also infected.
