    Default can you get email viruses on the phone?

    I have gotten some bug in my Yahoo email. It send spam to my entire address book, but it happens when my computers are not even on. Can it be the DInc? Help?!

    doubt it's the dinc.
    It's hard to get something like that on a device IMHO.
    It's your email acct itself.

    I never used Yahoo, but my wife does and so do some friends.

    Download the pc app called thunderbird and start saving the good emails or the ones you need. Eventually close the acct.

    actually, the same thing happened to me like 4 months ago. you will need to change you email password then delete everything in your email trash bin and spam bin. after that, run a virus scan on your computer to make sure there aren't any viruses or spyware malingering around. if all else fails, close the account and open a gmail account. those are the steps i took, but i already had a gmail account before.

    I do have a gmail acct, but have been using yahoo since it started. I will delete my contacts after saving them elsewhere. Then change my password and erase all emails.

    See if that helps...
