    Do you use Gmail only on your phone? All you had to do is login to gmail on infected pc and your info is compromised or reply to phishing email.

    Easy fix, change your password from a secure location.

    I think i know what caused it my friend sent me a email saying check this out and it was a blank file and when i got up every email sent from me were blank files so maybe that caused it im not sure i changed my password so maybe that will fix it

    Maybe you can try uninstalling Gmail on your phone and then reinstalling it? and change your password? Just a suggestion though I've never heard of this problem before.. Good luck!
