    I need some help. My DX has sent 2 emails in the last 2 weeks. Both of the e-mails were sent to several people. One of them was an advertisement to a Canadian pharmacy for Viagra and Cialis!! What the heck! This is definitely not a website i have been on. How did the DX do that and why? It is really embarassing as one of the contacts was a teacher at my daughters school. This has to stop!! Any ideas?

    Sounds to me like someone has hacked your gmail account. Change your password.

    Moved to the X general discussion section.

    My sense -- the Droid do not send those emails rather your home computer got botted with malware and used your contacts for distribution.

    to add to what bill said, go to gmail and check ip addresses from where logins happened.
