Hacked into my Bellsouth.net email acct.

Someone hacked into my Bellsouth.net email account and sent emails to all my contacts. I was able to change my password and disable the account. How can I find out if he has access to other items on my iMac. Anyone gone thru this?

Relax they just hacked your email account, probably threw a Web Mail extension. ie: www.webmail.bellsouth.com I doubt they hacked into your computer.

ask someone to send you the email back. and read the header info embedded into the email. it will tell you WHERE the email was sent from:

Here use this link to parse the Header info: http://whatismyipaddress.com/trace-email
