    I've already read a 3 page thread from nuube who, although was completely useless, seemed to have the same issue i just came into, and similar to another person I saw post on the apple website around September 12th or so.

    When I rebooted my phone the other morning, when it came back up it sent out a bunch of spam email to everyone on my mailing list.

    -Yes, my phone is jailbroken, but I only install from trusted sources, and use very few tweaks.
    -iOS 8.1
    -i changed my ssh password when i jailbroke my phone, and my passwords are not easy
    -I use Mailbox, and my email account is gmail, same one registered here.
    -There is no malware/virus on my computer. I've run Avira, Norton, AVG and malwarebytes anti malware, all up to date.

    So, what's out there? What could it be? Is there a virus scan for the iphone? or any other question you feel is pertains to this that needs to be answered

    Oh, and I had tons of bounce back email and all sorts of outgoing email that is no longer there, and I didn't delete it. I'm searching for remnants of the emails, I'll check my wife's tomorrow, if she didn't delete it already.

    Your email account was likely hacked, which is the most common cause for these issues. It doesn't have to do with malware on your iPhone or Mac. Change your email account passwords and make them long and complex.

    Post up the full email headers and we'll have a look. Those will typically tell the story of whether it was the phone or (more often) the email account.

    Have you looked in in your GMail sent folder on mail.google.com to see who all was sent emails?

    There's also the possibility that your email address was spoofed.
