    Everyone in my address book is receiving spam e-mails from my yahoo account and I am locked out. People are saying my Mac has a virus. But I know this cannot be true.

    Anyone else having this problem and know how it might have happened?

    Your Yahoo account is being spoofed. It has nothing to do with Mail.

    In all likelihood, it also has nothing to do with Yahoo.
