    Last year I obviously got a virus/Trojan on my computer and had my contact list copied. Since then, roughly once a month I have had emails sent from my account spamming all of my contacts but I am at a bit of a loss as to what I can do about it and wondered if anyone can help? The emails essentially just say "check out this link" followed by a link (link varies and goes to various different sites).

    I have run antivirus/Trijan software on my computers, rebuilt them and also changed hosting. I don't think there is a virus on my computer anymore and think my email address is being spoofed - the spam emails are still sent out when my computers are off and not connected to the Internet. I have also checked the email headers and as far as I can tell from the IPs, they are coming from a third party and not being sent from my account.

    I have set up SPF, DKIM and DMARC records but this hasn't worked either. I'm not sure what else I can do and have Google'd it, asked lots of people but I'm at a loss now.

    Can anyone help?
