My friend emailed me to say that my Yahoo email was spamming him!

He said this before, and I changed my password and it stopped. It has started again. How can I prevent this?

Thanks

Change your password.  This is unfortunately the world we live in.  The only thing you can do is to change your password on a regular basis.  Yahoo, gmail, hotmail etc.. it happens all the time.
