One of my email accounts apparently was hacked??? I had an account where I work that was email@example.com I got married and got a new address of firstname.lastname@example.org Our email is hosted by a third party. It is "violation" to send more than 250 emails (that are alike") or they consider it spam and is not allowed. We know all this. I left tcox account active, with a forward to my new account until I could get all my contacts and business associates notified.
A couple weeks ago, I received notice from our vendor that the account was disabled because somehow, someone used the tcox account and tried to send 600+ emails.
The only thing they provided to me was this: (and a list of recipients)

According to our vendor, there is no way to tell how this happened. IS THERE ANY WAY TO TRACE THIS BACK?
