I have an employee that uses and an email account.  Today everyone in his address received a message.  Then he logged into his account and it is in a different language.  I'm assuming it got hacked and is being used as spam email address.  Any ideas on what to do?
Who is Participating?
Step one, have him change the password.
Assuming you don't speak that language and neither does he, contact Microsoft.
Are the emails coming from him?  Have you checked the message headers?  It's possible that his contact list was grabbed, but it's also possible that another user was hacked and had a similar contact list and the From: address was spoofed to throw you off the track.  You should probably run virus scanners on everyone in the office and have them run a scanner on all their home systems.
