Why mail is sent many times?

Question

I sent an email last July and the mail is be resent to the recipient many times. It also shows up in my Sent Box. I've deleted it many times. This happens intermittenly, sometimes weeks go by, then suddenly it begins to resend and multiple copies are sent to the recipeint and again fills the Sent Box.

I'm using Norton to scan email, also. Any thoughts??

I think it maybe a problem called zombies or also known as spoofing That is when people use your e-mail address and information about you that they found out on the internet That makes it easier for the person sending the e-mails many times without being known By doing that it makes it look like you are the one sending the e-mails when acually you are not the one sending them at all You will need to notify your ISP and have your password changed.
