    This was probably caused by someone obtaining your ID and password and copying all your contacts and email. From that point on they do not need your account. Anyone with a separate email program can use any address as the FROM address. There is no way to stop this method. They can continue even if the account is closed. They already have the list. To make sure they are not actually in the account change the password.
