    Dear all,

    I am lately receiving email delivery failures from emails that I did not sent. I have noticed that they contain spam message that are “sent” from my email (someone pretends to send them from my email) while I never gave any authorization to anyone to use my email address.

    This email address is related to my domain, loungeshare.fr, and not only am I concerned for the reputation of my website, but I am also afraid that my email might be considered as a spammer account in the future.

    I checked the emails that where send, they actually come from this address (and not my email, obviously): 66.33.216.126

    What can I do?
    Thank you all!

    The blog I need help with is loungeshare.fr.

    Hi !
    Thank you for your answer.
    My mail is still being spoofed, it does not come from my gmail, it appears that the problem is related to wordpress.

    I’m very worried, and waiting for a solution :)

    Thank to everyone in advance!

    Have a nice day!

    Your email is clearly compromised. Deal with your email provider.

    Hi there!

    It does sound like your email account has been compromised. Please revoke access to your account from other applications and change the password on your account.

    Here’s some information on creating a strong password:

    Let me know if you’re still seeing these emails after doing both of those steps.
