Gmail help

Help. Gmail is sending blank messages every time someone emails me, including spam. Does anyone know how I can fix this? I changed my password in case my account was hacked (it looks like it may have been, because it shows that someone accessed it from another state, but that was this morning and the problem started last night.) Thanks!

Re: Gmail help

Do you mean that you are somehow automatically sending out blank messages in RESPONSE, when someone emails you? Or that you are GETTING the blank message from the other persons?

If the former, check whether the hacker may have set up a canned response in your gmail settings. That would cause your account to auto-respond to every message it gets. Also check if you have any filters set up (such as auto-forward all your emails to another address).

Sorry you got hacked.. can't imagine how I'd feel if that happened. Everything about my life is in my gmail..

Re: Gmail help

Thanks for your help. It was the first (somehow I was sending blank messages the instant anyone emailed me.) But it looks like since changing my password, that stopped. Only it looks like somehow the message that I changed my password was forwarded to some weird address... so now I'm trying to figure that out.
