Hijacked Account

It appears my account was hijacked.  I have many, many unsubscribe emails frompeople I have never heard of.  I am puzzled because I have a very complicated password.  I have deleted all of the unwanted emails.  Is there anything else I can do?

I doubt your account was hijacked.  It sounds like your e-mail address was forged on someone else's messages.  There is nothing you can do about that.
