Can you help by email or chat this way just paid the bill.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, I can help you in this chat mode though remote access is a better option in this case.

Are you using a computer right now?

Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Is the problem happening in the computer? Or in your phone?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
On the computer. the phone is separate and not sync with the computer. avg on phone and email passwords have been changed on all accounts but emails still not coming through. had the phone factory reset.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Ok so the problem is on the computer not on the phone. Now, what email program are you using in your computer? Is it MS Outlook 2016? Windows Live Mail?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ms outlook is the account with the problem.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

So your problem email account is***@******.*** and you are using MS Outlook in your computer. Is this correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

And the problem is because you have forgotten the password ***** this account. Correct?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
no. the password ***** been changed and the new one written down on paper, but this doesn't seem to have changed anything. i can get into all of the accounts, but no emails are reaching me on my hotmail account and other people on my contact list were recieving emails from my account that i never sent, ones asking to send money, etc.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Hi, thank you for that clarification. I believe your account was compromised.

Can I remotely access your computer so that I can directly check the problem from the webmail end and from your Outlook and fix them while you watch?

Remote access (Secure Remote Assistance) is an optional additional service offer with a minimal one-time flat fee regardless of how long it will take me to fix the problem. We can resume any time without additional cost. It is safe as you will be watching your screen and we can chat right there, and it will be a faster mode of help.
Please let me know if you want this remote option.
Best regards,
Jess

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
other than remote access, what are my other options (please take no offence, I only want to know all the facts before I make a decision)? would simply deleting the account and using a different email as my main one also eliminate the problem or not?
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Are you sure about the deleting of the account option? Since you are using MS Outlook, if your email account was hacked, even if you delete the account from your MS Outlook, the hacker can still use it since he could have gained access to it. The only difference is, you will no longer know what the hacker is doing with your account since you deleted it from your MS Outlook.

If you are referring to the Hotmail account itself, you cannot do it in MS Outlook. You need to sign in to the account using the web browser and then delete the account from there. This will eliminate all the hassles the hacker caused you though, but all emails and contacts stored with that account will be gone as well.

I am referring to the Hotmail account itself as I had to change the password ***** logging in through the web browser. however, I am subscribed to all sorts of newsletters, etc. that come into my email. reestablishing all the contacts wouldn't be just tedious, but a huge job. also, i don't know for certain whether the hacker is completely into my MS outlook or just the hotmail. it may just be better to allow the remote access.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

Yes, remote access will be very helpful so that I can directly check your MS Outlook or your browser if they have caused theses issues as well.

I will now send the formal additional service offer of remote access. Please accept it so that I can create our remote session. After accepting it, you will then receive the procedures to join me in the remote session.

Sorry, am I required to create an account with join.me to do this? there is only that option on the screen.
Expert:  Jess M. replied 1 year ago.

No need to create an account. You just need to download the remote tool and then run it. Share your screen to get a code and then give me the code.

However, if you are locked into creating an account, then you can do it then. You can create an account with JoinMe for free.
