I have a feeling my hotmail has been compromised by an unknown person in my family cause a bunch of my private emails have been bounced/forwarded to my mom........this is the second time now

I have already changed passwords and stuff.......the works
from 8 letter passwords i have moved to 13 letter passwords


Is there any way to monitor who/what IP is accessing my email and when? I know gmail has this feature but does hotmail have it?

thanks

Orphcrack your way onto family members computers and see if they have been visiting Hotmail and using your e-mail address. Easiest way to do it.

Another thing, check for keyloggers. That's how someone ended up getting my gmail account

is it JUST your mom receiving your emails or all of your contacts?

A similar thing happened to me, basically i was a bot for someone for a day or two. dont know how it happened, but i changed my pw and it's all good.

Get some good virus scan tools, although I doubt thats the issue.

What I would do, is get a free keylogger and install it and see what happens

Um.. Maybe I'm not reading this right, but - Get a keylogger?

Don't you mean scan for keyloggers?

In your mom's account, go into one of the messages that was forwarded (if you still have it). Then, in the down-angle-thingy next to the Reply button (top-right) of the message, select Show Original.

This should show the message including the message headers. The message headers aren't hard to interpret, but this is where you would check to see the path the message took. You may luck out and the header contains something like "Originating IP" or some such.

nope
the address is my address and is forwarded from my account
however, that person is very smart
....left no trace in my email...deleted the sent/forwarded message in my trash bin......

In Gmail, you could view the ip of another session on your gmail account. Not sure about hotmail though... Does your family have access to your computer? Might be a keylogger/stealer

Either your mom is logging onto your account and forwarding it to herself as evidence, or you have a jealous tattle tail brother that wants to see you get into trouble. Seek him out and go into destroy mode, LOL.

You can use: http://s33.net/rec/home to create a link that steals the IP ADDRESS, BROWSER, and OS INFORMATION when clicked by someone.

How about going on a different computer, make a new email there and send a email from the new one to the original using a link generated above. If the mysterious person clicks it, you can get his/her information

You can compare the information to your families computers
