    Somehow a spam email was sent to all the contacts in my Gmail address book. If you got that email, I'm sorry.

      did you run a virus scan? It's usually a virus or trojan that does that.

            Yes. I am really interested.. To know, what she sends about Hubpages to all the mailbox members..

    Trsmd:

    the original poster was apologizing if anyone from Hubpages received unwanted email from her account.  That's all.  You don't want to read it, it was trash, junk, spam.

      No.. because she is apologizing from Hubpages users only..

      What I think is that she may be promoting about her Hubpage to her email users...

    No, there are a few Hubbers that I have emailed personally. And not to promote my hubs. That is all.

      It's not easy to bridge certain divides. What's important is that you tried, my friend.

    It might have nothing to do with your computer.  Some malware might have pulled your name out of somebody else's address book and spoofed it.  (It's happened to me once.)
