Automatic Emails Being Sent Through My Account

I have recently noticed emails randomly being sent out to folks in my contact list that I did not personally send out.  Here is an example of the source of one of these messages (note that I deleted the actual email addresses in the from and to):

I have current antivirus software on the computers that I use to access my email, and I don't think I have a virus.  I do also access my email from my iPhone.

 

I would very appreciate any thoughts on why this is happening and how to stop it.

 

Thanks,
Christy

This happened to me four month ago. Change your password and the spamming will stop. Your password was probably figured out by robo-software. Make it harder to crack.
