Someone sent a spam email to the first 25 people in my "Sent" folder of my Verizon Webmail account. I've changed the password, but is there some place that I need to report this. They definitely did not get it from my home computer because I use Outlook Express, and the email addresses were from the Webmail sent folder.
You do not have to report it but it is a good Idea to change your password and use a hard password that uses upper and lower case letters and numbers.

You already knew that a longer password is more secure, but how much more? BusinessWeek says a 6 character password (just letters) can be cracked in just 10 minutes while a 9 character password complete with letters, uppercase, numbers and symbols will take 44,530 years to crack.
