fawlty car abuse

Meh... Hackers...

Apparently some spammers hacked into my old ATT/Bellsouth email account overnight and tried sending spam to the people in my contact list, judging from the mass of "mailer-daemon failure" notices in my inbox this morning. Even though I rarely use that account since switching ISPs, I went in and changed my password, to hopefully put a stop to the spammers access to that account.

Looked all over, and even though I cancelled AT&T's DSL, there is no way to disable the old email account, so I figured the password change would be the next best thing.
