My email program is sending out emails on its own! Some are to people in my address book & some are to made up names and come back undeliverable. This has been going on for the last 30 minutes and I continue to get messages re: undeliverable emails in batches of 12-16 being returned that I did not send.

Hello @knoxbarker and welcome to TrendMicro Community!

I understand that you email program is sending out email on its own to some of the people on your address book and some made up names. Let me help you with this.

For security purposes, could you try to change the password of your email account and then monitor if the issue still persists. Also I checked your records here and I see that you are still using an outdated version of the Antivirus for Mac program. Please click on the link below to help you upgrade your Trend Micro program to the latest version:

Before upgrading, could you check on the step 2 if your Mac still meets the specific system requirement.

Thank you and have agreat day! :)
