I assume that at the time 'you' aren't checking or sending any email ?

If not then you appear to have an undetected or hidden trojan mass emailer. I would set the Internet Mail sensitivity to High and that will probably inform you of multiple identical emails.

What is your Operating System (windows version) ?
What is your firewall ?
It should be capable of blocking unauthorised outbound internet connections.

If you haven't already got this software (freeware), download, install, update and run it, preferably in safe mode.
1.  If using winXP or Vista SUPERantispyware On-Demand only in free version. Or AVG anti-spyware (formerly Ewido) Resident scanner during trial On-Demand after trial ends. Or Spyware Terminator Resident scanner.

Your English is fine.

If the above applications don't find it we can take the next step.

No problem, glad I could help.

Monitor the problem and if it continues come back and we can try some other tools.
