If you input your email address here… https://haveibeenpwned.com/ 
it will tell you if any of your web accounts have been breached or not.

I had an old email address I used back in the day for Lord of the Rings Online. I didn’t know it, but their servers got breached and all details sold. A few days ago I checked my server and found it had sent about 100,000 emails in only a few hours. I was able to shut down the email address and the whole process forced me to improve the server settings (postfix, fail2ban, nail biting). 

Point being… don’t use the same password on your email address as you use for logging into any other web services. And while you may not do this anymore, you may have done so in the past. So check your shit people.

PS: If you got an email from me trying to sell Viagra… it was only legitimate if it was in aussie dollars. You can ignore the other ones.
