Re: [MedievalSawdust] So, Conal's been hacked again?
Yes. Conal's emails are apparently sent to standard email addresses. If those individuals received the spam in Conal's name, then it had to be sent via SMTP or by signing in to a web-mail account. Both of those messages require a userid and passwd (strictly speaking, SMTP does not - but if it doesn't then it is an open mail relay which is pretty much untrusted in the current Internet).
Emails get into one's "Sent" folder because the email client (LookOut - either Office or Express, Thunderbird, web-mail, or whatever) puts the mail into the folder when one sends it via the client. If the email is sent from someone else's email client using one's userid and passwd - there is no copy to the "Sent" folder.

Just as an FYI, you can send posts to a Yahoo group just by spoofing an email address that a user has setup to send to the group..
