Not long ago I suddenly started receiving over 1,000 email every day. All from people/companies I never heard of, and from all over the world. There were too many to delete; I couldn’t handle it so I was forced to delete my Comcast email account and create a new one. I had a lot of fallout from this because my email adr was interwoven into many other aspects of my PC life.
Since then I am back to normal but wonder if anyone else has ever experienced this and, if so, did you learn why it happened and who did this to you? Is there anything that Webroot could have done to prevent it?

I believe the place to start is here: https://haveibeenpwned.com/
I know my very old AOL account has been breached. There was very old information on it anyway because I stopped using it many many years ago. All my AOL Accounts have been deleted and I updated my information on my new email addresses.
