  2. Open your Smith Mail account in Chrome, scroll to the bottom of your message list, and click the Details link in the lower right, as shown below.

  4. Back in your Smith Mail window, click the "gear" icon in the upper right and choose Settings from the drop-down menu.


  5. In the Settings window, click each of the tabs below in turn and check for any changes you didn't make yourself:




    1. Under General, check your signature and your vacation responder message. Delete or correct any changes you didn't make.

    2. Under Accounts, check your Send-mail-as and Grant-access-to settings. Delete or correct any changes you didn't make.

    3. Under Filters, check your filters and delete or correct any changes you didn't make.

    4. Under Forwarding and POP/IMAP, check your Forwarding setting and delete or correct any changes you didn't make.

  6. Your account should now be okay, but be sure to read the section below for information about protecting yourself against phishing scams in the future.
