Z10 sending thousands of duplicate emails
Today I noticed hundreds of emails in the Hub sent to the same person, and I just assumed it was a glitch that renamed all of my other emails with one that I sent last Thursday. An hour ago however I got a message from my email provider telling me that my account has been frozen because of suspicious activity, and that the cause was that over 100 emails were sent in a short amount of time. And so I went to check my sent email folder, and there was thousands of emails (around 10MB each) sent to the same person repeatedly. It turns out my Z10 has been sending them non stop for the past 5 days. I've used half my 1GB monthly internet allowance in 3 days!
Does anyone else have this problem, and if so how did you fix it?
I noticed a few other people with the same problem, so I want to try and get the issue popular so BB can be notified and rectify the problem

It's more likely that the your reading the sync update that your phone does and it's pulling sent msg's that were in fact sent from the email provider' server end as a hijacked spam mail.
Highly doubtful it's the phone itself.
I have employees who's hotmail and gmail accounts get hijacked from time to time.This message was most likely posted from my PlayBook LTE, or my White Zed 10, or perhaps my HP laptop on my 10's wifi hotspot. Point is, BlackBerry played a part in this message!!

Gmail is having all sorts of issues if it was the gmail account.

This is a known issue having something to do with the email header. I'm not aware of the specifics, but Blackberry already knows about it. I believe a fix was either already made in the last update or it's coming soon.

So, any chance it was the same scenario?
