Hi Group:

I've noticed the increased frequency of compromised email accounts of late. Some even "simulate" a real message based on earlier emails but with a false, spam address.

I recommend everyone going to a 2-step verification process that requires for any new device, a code to be entered from your cell phone. 

Most common carriers have this feature as an option, and although a bit bothersome at first, provides much greater security on email accounts. The method also works on smart phones, pads, laptops and computers.
