My account is sending spam emails

My email account has sent out 3 spam emails in the past hour to a list of about 10 addresses that I don’t recongnize. I changed my password immediately after the first one, but then it happened again 2 more times. The subject of the emails is weight loss and growth supplements for men advertisements. I have reported them as spam. Please help, what else can I do to ensure my account isn’t compromised??

I have been getting this too. Is it 'via telus.com' ? Because I think I am being spoofed, I have changed my passwords and removed all app access and havent even logged into my accoutn on anything but one browser since the password change. 2FA is also up so it isnt my account security.

This is also happening to me right now. I just changed my password and logged out of everything, but it's still happening. I had one just come via Telus.com but the last one was via startimes2.science

I have received similar spam emails, this started yesterday. Looks like spammer is spoofing "From" header when sending email.
