Customer Question

Hi, my account still seems to be receiving attempted hacks and I never got my address book back since it got hacked in december 2011 and again in the more recent past (this year). My account used to be***@******.*** and I changed it it***@******.***. Since the way was made easy to consolidate emails, someone hacked my account using another and I lost all my address book again.
JA: Just to clarify, what email service provider are you using for this account?
Customer: Yahoo.
JA: Have you installed any updates recently?
Customer: what kind of updates?
JA: Anything else you want the computer expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: Yes, I am looking for a particular email address of Adolfo Nicolas, S.J.(Society of Jesus) I saved his email in my inbox folder which I believe I called Fr. Nico. I want to email a reply and I can`t find the email address.
