Via Windows Live and hotmail somehow the company Verisign Internet Directory takes your email addresses and keeps them on file--low and behold you will have emails you never wrote sent with you as the sender to all the people in your address book--I don't know how they do it nor do I know how to delete the information they have taken from you

If I am not mistaken, Verisign Internet Directory Services is a LDAP server.

If you have a situation where "...emails you never wrote sent with you as the sender to all the people in your address book" occurs then most likely your Hotmail account was compromised.

Change your Hotmail account password ASAP to a Strong Password.
