To the computer-savvy out there, I need your help. My girlfriend is in the process of breaking away from her business partners to go out on her own, and one of the partners has become rather vindictive about the whole thing.
He is technically no longer employed by the company, but he still has access to a Yahoo e-mail account that was established before their own company server was set up. The address of that account is their company name followed by "@yahoo.com".
This partner is attempting to sabotage existing company relationships by sending Yahoo e-mails to customers and suppliers telling them the company no longer wishes to do business with them. This is a problem since my girlfriend is taking the company name with her when she splits and what he is doing could impact her future business.
So my question is this: is there anyway to stop someone from using a particular e-mail address? He’s changed the password and account info, so my girlfriend is unable to get into the account and disable it. The only thing I can think of is to sign that bastard up for every possible e-mail list I can find so his account is flooded with spam. But beyond that, I don’t know. Does anyone know if there’s anything else we can do? And, yes, kicking his ass sounds like the best idea, but that’ll come later.
Thanks for any ideas.
