Did you mean: account hacked

Settling in

My email account has been hacked and all the contacts & controls (delete, forwarding) removed.
It has also appeared on the Dark Web. Similarly other accounts have been hacked using this email address and data removed, logins and passwords etc (Firefox for one). I managed to import the inbox into a Gmail account in Outlook, but can't find any way of deleting this account. Like others on the forum, I've had this email address since the internet was invented and understand that these old accounts have been taken over by TalkTalk, but can't get through to them on the phone.  Is TalkTalk a safe haven for us and why did no-one notice this hacking going on??

Any advice about how to terminally delete this account would be welcome, thanks
