    Why would you think people from PF are getting into your email? What kind of evidence do you have?
    Are you talking about those weekly thread subscription notices that come via email?

    Ever since I've joined the forum, my email says either, "you have logged in on another computer" or "you can't log in because there have been too many attempts to log in."

    That's an odd problem. What are you using for email? I assume you are using some kind of browser based email client to read it? Which browser are you using? Are you possibly still logged into your email in another browser window?

    Maybe a mentor or admin can shed some light. Still, I am pretty sure people here aren't monkeying around with your account.

    Someone in admin here could check the ip address and make sure that it is you. Do you log in frequently at school and leave yourself logged in? I don't know if it would make any difference, but its something to look at before blaming someone. This might have nothing to do with PF at all.

    I would definitely change all my passwords right away.

    Mentors don't have access to member's e-mail information or passwords. Everything is kept private. No one here is tampering with your e-mail.

    You should contact your ISP, they may have information on what the problem is.

    According to your IP info, you are logging in from at least two different places - are you sure you're not forgetting to log out or having your email account log on automatically in a public place?

    Have you changed your password?
