Try to update your email password and wait for coming message?

By default when you post anything there is a checkbox to email you any replies (e.g. comments on your answer). So most likely what's happened is that every comment and answer on your site is sending an email to at least one person, maybe more.

You can turn that off using the option in Admin > Posting, so that the box is not checked by default.
