That's exactly what happened to me some years back. So, your pc is safe, it's the BT server that was compromised by some twat getting your password. Microsoft Essentials only protects your pc.
I won't use web based email. I suck them all down to the Mac/pc then they're all behind the firewall/virus protection et al.
Change your password as said before ... Letters, capitals, numbers and punctuation.
