Re: Changing password on primary email accounts

Good point about MW, but I've been using it for over ten years now with no problems.

The suspect emails are delivered with a [Suspect] tag, so I don't think MW would be involved in an active way, but their data could have been compromised, as you say.

I think it's more likely to be the fact that the primary address is an early one with just a christian name and s a surname and is therefore likely to be targeted 'at random' .

For a while I'll download them and forward them to BT, since the 'Original To' field in the header is always (so far) a btinternet address

Re: Changing password on primary email accounts

Morning all

I've been forwarding some mail to phishing  at btinternet, since they appear  to be connected to a few btinternet accounts (the original To filed in MW .

 

I had this email from the postmaster sccount at BTI ...

-------------------------------------------------------------------------

- These recipients of your message have been processed by the mail server:
phishing@btinternet.com; Failed; 5.3.0 (other or undefined mail system status)

    Remote MTA mx-bt.mail.am0.yahoodns.net: network error


 - SMTP protocol diagnostic: 554 delivery error: dd Sorry, your message to phishing@btinternet.com cannot be delivered. This mailbox is disabled (554.30). - mta1020.bt.mail.ir2.yahoo.com

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

I assume that the server was down for some reason. Does that seem reasonable? Does anyone know if there is another address that I can send them to?

 

Cheers Dave

Re: Changing password on primary email accounts

Ah!

Thanks Neil.

The wrong address was in my email client and it Auto completed Smiley Frustrated

I'll send a few more off to the right address and see what happens.

Cheers
