IceWarp Software - intercepting my email? how to eliminate?!
Posted on 2004-09-10
Hi, i recently have been getting a message every time i try to send an email from my private address (using mozilla thunderbird). It tells me:
"you have attempted to establish a connection with "smtp.myaddress.com" however the security certificate presented belongs to IceWarp Software. it is possible, tho unlikely, that someone maybe trying to intercept ur communication with this website"
it then proceeds to tell me to contact my site administrator. i did, and they know nothing of it and told me its not from their side. i've also scanned my comp for viruses, and used spybot and adaware and have found nothing. i don't know exactly how i got this on my email, but i have suspicions that may be from a mass email a friend sent to me. i forwarded it to some other friends (around 7 people), and that was the first time this warning message came up, at the time i clicked yes - to go ahead and send, and i believe i sent one other email from that account after that point, and a day or so later my administrator contacted me to warn me that i'd been spamming people from my account!!!
i have not been using this account since that point, have not found a way to resolve this and get rid of this icewarp certificate, i would highly highly appreciate any suggestions anyone can give me on how to resolve!
thanks in advance!
