Apparent Email Spoof??
Posted on 2006-11-09
I have a user (Andrew) who uses Outlook over a VPN connection to access our MDAEMON 9 email server. Every now and then he will recieve an email with a new subject line, but upon opening the email the body is a old message that he sent on a previous date/time. For example, today he recieved an email from a customer (Lamica) inquiring about hotel reservations for our upcomming users confrence, the subject of the email was called "Registered for Confrence, Las Vegas, but no reservations" the body of the email read:
Larry, it has been some time since I last communicated with you and wanted to check in to see how your implementation is progressing.
Please let me know if we can assist, or if you wish to review what we have to offer.
No one else in our organization is experaincing this issue. I am thinking its either a virus on his home network or on the senders network. I have scanned our companys network and found nothing.
this occurs both with internal emails and emails from the outside
We are using IMAP 4
He is connecting through SonicWall VPN
I backed up his email to a pst, wiped out his email account and re-created an empty mailbox and he is still having the issue
The problem is not only in outlook but on the webmail as well.
Anyone have any clue why this would happen? Any virues out there that would cause this? any suggestions would be helpful.
