I don't know if this is relevant, bu we're running Outlook 2007 on XP Pro. We've received the following email:
"From: HWM_Notice_From [mailto:HWM_Notice_From]
Subject: ATTENTION: High Water Mark Notification, total bytes stored.
Your mailbox is over the high water mark.
Please delete some messages from your mailbox!"
We've checked out the header details, and there's nothing to indicate where this is coming from, and no way to reply to it.
Outlook downloads our email constantly from the server and is not set to leave copies on the server. Our ISP is Time/Warner Roadrunner, and weve confirmed with them that the message isn't being generated by them, and that they show no mailboxes full.
For what it's worth, Roadrunner had an email size quota of 10,000 kb, and we've had someone send us an email with a large attachment that was rejected. It generated the following email:
From: Bounce_Notice_From [mailto:Bounce_Notice_From]
Subject: ATTENTION: Bounced Message Notification, total bytes stored.
A message was sent to you that was returned to the sender(bounced) because it would have caused your mailbox quota to be exceeded.
The following is the reason that the message was over quota:
Quota Type: total bytes stored
Quota Available: 7538229
Total Quota: 10240000
The following is the information on the message that was bounced:
Subject: Fw: IMPORTANT - PLEASE READ: Final PDF of New & Noteworthy #4
Message ID: XXX
Date: Tue Feb 5 17:06:25 2008
Reply-To: [No Reply-To]
To fix this problem, delete some messages from your mailbox, and contact the sender to resend the message.
If the size of the message is too big, contact the sender to reduce the size of the message and resend the message."
The "From" info ("Bounce_Notice_From") is similar to the HWM notice nomenclature, so we're thinking maybe it's from the same source; but, again, we've confirmed that it's not generated by Roadrunner (we've since increased the email quota to the maximum 90,000).
Has anyone run across this kind of notice when a full mailbox can't be located?
