Default Fixed the email problem!!

Now is there anyway i can keep this from happening again? i had nortan and AVG-AV on the whole time ....


The reason you are getting these smtp errors is that our servers picked
up that you have a virsus that sends out alot of email at a time with out
your knowledge. To stop this from spreading we had to put a smtp block on
your account which stops you from sending email.
What we need to do to fix this is have you run a virsus scan and verfiy
your computer is clean of virsuses. If you do not have a anti virsus on
your computer you can use a free online scan. The best ones to use are at and
Hope this helps, if not please let us know.

Thank you,

Run auto scans all the time. Set your scanners to run at least once a week and let them do a whole scan. Also, run several Spyware tools to keep from having maleware do this.

Good luck

also never check email from people you don't know. that will usually trigger your problem.

especially in outlook and outlook express
