Emails being hijacked

Postby Jazzygt Tue Nov 28, 2017 3:53 am

Hi, just lately (the last week or so) when I click on a mail from a known sender, the content shown in the bottom pane is totally different, usually from various dubious porn or selling site. When I try to get to the mail I'm expecting to see, it just comes back with the spam, meaning I am not able to read what may be important information from a trusted sender. Does this mean that somehow either my provider or Mailwasher have been hacked in some way?
Also, when I tried to follow the link in my mail to Firetrust, my browser (Chrome) tells me the site is untrusted and to click to get back to safety.
I am using Mailwasher Pro 7.11.0
Regards

In MailWasher, if you go into Settings >> Accounts >> select the Incoming tab >> uncheck the option to Store Cached EMail >> Restart MailWasher.

Hopefully that corrects this issue.

Hi, thanks for your response. I have done as you suggest, will now have to keep an eye for any more of this problem. Will come back if there is a recurrence.
Regards
