    Cool [SOLVED] Outlook email highjacked?

    I opened Outloo this Am and closed it within a couple of minutes. Upon closing it said there were unsent messages and did I really want to close. I had sent a message last night and then closed so I thought it might not have been sent before it closed. Then I noticed that the "out box" had 3 messages in it. By the time I could open the file they were gone. Checked the "sent' file and there were 3 files I did not author.

    The text of one follows----------------------------------------------------

    It sounds like you have some malware on your system. I would start by following the suggestions in this topic by Guru fax:

    http://forums.zonealarm.com/showthread.php?t=70448

    Do you have any other anti-virus, malware, spyware, firewall, etc programs installed on your PC, even if not running.

    Let us know how you make out.

    Hi!
    go to ZA e-mail protection --> Junk Mail filter --> Advanced --> Challenges tab --> Turn it OFF
    IMO, 'sonicwall challenges' is a non-feature only useful to notify the potential spammers that your e-mail is valid and get more spam!

    Cheers,

    Appreciate your help.!!! Ran MBAM and only came up with one insignificant item. Then made the changes to the setting as your recommended. All seems fine.
    Many thanks for curing my "High Anxiety"
