Urgent Email Help Please

by ZaidO123 / September 1, 2012 2:40 AM PDT

Hi Guys

Since yesterday, people have been complaining of receiving a rude reply whenever they send me emails, its like an auto responder and obviously not me. Its a work email address, I've changed my password and even the password on my control panel to no avail....Even did a virus scan on my laptop and its clean.

This even happens when my pc is switched off, i used my gmail account and got the same rude message, it says
via sylar.neowebserver.com

Could someone please help me here as my reputation is at stake pls!

Thanks in advance!

If you want, click on my name and I'll send a test email to see if I can get a few more clues.

okay, you can send an email to:

finance@alansaar.co.za and see what reply you get automatically!

Its weird hey. It seems like theres something on the mail server.

Also, this virus sends out the same email to people that havent even emailed me, just random people. It even sends it to myself, finance@alansaar.co.za!

Please help Sad

I see it now.

sylar.neowebserver.com is the email server for alansaar.co.za from my research.

Nothing's busted. That is, they appear to have done this at the email server. You'll have to ask them why.

Again, it's no virus appears to be in play here. It's your ISP's choice and as such you have to call them.
