Suspicious Gmail Activity on my account

by SkipM / January 14, 2009 9:06 PM PST

Hi - I just recently had my outlook asking me for my gmail password on a regular basis making me think I may have visitors - I work for a tech company as well. Here are the 2 IP's that show up besides my own (I use bellsouth dsl)
1 is via IMAP access: 166.194.86.146
and the 2nd is browser based: 72.21.196.64

I never or very rarely use a browser.

Hey - I've been experiencing the exact same thing on my account. I went to Google logged in via the web and was asked to verify and type the graphic letters. Went back to Outlook - all is well.
