Worried about your online security or recieved a notifiation from us of an issue? Choose from the sections below for help:

I keep receiving failed delivery messages in my email inbox, is someone trying to use my account?

Possibly, but not always. It may be possible your email account is compromised. For more information on compromised email accounts please check What to do if you think your email account has been accessed by someone else.

If you have already taken steps to secure your account but you’re still receiving non-delivery reports, then it is likely your account is subject to Email Spoofing – which is where a spammer forges the ‘From’ address in an email to make it look like it has come from your address. Unfortunately we are unable to stop this from occurring as this abuse does not originate from our network in most cases. For more information on Email Spoofing check lifehacker.com/how-spammers-spoof-your-email-address-and-how-to-prote-1579478914*
