    Phishing message

    Just received latest WSNewsletter with a warning from WLM that this is "Suspected phishing message." This message looks like a
    phishing scam and has been blocked for your safety.
    Why would I suddenly get this message and how do I fix?

    There should be a place/setting in WLM to "whitelist" an address or site, most all E-Clients have the setting.

    I got the same message last week. I use Windows Live Mail for my email accounts. Windows Secrets arrives via Comcast mail. I OK'd WS as safe, but also wondered why I had to after 3 years.

    Security is a constantly evolving thing, and it's not an exact science. Who knows what factors went into the decision that that was a suspicious email?

    The only way to guarantee that you will always get specific emails is to whitelist the email addresses or domains.
