    Post @webhost helpdesk.. what the?

    NOTE: This probably has nothing to do with @Webhost whatsoever, so please do not look upon them as a bad company or whatever.




    Last night, I emailed them asking if they accepted switch or not.., I got a reply this morning saying they didn't, fair enough, ok.

    but now, I just got this in my email..:


    BOFH has responded to your help desk request.

    HAHAHA





    Thank you,

    Help Desk
    and the thing is, it's saying it came from my email, and my email servers.., i'm not too hot on this subject, but can someone imitate them?

    Maybe someone has my email password, or something...?

    thanks in advance.

    Compare the headers of the two messages. Actually, if you don't mind, post them here (just the headers, and feel free to edit any sensitive info).

    Actually, it is possible to make a message as if it came from your self. A simple CGI script can do this.
    Anyway, the email header will tell you.

    [email protected] is my secondary email, which I didn't give @webhost.. so this is probably a sign someone has my email password, is reading my mail, and sending it back or something?

    thanks.

    It seems that the domainresolve.net is the host you use for your domain gurugaming.com, so you may be true...

    yeah thats correct.

    I changed my email pass, and used different symbols + numbers in it, so hopefully.. issue resolved, a typical script kiddie brute forcing my email pass probably?
