"Webmail Security - Processing of Incoming Email Stopped" Phishing Scam
The email message below, which claims that the processing of the recipients' emails has stopped and their accounts might be forced to be locked up or disabled, is a phishing scam. The fake or phishing email message was NOT sent by the recipients' email account administrator or security team, but by cybercriminals, who are attempting to trick their potential victims into sending them their email account usernames and passwords. Therefore, recipients of the fraudulent email message should delete it and not follow the instructions into it.
