Hi Warren,

Thank you for joining me in a private chat and for clearing security, glad you were able to get back into the Email account, was this by running a Virus scan on the devices then changing the password to something unique and not used before or did you manage to change the password within your Online Account?



Hi Paul

The agent helping me had to manually change the password, no reason provided, but all is good as I have the email address back.

I run a paid version of Malwarebytes and Sophos AV on our personal machines so not sure how it was flagged, may have been on the mobile.

Thanks for your follow up, appreciated. Have a great day.


Hi @WarrenBartram,

Thanks for your update on this, and for clearing up what has happened. I'm really sorry to hear the password was changed with no reason or notice but I am glad you have now regained access.

Please let us know if you need anything else, or have any further issues on one of our team/community will be happy to help out.
