Alert - Your password will expire
« on: June 05, 2023, 02:07:52 PM »
Hi guys - I don't know if this is spam, but I've had the accounts for several years without this...until now... It's a personal domain with several email addresses which all run through RoundCube since Squirrel went away. Now one (of several) receives an email, and I've just spent an hour in panic because "everything will die today!" -- yet, maybe not, and it's not in my first look at the forum....

to:  UserTest
from: Roundcube Webmail <cr753jw1dre1e@mailer.mailingboss.net>
subject: #Your password will expire in 1 day(s) !
body:  <<roundcube icon, no text>>
           Verification Required !  (in large bold font)
           Your emailbox will be temporarily blocked to continue using  Webmail
           Please log into your portal and follow the instructions in order to avoid
           any interruption to your mailbox.
           If you are having issues that you can’t resolve using the articles in the
           support site you should
           LOGIN (hyperlink to a long address)
           <<much white space>>
           To unsubscribe from this list, please use this link:
           <<hyperlink to stats.mailingboss.com with unsubscribe, string of zeros,
                   and number & letter string>>
           Default Company

The more I look at this, the more it smells like phish...  so, is it safe to ignore, or is this legit??

Thanks!

Its 100% a spam phishing attempt. There has been a lot of similar emails lately. Please don't click on the link and if you did click on the link contact your email provider and change your password directly on your mail providers site.
