Email genuine or spam?

Just received the following

Subject Alert: An email addressed to you has been quarantined
From Email Alerting ServiceAdd contact

Email Alerting Service = unquarantine@quarantine.plus.com

Is this is genuine and from plusnet.?

This is the second one in two days?

Re: Email genuine or spam?

As regards to emails, does a sender know you have opened it?

@Minivanman you may find this of interest, particularly the section on email web beacons.

The fact is that it LOOKS like spam so I reckon that most people would just delete it.

I have seen them in the past and done that without even thinking about it.

@nigelcade - If you'd like to switch that off so emails don't get quarantined, you can do this at Http://email.plus.net then go to the Spam tab, if you switch Anti Virus Filtering to 'No' we won't scan/quarantine the emails.

I'm actually quite happy with them being quarantined; now I know what is happening.
