If you use Avast home and have gone to the Avast site to get a key for Avast Home recently. And havent received the key yet. The reason:

Xnet have (for one reason or another), blocked the Avast register email addy, and flagged it as a phishing email. I requested a key last week (more than 72 hrs ago). Using my normal email. I never received it. So, requested another email today, using Gmail. About 4 hrs later, I went to the Gmail site. And voila. Since I forward Gmail emails to my normal email, the key in the forwarded email was stuck in Gmail. And a bounced email saying Xnet has rejected the email (from Avast) because it's a phishing email. So, deleted it.

I rang Xnet later, to tell them. Then sent a copy of what it said in Gmail in an email. Just waiting to hear back from them, to see WHY they've blocked emails from Avast

False positive from their detection systems I suppose

Well its something, and when I rang Xnet didnt know anything about it (typical) :lol: If someone had told them previously, they wouldnt have asked for a copy of the email I received in Gmail about it

Which is why I'd be suspicious of it being an automated system error, rather than them blocking it on purpose
