    Default Full mailbox?

    Received an email today from admin@jeruselemcrew.com, telling me my "mailbox was almost full (399MB) out of a maximum of 439MB. Please use our URL to increase your mailbox size".

    Sounds like rubbish to me, my mailbox has only about 4MB of emails in it.

    Anyone heard of this one?

    If you hover the mouse over the link, the actual URL can be seen and is usually nothing to do with your email provider. These emails were common years ago but I haven't had one for a long time.

    Thanks for the comments. Just wondered if anyone else had seen this sort of thing recently. It is certainly rubbish, and has now been deleted.

    Seen them a bunch of times.

    It's a phishing scam to get your email password.
    Non-system disk or disk error. Replace and strike any key when ready.
