Hello and greetings:
After suffering multipe issues for far too long, my expert help back home advised a total wipe clean of my relatively new HDD. Everything was fine when completed, until I left home, used wifi at a hotel in Canada then an apartment in Mexico. My rural home requires dial up only. I'm not sure which location was the source, since the symptoms did not begin until I tried sending email home, for the first time since leaving home, at my current location in Mexico.
I got this error message as follows............an error occured sending email: The mail server sent an incorrect greeting: cmta9.telus.net TELUS ESMTP server not available, your ip is blacklisted by spanhaus. Go to http:www. X spamhaus. X org/query/bl?ip= X 22.214.171.124.
I have left long spaces and X's in this url as I don't want it to turn into a link to this foul site. I went there (dumb, dumb, dumb!) and folowed several links, as instructed, which promised help. None ever appeared. Later, visiting Kaspersky for assistance, I find their best advice is pay the creeps and move on! The person posting the initial request, who positively ID'd spamhaus as her infection, returned with a link to one Fabian Wosar who has a tool that will fix it. Everyone raved about it. I ran the tool and it says there is no infection. Yes there is, since the error message still apears when I try sending email asking me to go to the same site. Anything I find on this issue says it is really, really nasty.
I have a 2007 Dell Vostro 1500, XP SP3, Two hdd's, Firefox, Thundebird, Kaspersky Pure 2014,
Thank you in adavance for any help and advise.
