Hello all! I hope I chose the right spot to post this issue (as it is to do with my email as well as the firewall). The problem is that my website host is automatically blocking my IP address because (they told me) an old defunct imap email is continually scanning a closed port. This is causing my hosting company to block my IP address and I cannot use my email or access my website.
So I know what the problem is, but I do not know how to fix it...can anyone guide me or offer suggestions about how to locate whatever email is scanning a closed port? (I went into my email and deleted old accounts). Not sure how to locate the source and then how to stop it from continuing to scan.
Thank you so very much in advance to anyone who can help me out! (I would describe myself as a savvy computer user when things are working, but a newbie when techincal issues arise...)
