|always sending messages
on Saturday, November 01, 2003 at 8:31:26 AM (EST)
I am a home user with 2 pc's using a broadband connection and Win98.
Lansuite seems to be constantly trying to send messages - some get sent, others 'cannot be delivered' but I don't know where these messages are coming from and where they are going to.
I have only recently ticked 'relay for 602 pro users only'. Before this time, no relay options were ticked.
When I occasionally had problems like this before I used to go into queue management and delete everything in the queue (there were no messages I had sent in here - all seem to be spam-like, and they didn't build up over time - they all seemed to arrive suddenly together).
Now, lansuite hangs when I try to access queue management. Is there a way I can clear the queue through a backdoor? And what, where and how are these messages being sent? Can I view them - to see where they are going to, coming from?
Is it a virus? I have a fully up to date Norton antivirus installed and it has not detected anything.
I am very confused...
PS. I have just upgraded to Lansuite '2003' but the problem still persists.

I would surjest scaning both computers with Adaware and Spybot. You may have a trojan or malware/spyware or your systems.
You can see all mail sent or recieved in the file c:\lansuite\lansuite.csv. The file can be viewed using notepad, but will look better if you use a spreadsheet program, like MS Excel or Software602's PCsuite.
Have you tried re-installing LanSuite, to try and correct your queue management problem? Also have you tried using the web acess: http://127.0.0.1/admin, this address will work on the machine you have installed LanSuite.
If you are not using a firewall, i would recommend you install one. Zonealarm is a good free one (www.zonealarm.com); but there are others. This is what is known as an application level firewall. If an unknown application startups up on your machine, it will give you a change to stop it.

You should check if only the Lan suite users are alowed to send e-mails.
Otherwise there may be others sending emails, like spam.
Hope this help
