E-mails show up as Phishing

  Border View 11:04 29 Aug 2010

I run with Windows XP home SP3. I have Avast Anti virus and Sunbelt Personal firewall (paid for version. My ISP is o2 and when I am away from home I use a 3 mobile broadband dongle. At home I use outlook express with my o2 e-mail address but when using the 3 mobile broadband dongle use my yahoo e-mail address.

The problem is my friends have reported that when they receive my e-mails they show up in bright red font with a warning that this e-mail is suspicious and could be a phishing e-mail.

Obviously my e-mails are not but how do I overcome this problem. I dont even know if some of my e-mails get through because of friends security systems.

Your help would be appreciated.

Get your friends to add your email address to the 'Safe Senders List', they can do that by right-clicking on your email in their Inbox and choosing the option from the menu. It's possible that, in the past, you have sent them an email with the characteristics of a phishing email (a certain subject or phrase maybe) that their email security has picked up on.
