Contacting Postmaster

  DerekL 16:08 24 Mar 2011

Can anybody tell me how to get in touch with the Postmaster in the Thunderbird email client.
Thanks in advance

Thunderbird is just a client.

Your "postmaster" will relate to your actual email account.

What is the problem you are having?

I received the following email:

Thank you for ordering from Puremobile Inc.

This message is to inform you that your order has been received
and is currently being processed.

Your order reference is 3306.
You will need this in all correspondence.
This receipt is NOT proof of purchase.
We will send a printed invoice by mail to your billing address.

You have chosen to pay by credit card.
Your card will be charged for the amount of 737.00 USD
and "Puremobile Inc." will appear next to the charge on your statement.
Your purchase information appears below in the file.

Puremobile Inc.

I have never heard of this Company and have not ordered any phones from them.

I replied to this message and got an email back saying it could not deliver it, and it said if you need further assistance please send email to Postmaster, so how do I do that.
Sorry it's long message.

It appears to be spam click here

I'd just delete it and ignore it.

It's spam or phishing. Ignore it and delete it.

VoG™ got there whilst I was typing.

Googling has shown others receiving the same email. They state there was an attachment.

Under no circumstances click on the attachment.

This is a means of infecting your computer. The Email address does not exist hence why you have received the message from your emails postmaster (the message cannot be sent)

You do not need to contact your postmaster.

Even if you have not clicked on any attachemnt it would be worth performing antivirus and malware scans.

This looks like a phishing e-mail. I suggest you don`t go any further with it and certainly don`t open any attachments or click on any links in the e-mail. Let us know if you have already done so.

Check with your bank that there aren`t any suspicious transactions being processed on your credit cards. (Particularly for puremobile inc)

All the big guns are out on this one! Hi all!

  Nontek 17:16 24 Mar 2011

Nevermind 'Postmaster', you need to urgently speak to your Bank Manager!

Thanks to everybody who answered, and Taff I did click on an attachment which was a PDF file which was a list of means of paying, like PayPal etc so I have done a complete System check with my Anti-Virus program but it hasn't found anything, and I'll get my wife to check with the bank.
Thanks again to everone.
