    Hi all,

    Very confused at the moment. ESET Smart Security 5 HIPS process has alerted me upon launching Outlook that the file has changed. It may have - today was patch Tuesday..

    But then it wants to connect to the address shown in the screenshot, a subdomain of, on port 993 (IMAP).

    I use Google Apps for Business as my provider. is a domain registered in China, cue alarm bells.

    ESET scan shows nothing untoward on this Win 7 64bit system. Neither does a Hitman Pro scan.

    Any one know what's going on? Did the updates today change Outlook's files at all?

    Thanks in advance
