    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 e100.net, on port 993 (IMAP).

    I use Google Apps for Business as my provider. e100.net 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

    Oh wow, this is why you should never stay up until 4am playing with software, folks.

    It's 1e100.net, owned by Google.

    *skulks away very embarrassed* :D :D

    Outlook was definitely changed by the updates yesterday. I had that warning on 2 machines.
