    i use operas email client for yahoo through pop.

    nod reports phising trojan everytime opera checks the email.

    solution is to close connection, then opera pop up another error message.

    anyway to stop this?

    That's strange, you don't get a Delete button. Have you tried playing around with the IMON POP3 Compatability setup?

    That's because the phising trojan (actaually a harmless html email) was picked up by the HTTP scanner upon an attempt to open/download an infected email via webmail.

    That was what I first thought when I saw that warning window, but he said he uses "yahoo through pop", not webmail. o_O

    It definitely came from the HTTP scanner - you can see a portion of a url there.

    Yeah, you're right.

    Could it be that this e-mail is already in his mailbox? Opera opens up this e-mail message, which contains HTML, and this is what IMON is picking up? If so, just deleting the e-mail message would probably fix the problem.

    lost netconnection for a few days..

    but yes,-i use opera and pop access with yahoo. for that i use a software "mrpostman", that also retrieves a hotmail account.

    i dont access yahoo webmail, so it maybe is a message already in the inbox that causes it

    1. click the "display warning window" button - select "don't display for another 10 minutes"

    2. navigate to your bulk email folder in opera, find and delete the offending message (all of them?).

    that doesnt help,- deleted every bad\spam email in the account and from the trash.

    only solution is to set opera m2 mail client to an active hotmail adress.

    if theres only 1 adress in opera m2, and its yahoo,you will get this nod warning at every check. tested it on another pc,-pretty annoying

    Maybe there is an e-mail stuck on the server that is not showing up in your M2 list? What happens if check your Yahoo POP3 mail using another e-mail client, like Outlook Express, Thunderbird, etc.?

    i tried yahoopops, when nod warns about virus in yahoo i can delete it.

    then i check the message in opera, and says nod deleted attachement.

    guess yahoopos is a better alternative
