Emailing the addresses fakead@moneysavingexpert.com and forumteam@moneysavingexpert.com have both just given a delivery failure notice. Is it their problem or mine?

    I emailed the second one of the email addresses you’ve given above yesterday and I didn’t get any messages about non-delivery. Mind you, I didn’t get a ‘message received’ notification either. 

    would've . . . could've . . . should've . . .

    There's definitely no 'a' in 'definitely'.

    Thanks for your reply. I am trying to forward a fake Martin Lewis phishing email. I have just tried again and still have the same problem with both email addresses.  The error message is:
     
    (MAILER-DAEMON@aol.com)To:you
    554: Email rejected due to security policies - 

    Does anyone have any ideas?

    Yes - nothing to do with this site anyway - just mark as spam/block sender/repeat when the next one comes

    Ok, I have answered my own question. I was able to send a jpg screen grab of the fake email and send it as an attachment without problems.
    It looks like something in the email was triggering a security alert when I tried to forward it.
    It's a shame it didn't do that to stop it getting to my inbox in the first place.

    Thanks for your reply and suggestions. I was trying to forward this spam/[phishing email as suggested on this site. I have had a few similar ones lately all from different addresses, so blocking doesn't really help.
