    ok the other day my wife goes to send email.it says it can't be sent because fortiguard is blocking because of spam.

    any ideas? we are notspamming. also ran a few programs to see if someone isdoing from her one of them and they are clear.

    this is the error: 554 5.7.1 This message has been blocked because it is from a FortiGuard - AntiSpam black IP address.(connection black ip 66.254.193.000)

    Also, scan your system for malware. It's very common for undetected malware to be covertly sending Spam from an infected PC. F-Secure's online scanner is one way to get a "second opinion" (use Internet Explorer since this scanner uses ActiveX).
