    I received an e-mail saying that the 'old e-mail version' (classic) is being cancelled and that I should sign up for the NEW version. I clicked on the link and my computer said that was NOT A TRUSTED SITE, DO NOT OPEN. What gives????

    Hello,

    It sounds like you received a phishing email designed to steal your account information.

    Do not click links in unexpected emails.

    If you clicked through the warnings your acocunt may have been compromised.

    Please follow the instructions in this guide:
