I have had my work email copied to my personal yahoo account. This was done years ago. I don't read the work emails in the last few years, I just delete. I never stopped the copy rule. My work had a system conversion to a new server this past week. It has been problematic. The techs discovered I had a "delete incoming email" rule written. I was receiving 1000s of emails undeliverable in my work delete and sent folders. Plus I lost my work inbox. Nothing happened on my yahoo account. Now they are saying by copying my work to personal yahoo account, I caused the virus which subsequently shut down the system.
Is this possible? Can just having email copied from one to another cause a virus from the receiving account to contaminate the sending account?
I don't see how a delete or forward rules make an email undeliverable & even it they did, how would that execute a virus? Viruses through emails have to be run. Deleting an email doesn't make that happen.
I wouldn't accept blame for the virus. Instead I would ask them what happened to the anti virus software & why wasn't there a problem with the old server?
