Question: Rogue mini box email appeared on my iphone
This seems nasty and may help others. Very suddenly my Iphone 6 quit sending out my emails. I was getting a message that my user name or password was incorrect??? Repeat attempts to re-enter them were met with the same message yet email would come in just could not replay or send it back out. Investigating further under advanced settings on email I found something called minibox and a rogue username called firstname.lastname@example.org along with a blocked out password. All attempts to remove it were met with a message saying "server cannot be modified because it is primary outgoing server for account "Weather"". Totally bizarre. I found a reference to the imap issue and tried Settings/General/Profile and was able to delete it and now the email works.
Big question, how did this get into my iphone? why did it attach to the weather server? Who is spikingfakers? what information may have been stolen from my phone? Based on other messages to a similar issue with minibox can ios 11.1.1 keep incidents like this from happening again?
iPhone 6, iOS 11.1
