Don't know what the warning is haven't seen that before but what does annoy me is that when you reset your password they send your new password in an email in clear unprotected, not encrypted text. So insecure that it is not funny. Have asked them to change this but to no avail. So your new password is very insecure anyway.  Jeff

Certainly understand where you're coming from on that Jeff.
We have some pretty major changes for Hosted planned to come later this year and one aspect of that is to address this process.

I have just received this error to and am concerned. I tried to back up 4 times and it wont let me backup. I am scared to log out in case I can't get back in and am worried I have  not up to date back up.
