Hi there,

Have you tried sending an email to orcon using web based email, instead of local client (assuming you are using a local client).

Are you replying to an email that one of their support team sent you? Or composing a new message to them?
Does your signature contact a graphic at all? Any information you can provider about the email you are sending would be excellent.

Actually it looks like this could be a new issue with the clamxav update for the mail server Orcon are running.
Looking at this website - http://www.zimbra.com/forums/administrators/36295-solved-every-new-message-flagged-exploit-pdf-9669-nothing-getting-through.html

People had the same issue after an update on their mail server yesterday it has a suggestion on how to fix it but it is a server side fix. Perhaps someone from Orcon will read this and be able to provide some feedback?

As a user try sending a Plain Text email rather than HTML formatted email and apparently it will go through.
Let us know how you get on.

Can't send plain texts, never wrote that into the website, its html only.

I will try resending them later in the day when it has been sorted out.

We are on Orcon and were getting this all yesterday.  Today it seems to be fixed.  Did a search this morning and found  we are not alone . http://forum.avast.com/index.php?topic=53225.0

 Maybe something to do with Elvis turned 75..
