    Yes, I'm having the same issue.  Several hundred emails in IMAP folder are FOUND
    with this PUA.  Many of these messages are one or more years old, many of the
    emails are generated from with my office and are unlikely to contain malware. 
    I'm wondering how legit this is and whether to actually go through and remove
    hundreds of message from user's mail folder or to set .ign2 to ignore this
