Is e10 a registrar? Because it has, on the face of it, nothing to do
with Network Solutions, the purported source of the e-mail. I would say
a message claiming to be from Network Solutions, but actually coming
from a company called e-Dialog, and asking for "enter your password", is
conclusive enough to be counted as phishing.
