Streamsend is a reliable email vendor, so the alert is surprising. We will pass this along to them so that they can address the security warning with Symantec.

Just following up that we heard back from Streamsend and they were able to sort this out with Symantec. The issue was a "false positive" warning, meaning there was not an actual threat but certain events had flagged it as a threat.
