Suddenly odd emails from opendns with message !yours - no kidding
I'm working on my PC, and suddenly, I get emails from OpenDNS with the odd message
and in the DNS Updater the message that there's a mismatch between my DNS IP address and HTTP IP Address.
In addition, my DNS-o-matic History on this website has this:

I've seen the mismatch error before and it usually clears itself, but this time it is not clearing after some time.
Also, I never got emails from DNS-o-matic before -- the full email message is:
Below is the most recent response from your OpenDNS service registered at DNS-O-Matic.

to make sure your settings are correct. Your username is '[my user name]'.

Also, I've rebooted my Verison DSL modem router but got all of the above both before and after the reboot. Both before and after the reboot, the two OpenDNS numbers 220.127.116.11 and 18.104.22.168 are in my modem-router as my DNS picker. It's been that way for years.
Wow - this one is really weird. !yours indeed! Has OpenDNS been hacked?? Has my modem-router been hacked?
i'm getting this same error, so i deleted the network and create a new one. i got this error :
Your IP (22.214.171.124) does not match the one you are trying to verify.
thats not my ip. my real ip starts with 181.53...
and i'm not using any special connection or vpn, i'm on windows in secure mode with networking. and i get this message.
also https://db-ip.com/all/67.215.93 says that direction "126.96.36.199" allows to open dns services, and not me or any external connection.
when i visit https://ipinfo.io/ or any site to see my ip i always see my 181.53.
so , guys what cand i do?
Everyone - open a support ticket at https://support.opendns.com/requests/new so we let them know something is wrong.
Deleting your network is almost always counterproductive, and in this case it guarantees that you won't have any OpenDNS service until they resolve whatever changed on their backend. Please, no one delete your network as part of your troubleshooting process unless you've exhausted all possibilities, including posting questions here in this forum and opening a support ticket with OpenDNS. The only times I've seen deleting a network be of any use is if an existing network is associated with an OpenDNS account type that either no longer exists, or where the subscription has expired or not be renewed. It's not going to be of any use to you if you are using OpenDNS Home.
Whatever happened, something changed at OpenDNS that is preventing registration of new networks or updating addresses because something at OpenDNS is improperly detecting the address where the requests are coming from. Until they resolve that it doesn't appear as if anyone is going to be able to create a new network or update an address. On the plus side, OpenDNS is still providing recursive DNS service, and for those whose registered address is still valid it will continue filtering.
However, please, everyone let's NOT all open a ticket. That will only flood their engineers and staff with redundant tickets that will have to be resolved individually and manually. If they don't know about this issue already they'll know about it the first time they open a related ticket. Having hundreds of tickets behind it in the queue for the same issue won't speed up resolving that first ticket or the problem itself, it will only slow down resolving issues not related to this.
@glnz I'm not sure that the "inactive" portion of it has anything to do with this, but the symptoms you described in your initial post are the same as others are reporting and what I've observed on my own account.
Is the address currently registered for your network your actual IP address, or is it an old one? The "inactive" message may be related to some other issue that you are also experiencing.
Have you opened a support ticket yourself? You seem to have been the first one to post about this in the forum, in fact I was troubleshooting this on my end when I saw your message.
According to https://support.opendns.com/entries/101799428 the service has been restored.
