Are you having issues? 

Which version of the R6400 do you have? There was an update with netgear armor for some versions.

Are you having issues or just curious? 

If its version 1, I don't see the update to netgear armor. But even if it does get it, Armor is a subscription service

If you check your sent mail, has it been sent by you? 

I know they can spoof the email address that is the "from" receipient.
