Hi Guys,

Receiving the following error:

The server returned an unexpected transaction ID when broadcasting the transaction.
Consider trying to connect to a different server, or updating Electrum.

The server returned unexpected transaction ID.

I am aware of the latest phishing scam and have selected servers from the supported lists. However, still getting the error.

Can anyone please offer any advice on how to proceed with send transactions or if anyone else is experiencing the same?

Thanks

Since you've received that message, you must be using a "safe" version (v3.3.3 or the latest) and connected to a malicious server.

Just like the message said, connect to a different server and try again.
I'm not experiencing the issue since I'm sticking to one server.

So I got it working, I did not realise that selecting the host in the server tab was not selecting that server. I actually had to write the server address.

I used e.keff.org and sent Tx straight away. :-)

"Selecting" like click to highlight? Yes it won't be selected that way.
Aside from manually writing the server address/IP, you can also right-click and select "use as server".

You can lock this topic now if you don't have any other concerns.

I just had the same issue myself.  Didn't on my first transaction this morning but tried another transaction just now and yes got the same.

'The server returned an unexpected transaction ID when broadcasting the transaction.
Consider trying to connect to a different server, or updating Electrum.

The server returned unexpected transaction ID'

Used the server e.keff.org as stated and it worked fine.

My question is if I had been trying to connect to a "malicious server" will there be any further problems in the future.
As does 'this and if' was a malicious server now have my wallet details?

No. All the malicious server could do is send fake messages whenever you try to send a transaction (this on versions < 3.3). That's all.

As does 'this and if' was a malicious server now have my wallet details?
All they can possibly know is your wallet addresses and IP address (all Electrum servers you connect can know that). Nothing is at risk.
