Old email updates?

Postby karlm » Tue Nov 04, 2008 9:50 pm

Something weird is happening at the moment - I keep getting email responses to Topics I replied to months ago - and the board is informing me that something new has been posted in that topic.

For example:

From: atarizone@atarizone.com
Subject: Topic reply notification - "Running Beta & Running Platin Edition"
Date: Tue, November 4, 2008 4:48 pm
To: karlm <xxx@xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx>

Any ideas?

(Oh, and yes I was logged on here on Monday - which would have been the 2nd of November by the board's time if that helps)

cheers

karlm.

You're probably right Christos - but there's no way for me to check that. I've had about 3 or 4 similar ones in the last week with the same symptoms.

Just feel like that old thing with the knock at the door and then you get there and some knackerhead has run off down the road ...

Cheers

Yes, concurring with Protos. Spammer turns up with their bag of World of Yawncraft goodies to sell and attach to any random post from the past. You get an email, but by the time you check, I've already deleted said spammer :)
