phpbb.com Email Spam?

Post by -FN- »

I keep getting the "Welcome to area51 Forums" every 5 minutes. So far I have 70 identical emails in my inbox and it's getting a bit annoying - can someone here sort that out? Thanks.

I think you should post the full email with details (headers) for admins to see the trouble...

You might want to hide YOUR email in that post...

I had the same problem about a week ago ... but mine was with the 'subscription' to a topic.
I got about 2 times 10 mails for the same thing (so 20 mails for 2 topics ;))
Greetzzz,
