Bogus Emails Flying In

Hello all,

 

I've started to get quite a few bogus emails that say something like "I've added you to my address book"

Using outlook, I try to designate them as junk but an error comes back that the email address or domain is invalid. If someone would take pity on a newbie and help me decipher this greek below to come up with a course of action/plan of attack, I would be eternally grateful.

 

thanks,

brent

After taking a quick look at the email and your website, I would take a wild guess and say those are emails from your guestbook.

 

If you look at the email and date it was sent and then look at your guestbook. The last entry there matches the email you posted here.

 

So, look in you setup of your guestbook and turn off the auto-email feature and those emails will stop.

Wow, I feel like an idiot. I would kick myself in the backside if only I could reach. Thanks for showing me what was right there & I couldn't see. I'm spamming myself, dangit!

 

My sincere thanks,

Brent
