Quote from: perplexed on March 24, 2008, 12:11:06 PMI changed my email address a few months back to a brand new one for here, and now I get loads of spam, weird since only SMF has it. Not to get off topic or anything, but I changed it because someone complained my old one was bouncing. Now I get regular viagra spam along with my SMF notices
Quote from: Alenônimo on March 30, 2008, 11:44:48 AMAre SimpleMachines.org having problems with Yahoo e-mails too? If that's the case, maybe the users aren't to blame.I received so much bounced mails from yahoo.com and yahoo.com.br lately that I have banned (no posts and no registration) all accounts using it and asked to all users with Yahoo e-mails to change it to someone else.Not only that, but Yahoo have the nerve to tell me that the users are actually complaining about my forum notifications! I tried to contact Yahoo but I've never received any answer.
