    I wasnt sure where to post this, so I hope this is right. I got an email today and it said that the emails that BYC is sending me keep getting kicked back. I clicked on the link, and it wanted me to put in my email address and password. I DIDNT put it in. This sounds like phishing. Is this something that you guys sent out, or is someone trying to phish me?

    PS I have been getting my notifications of thread postings, though I have subscribed to several threads, is is possible that my email IS kicking back some of them, b/c it thinks they are spam?
    Thanks [​IMG]

    Sorry, that was my fault. [​IMG]

    We had received about 50 bounceback emails from a few email addresses (basically they said your email address was invalid).

    But, I guess the email went through, so you should be just fine. Maybe your email server / provider was just having some problems for a few hours.

    Thanks for getting back to me. [​IMG] No big deal, Just wanted to make sure that it wasnt phishing, and that if it was, I would give you a heads up on it.

    could it be that I have subscribed to too many threads? [​IMG]

    When you are typing a message if you look to the right there is a "Smilies" [show].

    You click on the show and there they are.[​IMG]

    ETC: I don't know my right from my left anymore......​
