    I'm not worried about that... I saw it and figured I'd let you guys know, and try to stay on top of it. You know, help you guys out a bit =D

    You may want to check to see if any Bots or other programs may have access to your database to see who has the email notification enabled.

    its random indeed cause i recall like 90% of the forum users use email notifications.

    and even if use that i am sure sixen and folks are smart enough to protect their comps.

    Well I don't let Diablofans notify me by e-mail whenever a PM comes in, but yet I have received one. Maybe the bot scans through the Blogs and picks users from there?

    Edit: Oh wait never mind that last part. I see lots of you haven't posted any blog.

    How about just going to the member list and picking people are random? Or type http://www.diablofans.com/forums/private.php?do=newpm&u=xxxxx and replace the x'es with a random number?

    Could probably backfire, if people get problems with registering, permissions, or need to be contacted by a mod. Not very good if they can't respond.

    So you want to give us all the spam? :P

    I suppose that could be a solution though.

    LOL.

    no i dont want to give you all of the *ahem* spam

    but then again the malicious pms are a issue big enough to warrant that.

    *hmm* we need coffee filters

    they work well against *literal spam*

    I do not recall reading what the email notification says since I delete the few I get. Do they have the full message or just a generic response saying somebody sent you a pm and click here to go to the Diablofans site to read the PM.

    Full message, though I don't remember how it handles quotes and images. Obviously the images are not displayed in the mail though.

    Maybe just have a generic email notification to be sent that you have a PM.

    No way, I greatly use the fact that PM's do contain the original text. It lets me keep messeges even after I delete them fom dfans. That's one feature I do not want removed.
