Flagging up

I've had a spam email. Normally i have email notifications on for PM. A few weeks ago i had a spam email. No idea what this means but when i first saw it i had already seen the message. Has anyone else had this before?
Some people think i am unhappy. I'm not. I just approach silence in the world that never stops talking

    Thanks for flagging this with us Abi. :) What did the spam email say, exactly? Could you copy it into this thread or into a PM for us?

    Cheers Abi - I've just seen the PM. It looks like this might be a from back when we tested Discord. Seems genuine. :)

    Because of the link we sent out, your email inbox might have marked it as spam when it wasn't. They do that sometimes to protect against harmful links. Sometimes things that aren't spam get caught up in the filter. :rolleyes:

    I had this email earlier today. Look proper, click the links takes you no where. Has anyone else had this email?
    Sooo... this was actually us testing a new version of the boards. :yeees: We had no idea you guys would get notifications for our test posts! We'll put an announcement up about this soon, but the boards URL will be changing. More on that to come, but in the meantime you can ignore any notifications for threads that start with the URL 'themix.org.uk/communities/forum'. :)

    Hey Abi,

    Just an update here - we've looked into this but we're not sure what's caused it. Apologies that we don't have a better answer! If it happens again though, do let us know. :)
