An i being too cautious?
Answer

The following is an email that i tried to send to "webmaster@(dho)" but it got bounced.

Hi, 
I received this email which i have my doubts about. The From address looks kosher and (for what it's worth) I don't know the writer. I don't know my Dharma overground address - the hint address in the Reply box - so i offed in via the browser. There I saw no message from Mr Corbeil, hence this email.
Hope this is not actually a matter to worry you...


Now,  back to my inbox.

Yeah, I got one also (an email that lead to no message), which means everone got one also, likely.

I emailed the user and will see if they can shed light on this. It is possible they were trying to figure it out and did something wrong.

We will see.

As you've probably noticed,  it's happening again today,  this time from a Mr Cummings!

Yeah, I am going to sort this out with the app developer and lock out regular users from being able to send PMs to the whole group.

This has taken hours of time so far to try to sort out. Ah, the public, finding ways to use software you didn't anticipate clearly. A warning message has been created at the top of the forum.

In the meantime, the question is to delete or lock out the PM portlet: and, if it happens again, I will until I can get this sorted out. Thoughts?
