Other than using the bcc feature on Outlook, what would be the best way for me to handle the security and privacy of the holiday card mailing list?
Check out this mailing list software at http://www.group-mail.com/asp/common/editions.asp. There is a free edition that sends out 100 recipients per send. The software sends out one email per email address. If you have 50 email addresses, then it will send out 50 emails vs. 1 email with email addresses in BCC/CC.
A spammer signed up yesterday and spammed the private messaging system. The activity was detected/reported to TT immediately. All private messages sent by this account along with the account were deleted. If you received an email notification of a private message at TT, please discard. We will look into safeguarding this feature.
Thank you all for reporting.
To combat spam postings, a new feature has been implemented. Members with postings count of 500+ will see a checkbox in the Report window to immediately hide the spam posting from the board until Administrator can permanently delete it.
Thank you for your participation in making our board a spam-free place.
