Hi
got a spam mail from waryor@gmail.com with a reply set to rhardee8@gmail.com, I didn't consider it a problem when I got the first mail but now after several mails it's obviously that someone misuses the boards email function to send out spam.
Content of the latest mail is:
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Hello C. Hecht,

The following is an e-mail sent to you by R Hardee via your account on
"ACWGC Forums". If this message is spam, contains abusive or other comments
you find offensive please contact the webmaster of the board at the
following address:

waryor@gmail.com

Include this full e-mail (particularly the headers). Please note that the
reply address to this e-mail has been set to that of R Hardee.

Message sent to you follows
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

payday loan <a href="http://paydayloan.us.org">faxless payday loan</a> fast
quick loans faxless payday loans
+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

I would like to know if I'm the only one to get such mails send from waryor@gmail.com.

I searched for a member and found a Brig. Gen. Robert Hardee that uses the reply address rhardee8@gmail.com that was set in this spam mail. I even set him to my foe list but that didn't stop such mails from coming in.
Hopefully the mails send by the boards mail function can be followed by someone with Admin rights to verify that this is the member who's account is used for spaming. In that case I hope the account is suspended to stop the spam.

I'm getting them too, almost daily now. Trying to see if my Outlook settings will block it but may have to block all emails from this domain to stop it.

I received one such email on Wednesday, but none since. I also have noticed that on at least three times in the last week that this forum becomes unavailable for about 30-minute stretches of time.

That the board is unavailable did already start in early January.
As I posted here:
http://wargame.ch/board/acwgc/viewtopic.php?f=4&t=20884
at one point we did had a roll back.

That email problem has been solved. Hopefully, the boards will not allow the emails.
