I also received it this morning, and promptly deleted it along with a phishing email posing as Chase bank.

I also got it and deleted it. Some links looked okay but not sure about others.

The old classic skin had an option to add it through Google. If it says it is coming from [email protected] that is the only way you would be receiving them.

There should be some sort of option either at the top or in the footer or the top of the email to unsubscribe.

The forum itself also has newsletters. That would have an option to unsub in the footer.

It's probably just ME but I'm always suspicious of emails that seem out of place, has too many misspelled or omitted words and the context is odd. (reminds me of off shore customer service calls) I always think it's a scam or virus when I see that. I just saw one on this blog that had individual sentences in consecutive posts. Maybe it shouldn't but that sets off alarm bells with me. My laptop is well protected but nothing is hack proof. No offense to Harry and our legitimate friends across the pond, just being careful. I'm so paranoid that my FB account has one profile entry (High school)

Since this question has been resolved, I am going to go ahead and close this thread so that it doesn't continue to alert our tech support team.
