Members stated to me - Getting a simple christian and surname in the "FROM", changes with each message I get. Body of message is a link, thats it, not text just a link Deleted same.

Who are the emails from? Have they tried blocking the email address?

I will ask. One person received them from yahoo so I have suggested that everyone re-set passwords and I am now vetting membership more closely.

what they are spamming their email or their PM on the forum.
If they are being spammed on the forum, then just ban the member who is sending them.

If they are being spammed in the email, you should tell the member or members not allow their email to be shown in their profile etc.. If you have your email showing there is really no way to prevent anyone from sending anything to it, But i am not exactly sure if that's what your saying or not?

Like base said keep us updated, and nice to see you koimaster Smile Happy new year to ya Very good

Oh and like mentioned above, be sure the flag any unwanted email as spam, so at least it will be blocked or go to their spam folder in their email
