+JoergWausW Posted January 7, 2018 Share Posted January 7, 2018 The notification email for new messages can be answered directly from your email-program. Sadly, I did this a couple times, instead of opening the message center in the browser. Problem is: Sadly, my email account was hacked some time ago, and - next to a lot more others - some email addresses that were created to answer to the message center are used now to send spam. This spam now shows up in the message center in my geocaching account, and, of course, in the accounts of those people I used the reply by email feature with. They even get a notification email with a copy of the spam included - resulting in spam "provided" by geocaching.com... and I didn't even send it - plus I'm not aware of it as long as I don't open my message center in the browser. So I'm looking for a solution that this spam stops. Is it possible to disable those specific message center email addresses from working? I would not have a problem communicating to the affected people browser only or app only, because I hardly ever used the reply to email option at all... (or is this email address used in the app?) (yes, I know that it was not a good idea to be hacked. I must have used the same password for some internet service that I also used for my email account - this some-service was hacked, and the evil guys got my account-password combination... I'll never know what service that was... ) Quote Link to comment
