Earlier today I posted the following thread on this forum: click here=
I have just received an email (not an e-notification of a response to my thread)direct from an unknown source into my inbox. How come? Sorry if there is a logical explanation to this but I have never had such a direct communication generated by this forum before. Paranoia rules!!!!!
Thanks to VoG and Technotiger for the re-assurance. Technotiger - you beat me to it. I am still a tad suspicious and will delete the email. If the sender still wishes to offer assistance then he can respond in the appropriate manner and request my permission to contact me direct.
I'm afraid its gone p;3. I think it may have had on it that it was from the system but as it was also offering to send me a .dll file,as an attachment,if I was still looking for one,and I am not in the habit of accepting attachments from unknown sources,I decided to play safe and get rid or it. Thanks for pointing out the correct procedure should I receive any other similar emails.I will respond accordingly next time.
I tend towards the email originating from some well meaning forum member and that I was yellow enveloped(it was my default email address),but why not contact me through the correct channels? Anyway,these days,I take no chances and it was binned. If it was a well intended gesture then I am sorry but better to be safe than sorry.
