Hey Folks,

I just had 391 posts from support@envato.com & t___s@gmail.com.

I just sent off the form for the moderator application when this happened.

Not complaining here just thought I’d tell you.

Has this happened to anyone else?

George

Hey guys. A message has been sent because we applied for community moderator, but it wasn’t sent using BCC , when that happened, we got ping backs from everyone included in that mail. I got my iCloud account locked for 24 hours for spamming after getting around 500 e-mails.

Relax. Just delete them :)

Do not reply to the first e-mail you got or any whatsoever. You’ll get another 300 e-mails.

That’s not good at all. Can you explain what’s going on? I’ll have to get someone to fix this.

You can’t do anything now. Someone sent an e-mail from support and did not BCC , but included everyone in the TO: field. Everyone that replies, we all get e-mails… :| There is nothing to be done, but wait for it to die down. My account is temporarily locked :|

It seems anytime someone replies to it, the support@envato.com emails it to everyone, including itself, and it’s being a bit recursive so I get a LOT of emails constantly.

Hope you can fix it soon – you ARE the King, so it should be no trouble :P
