I received an email today from the following address: admin@www.ulcseminary.org. Since that looked like the correct email, I opened it and it was an ad for viagra etc etc.
This discussion board and website seem to be getting very vulnerable of late and I am wondering just how secure are we logging in here?

there isn't alot of anything we can do about being spammed.as i said before,i delete or report them as i find them.as far as spam emails,i have gotten one too,and deleted it.usually if it's a legit email from admin,it will say(for example)amy@ulc seminary,or josh@ulc seminary.quite a few of us have an address here,so it will usually have a name in front of the email address.

if someone has accessed the data base for here,then all they got was a list of names,and use the seminary to send the emails.if you think it's a spam email,delete it.

thanks, mark, for getting back to me. Yes I know to delete spam and seldom open, but I thought ulcseminary.com was here so of course I checked (actually because of the topic info, I thought I was finally getting an answer to a question I had posed on here a while back)
I think I will just delete any emails from that addy and only deal with online postings
thanks again
Donna
