I keep receiving SPAM EMAIL into my contiki account mailbox. Wth is up with that? Is there anyway to delete these messages from my mailbox? I have looked and cannot see that option. Any assistance with this would be greatly appreciated; thanks.

    Hey guys, I’ve got our developers looking in to this – even I’m not immune to being asked if I want a wife! ;)
    Out of interest, how many are you getting? 1, 2, several?

    I also am getting spam. Jan 30, Feb 5, Feb6 and Feb 7. I think it has something to do with the new layout. It is easier for spam programs to spider for usernames and send messages.

    Beks, I have 2.
    Another issue is that there is no way to delete the messages, can we get that option added?

    He could take us all on a tour for that! Could you do me a favour and PM me the username?

    On a serious note, everyone knows NOT to fall for these scams, right? (whether here or anywhere else). It’s just a ruse to get your money.
