Private Message Notification Scary

Postby jillybee72 » March 12th, 2010, 2:43 am

Hello.

I received a private message from Andy Crouch because he needed my help completing his underground tunnel and nightclub. Look, that part is not important. The notification I got at my hotmail account was from support@cynistar.net (an email address unknown to me) and the subject was: New Private Message has arrived‏.

Is there any way to customize that text so that it looks less like horrific spam hell? Like "New Private Message on the Austin Improv Forum" o algo?

Not that I'm aware of. I've been getting these for years now. Just put it on your safe list and effing deal with it. :D


Then again I may be blowing smoke. Brad, Bob?

Cynistar.net is owned by the benevolent dictator of these forums, Bob. It is not spam, it is weird-looking, and sounds vaguely sinister, but it's perfectly normal.

Perhaps it can be modified?

I think we should all send Jill private messages.

And Jill, I hope you know that PM was a joke. I'm not really watching you as far as you know.
