I received an email this morning? Just seemed a little strange- @jamesholt did you send this message?

    Hover on the senders email address, you’ll soon see if it’s gardeners world , it will say so.
    if it was in you Spam/junk then it’s not genuine.

    says email is notifications @gardenersworld.com. It was not in my spam. It’s strange as I haven’t been on the forum for months. Just wondered if anyone else had had similar emails from random members suggesting some sort of hack.

    Have you checked your GW inbox (top of page, to the right)?  If you have your notifications set to send an email when you get a PM, that's what you would get if jamesholt has indeed sent you a PM.

    Of course Bob, forgot about that, it looks a bit different to the ones I get.

    Ha why didn’t I think of that!! It seems he has indeed sent the message. Bit of an odd message don’t you think? 😳

    I've turned all notifications off as I get quite enough unnecessary email as it is!  I'm sure email notifications must be useful to some, but not me!

    I like the email notifications, sometimes I just look at my emails and not in the site.  I do go through my emails every so often and unsubscribe from the ones I don’t want anymore.
