spam or phishing mails from a.com???

Postby Lavanda » Thu Mar 07, 2024 1:04 pm

I have three messages in my junk box from [email protected]

What's the ws bit? Are these real messages from this site?

I've not clicked on them in case they are nasty virus things.

Hi Levanda,

Andaluciaws.com is the web services company that is the part of Andalucia.com group.
We use the email you mention to manage some of the forum activity such as requests to activate a newly registered account.
We actually need to change it over to an andalucia.com email as it is a little confusing.

Either way we don't sent out spam emails so the two have receive are probably not from us.
Forward them back to us if you wish and we will confirm this.

I had enough confidence to click on the ws messages and they seem to be the same as the non-ws messages — telling me I had a reply to whatever I was posting about. I was just cautious and a bit confused but everything seems to be all right. Thank you.
