    Email Avalanche

    Received about 2,000 identical Fathers Day emails from amazingribs.com today. I have had to block your email address as a consequence

          Welcome from Virginia. I only received one but spammers they are not. They will fix it.

            I keep meticulous track of all email sent from this server. No such emails were sent. However, they could have been sent by other means. Constant Contact etc.

            The most likely cause is pure spammer (spoofing the From address). I will contact you ( Randy S ) via email so you can send me an example for further investigation.

              Mystery solved.

              Looks like the fathers day "Smoke Signals" email got sent to Randy a bunch of times.

              Oops! Sorry about that. The person in charge of that has been notified.

                Randy, thanks for bringing this to our attention. Our newsletters (Smoke Signals and Hot From The Pit) are sent through a service Constant Contact which is supposed to ensure duplicates are not sent to the same email address so the fact that you got countless copies is a major glitch in their system. I apologize for the flood of emails and am reaching out to their tech team to get to the bottom of it.
