Can you forward these emails to me? (Address is below)

You should not be getting duplicates. The only reason I can think of that would cause that is if the system 'thought' that there was an error sending it and tried again.

Is anyone else experiencing this problem?

I have been the last two days, get the same notification every 30 minutes or so for a message I deleted off
the board hours ago. I need it to stop or I'll have to block the gmail account it's coming from. Message pasted below:

***** DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL *****

The last few days I, too, am receiving the same email over and over for the same flight posted with no replies. A bit irritating, but I just delete and move on.

Everyone, we are working on this, diligently, so please accept our apologies and keep deleting. Not everyone is receiving these auto notification emails just some of you so we are doing our best to narrow it down.

Thank you for your patience.

Thanks, Debi, Jon, et. al., glad to know you are aware of it. Really, a minor annoyance, it is not difficult to hit the delete button!

It's certainly not the only unnecessary e-mail I get!!!

We have made some changes to the way the board handles emails. Hopefully, this will resolve the issue.

If anyone received duplicate messages dated on or after today, please let me know.
