Dear members of Web4Ren Forum (W4RF),
 
somebody (not a member of W4RF) somehow succeeded to take a hold of the email-sending capabilities of W4RF and tried to use that hold (half successfully) to send SPAM.
 
To prevent that this is done again (which would result in our server - including W4RF -  being blocked completely from outside access) I will have to turn off the email-sending capabilities of W4RF more or less at once (at least until I have understood how the break in occurred and how to close the hole used).
 
So you won't receive email notifications for updates of threads and/or sections "watched" by you from now on to some time in a perhaps rather remote future. Sorry about that! I suggest that you use W4RF's RSS-feeds instead for the near and middle future.
 
Sorry about all that!!!
 
Please accept my apologies!
 
   Best wishes, cordial greetings
 
Heinrich (C. Kuhn)

Also: If you try to send a topic from W4RF to somebody using W4RF's built-in email capabilities: such a mail will not be sent. W4RF's email sending capabilities have been cut. Had to. Sorry!
