Basically, the my Geekmail notification is showing that I have 6 unread mail when I really have none. I've had this for about 24 hours now as of time of posting. Any help, please?

every time this comes up
the user has pending Geekmails
those Geekmails are on other pages
try clicking to page 2, then page 3 and so on

Nope, that definitely wasn't the cause as I log onto BGG pretty frequently to notice something like that.

Whatever it was, the bug's been fixed for me. Thanks

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory.

I'm having the opposite problem!

I have my Geekmail set to forward to my email account.

Two days ago I received six identical email messages which were forwarded by the BoardGameGeek MessageCenter.

The really strange thing is that none of these messages actually turned up as Geekmail in my Mailbox.

Does anyone have any ideas about what's going on with that?

Sound like they were from a geekmail spammer whose account was recently deleted (which in turn deletes all geekmails which they've sent).

The account was deleted as a spammer due to sending out hundreds (possibly thousands) of soliciting geekmails like the ones you received. Deleting an account as a spammer removes all of the geekmails sent as well.
