I just received a not very convincing email phishing for account, password, and birthdate.

Does anyone want a copy of this? Here's a fragment of the text before it goes blithering on and asking for full account, password, and birthdate.

OK. Since this appears to be related to the webmail service, and there is another thread about it there, I am going to merge this over there.

As just seen on the webmail login page: Sep 10, 2008

[15:24 EDT] We have seen that scammers are sending out "phishing" emails again asking for SpamCop passwords. Please do not respond to these emails. There is nothing wrong with the system and we aren't asking for everyone's username and password. Thank you.
