    Within a very short time of loading the Postie plugin - off the WordPress.org plugin site I was contacted by the web host to say that they had detected a lot of emails sent from the site (It was a clean new WP site). They discovered the Postie plugin had sent approximately 70K messages. I deleted it immediately.

    FYI Postie does not have any TAF (tell a friend) functionality.
