Comment notification going to someone not even associated with my blog. (4 posts)

    I got an email from someone I don't know, someone that has never even been associated with my blog, saying that she is getting the comment notification approval emails from my blog. She forwarded one to me.

    How is this possible? Her email is no where near close to mine. My address is correct in the dashboard. Is this a known glitch? How do I stop the emails from going to her? For now I have just disabled the comment notification emails. I always just go to my blog and approve from there. I hadn't even realized I had the boxes checked to get them through email, so when they weren't showing up in my box I had no reason to wonder.

    This bothers me that these were going to a total stranger. Who knows what could have happened if she wasn't a decent person.

    Thanks in advance!

    are you using any "subscribe to" plugins? Its possible that someone left a comment, and subscribed, and used her email address.. (all I can think of that would cause that to happen)

    Check the comments related to the post in the email she sent, IF youre using a "subscribe to" plugin. If not, hmm..

    Nope, no plugins like that. And she says she has never even been to my blog.

    "My address is correct in the dashboard"

    well heres what I would do .. I would go into phpmyadmin and do a search for her email address in all the tables. See if it comes up, and where.

    at that point, once youve figured out where it is, you'll get a better idea of what caused it.
