I have yet to look into this, but no doubt easySMS somehow is sending unsolicited emails as I got the bounces back.

These bounces were certainly from easySMS as they contained the subject of the last two SMS’s I sent.
These addresses have NEVER been associated with my wp install, nor have they ever been entered through the easySMS form. The only possible way my site could have even seen these addresses is possibly spam through my contact form, but I fail to see the connection.
I’m going to dig into the database now and then once over the plugin code and see what I turn up.
Has anyone else experienced this with this plugin?
