    I admit.. it caught my attention, "Oh crap.. what server is down!??!" from my initial reading it. Then saw it was this URL, and not the company we use... oh well.

    I already opened up an Abuse Ticket with ThePlanet and its being investigated.

    Hm I wonder if they have resellers doing that? I never have received anything from Hyperspin as far as spam. But we do use their services

    You receive them if you use the free service...

    I upgraded to paid and haven't received them since, just disable your free account if you don't want them.

    Those emails are NOT spam. You only receive them if you have a server monitored with us.

    I found a free account based on the server name provided to us in a separate email. The account was created at Nov 29 2004 11:59 AM, and we have the client's IP records if you want to know whether it was you. (I'll soon send you the username and password to let you examine the account)

    Except up/down notifications, all emails from us carry the following notice:
    As a user of Hyperspin.com, you agree to the Service Agreement to receive service announcements via email. If you are unwilling to receive future email from us, you can stop using our service by closing your account.
    We apologize if you have been distressed by this incident, and are more than happy to assist in stopping the email. (Please check out and reply to the email I sent you)

    I am going to apologize about this. Yes I did sign up for a free account, which was a while ago and did not remember about this.

    I have already contacted ThePlanet to close the Abuse ticket, and sincerely apologized to hyperspin, which I am doing once again. It was an error on my part to jump to conclusions and I am sorry for this.

    Moderator please close this ticket, as this has been resolved... a bone head mistake on my part
