vsobr.com

Why do some post notifications in email have a reply address to vsobr.com?

Like this one:

Thanks! I don't know what that is but it is being tagged as a possible scam. So I am not using that link.

Is it something that Overclock.net is employing for some reason?

Thanks! So the assumption is that email from vsobr.com is safe?

There's no reason to reply to it though. It's an outbound relay so probably a mass mailer.


The same goes for the threadloom thing they are using.

Almost all of the new post notifications, but not all, I am getting are from vsobr.com with the link through vsobr.com to read the posts.

Thanks AlphaC!
