Ok, so I'm looking at a couple people profiles here @ WmW. And I see the following entry for thier email address:

admin@peXXXan.ne.client2.attbi.com(x's in place of some other letters to protect myself)

Anyways, that hostname is the one provided to me by AT&T. Any ideas? Kinda strange..

I posted the same thing awhile ago and Brett explained that it was used to stop email harvesters. They fluctuate there are all kinds of variations to them.

Yeah, it caught me by surprise too. It's a pretty slick anti-harvester script BT built in for profile protection.

I don't want to give away any secrets, but it pulls a sneaky trick or two if they harvest long enough.
