    I guess most of us received an email today about the windows7 button changer, but it was a genuine one from HappyAndyk. In your case you should flag that fake message as unwanted in your hotmail.es account

    If you want to receive genuine messages from TWC, go to your TWC Control Panel (CP) account- edit options tab and check "Receive Email from Administrators".

    Hi, This was sent by me. Once every 3 months or so, I send an Admin mail. I have been told, by Corrine too, that it landed in her Junk folder. Sorry about the trouble. Next time I will use a 'at thewindowsclub dot com' address.

    If anyone does not wish to receive these quarterly mails, one can always un-check the option to receive them via your User CP. Meanwhile would be nice if you could add 'thewindowsclub at hotmail dott com' to your safe list

    Changed some settings. I think now it wouldn't appear as fake.
