I thought I only got these when using hotmail?

So, I got this message in my forum inbox a little while ago (edited so as not to reveal anything about the user who sent it):

...Thing is, there is no report spam/abuse feature that I can find for my in-box on here. That makes sense. As I have never gotten spam mail on forum before. It just seems like something that doesn't happen. Usually spam as i have seen on forums is kept to the forums themselves, and at least somewhat relevant to the nature of a forum. Now the user who sent this has no forum posts, no avatar and no blogs, or images uploaded. a Blank account. And I take that to mean (given what was sent to me) a spam account.

 

Beyond just deleting it... how do I report it? I don't really see a way to do so (which again makes sense to me as this is something ope generally just doesn't expect to have to deal with on forums). And, what do I do if I start getting these on a regular basis?

    I got the exact same thing. I just deleted it. I guess you could contact MMORPG.com and they can check your mail.

    Can they? And, how exactly would I go about that?

    Go to the bottom of the page and "Contact Us". That works like mail, through your account here. I think they'll have to bump it up the ladder to someone who can check your mail. I'm not sure what they'll do in this particular case though. They probably already got the account in question and deleted it. You can check that by simply clicking on the name to visit that account and see if it's still there.
