    web developer sending emails

    Not with attachments...then again, most of the spam I see comes through contact forms, so attachments aren't an option by design.
    If I've helped you out in any way, please pay it forward. My wife and I are walking for Autism Speaks. Please donate, and thanks.

    If someone helped you out, be sure to "Like" their post and/or help them in kind. The "Like" link is on the bottom right of each post, beside the "Share" link.

    That's what got my attention. Nothing through my contact form. He had to have gotten my personal email through whois. And he is promoting Wordpress sites, which I don't use.

    This site is actually on a template which I have not bothered to get a designer to modify because I'm not ready and may not be for some time as I've ignored the site for a couple of years. Still a lot of content to develop and I have yet to develop a monetization or a marketing plan (this is due to a lack of planning because this should have been done first).
