so you got hacked. someone is signing you up to **bleep** and that's somehow VM fault.

And if its your primary email address it can't be deleted. But how about stop checking it and who cares what gets spammed to it

Hi scudybeef

 

Thanks for posting and apologies for the email issues. 

 

If it is your primary email we wouldn't be able to delete. I'd advise changing the password to a brand new unique password never used before and doing malware scans on all devices

 

Kind regards,
