Had this message last week and emailed them, they got back to me after a couple of days and cleared it, now today it is back! Also saying I have hints when I haven't...drives me mad! ::)

I have had this for a week or more so far. I followed the link and my address looked ok so I ignored it. At the weekend I got bored so I went and changed my email address (I have another I could use) and then changed it back to the original one without any problem. They duly sent me an email to the "new" address each time without any problems ::)

The message went away so I thought that had fixed things..... and then I noticed it back again tonight ???. Since it seems that it isn't just me I will go back to ignoring it till it goes away :)

Same here  ::)

When it came back yesterday I tried clearing the cache, cookies, internet history etc as suggested in their email but it didn't work  ::)  Doesn't appear to be causing any problems though so will leave it for now!

I'm not getting the email warning, but what I do keep getting every so often is some (not all) of the headings on search results screen being in German!!

I get lots of German headings and I think other languages too. I'm sure I had French headings last week.

I'm not sure if this is part of the same problem...I'm unable to access my messages in the message centre by clicking the "envelope". They say I must do all that clearing out of cookies etc., and also change browser but I don't want to change. I access them in other ways, but if there's a number on the envelope it's more convenient to click there.
