Exclamation BEWARE: false baanboard account notifications

Hi all,

Some of you may have been receiving following or similar messages recently via e-mail:

Dear Customer,

This e-mail was send by to notify you that we have temporanly prevented access to your account.

We have reasons to beleive that your account may have been accessed by someone else. Please run this file and Follow instructions

Such messages are absolutely fake and you are advised not to open or execute any sort of included attachment!

Note that there other ways to see if such messages are fake by checking the e-mail headers:

X-Mailer: Microsoft Windows Mail 6.0.6001.18000
X-MimeOLE: Produced By Microsoft MimeOLE V6.0.6001.18049
Notice the totally fake return path. Baanboard mails are also NEVER sent out using a microsoft mailer.
