Is there an easy way to send all our NPCs an email, or do i need to get 3 different email addys and do it that way?

Cheers.

You can send the same PM to multiple accounts *has bugged the entire command group with one PM before.*

There are email aliases that are used and directed to the appropriate NPC or whoever is doing the job if there isn't one (we only have 2 NPCs at the moment)

They are all [at]wolf-faction.com and the names used are:

lordwolf
lordprotector (not 100% sure on this one, DM can say for certain, if not then its probably still 2ic)
plot
logistics

My reason for explaining them as above rather than posting each exact email address is to avoid excess spam from bots scanning the forum for addresses.

Strangely, that may not make any difference to some harvesting bots.

As soon as the bot see's the domain, it snags every word on the page and pops it infront of the @ symbol.

You can mitigate this by replacing the full stop and the @ with other characters, for example sometimes instead of @ I use [add the email thingy symbol here] so for example..

sausagesarecool [add the email thingy symbol here] hotbangers [and a full stop here] com

The only way to be 100% sure your email address wont be harvested, is to not use one...
