Lately for the past few weeks I've been receiving a lot of emails regarding password recovery

Not sure if this is an act of someone or a bot...... I know it's probably harmless at this stage unless my email account is compromised, but its getting really annoying lately and I wonder if admins can do anything about this? Also if anyone else is facing the same thing?

the IP address of the sender was also included but not sure if this refer to LYN server or the person who initiated the password change

Looks like someone actually typed "ZeneticX" in password recovery function.

To make this difficult, maybe a combination of "username" and matching "e-mail address" to recover password?
