I’m not sure if this is internal to Scoutbook or not, but I don’t see a better place to post it.
In my spam folder today, I found an email from the Yahoo System Administrator saying that a message that I sent could not be delivered due to policy reasons. The actual sender of the email was netbsa.org via mail.scoutbook.com, but the message listed my email address as the sender instead. The Yahoo system didn’t like seeing a message sent from me to me when it knew the message originated outside its system, so the original email was never delivered, and the sender never saw a failed delivery message because the sending address was incorrect and the return path was null.
The original subject line was: Your Merit Badge Counselor Status on Scoutbook.com. The message included my name and the correct list of merit badges for which I’m registered, so I’m confident it was legitimate. I’m not sure if it was a periodic automated message or manually generated by my council, but either way it should not be spoofing my email address as the sending address. I’m guessing potentially thousands of other MBCs never received their email, either, for this same reason.
Let me know if you want me to send you the raw message with full headers.
