How are Group "managers" getting access to personal email addresses of folders to be able to send recruitment emails?

There is no way that information should be released to ANYONE!

I disagree

The server did not send me an email.

The recruitment email came directly from the group manager's hotmail account. There was no PM, it wasn't an email notification of a PM, and I can assure you I did not request to join this group.

Probably the server

Hi Angus,

Please forward the mail to admin at fold dot it. It may have just been the server, but setting the From address to the group manager. However, I don't know, so please forward me the email.

admin

So... who had their privacy violated?

So it was actually the team captain that had their EMail address disclosed to Angus... not the other way around.

Either way -

it's a privacy violation to reveal email addresses.
