NOMAD Says Ignore Your Welcome Email

NOMAD Status: WELLCOME TO THE NEW NASA WEBMAIL WARNING!!!!!

If you get an e-mail with “WELLCOME TO THE NEW NASA WEBMAIL” in the subject line, DO NOT provide the information this e-mail is asking for. This is a bogus e-mail that needs to be deleted and ignored. We are working to block this e-mail from NOMAD customers.”

Editor’s note: Hmmm – this is from NOMAD after all. How do we know that this alert is not fake and that the original message is actually legit? Isn’t NOMAD supposed to prevent this from happening in the first place – or did NOMAD cause it to happen? Yes I am being silly. I just can’t shake the 40 year old mental image of the “NOMAD” robot from Star Trek and the voice that it used every time I read a NOMAD Update. Perhaps someone could forward the offending email text to me?
