Spam e -mails from Flickr

Jeff Lack Wildlife&Nature says:

I am getting a lot of spam e-mails from flickr today with what appears to be a genuine Flick e-mail address as when I try to block as spam I am being informed that the address which I am trying tp block is a genuine safe address!!! flickrteam@arrow.flickr.com
ie:Nespressoflickrteam@arrow.flickr.com

Anyone else getting these issues?

flickrteam@arrow.flickr.com

I can clearly see an "unsubscribe" link in the body of each and every email coming from that address. Have you tried that route?

It's not good policy to click on a link in an e-mail that you think is spam.

Jeff Lack Wildlife&Nature:
You should get in touch with Flickr directly and inquire about those e-mails.

If -- before you click -- you can tell that the domain you are being sent to is "flickr.com", that at least provides some assurance that the link is from a trustworthy source (assuming you trust Flickr :). Even if the message is unwanted, a link to flickr.com within it is still likely to be harmless.

However, anyone who doesn't absolutely and completely understand what I just said should definitely follow your advice and not click.

Agreed - I never said they should, I asked if they did.
