Alerts mailing list
The Bitcoin Protocol specification supports the broadcast of Alerts. An unofficial email relay is now provided that rebroadcasts these block chain alerts via subscription to the bitcoin unofficial alert mailing list . Alternatively, to subscribe via email send an email to email@example.com .
If you receive an alert you should immediately verify it is official by running "bitcoind getinfo", go to http://bitcoin.org  to find out more details concerning the alert, or join the #bitcoin IRC channel on freenode.
Please send any comments or requests to Gary Mulder .
