I received the following email this evening (never seen anything like it before). Is this real or something else? My software is up-to-date, by the way.

Hi,

The team and I here at Logos Bible Software want to thank you for using our software. I also wanted to see if you are interested in learning about getting your Logos Bible Software up to date.

Would you like to speak with your product specialist to learn more?

Thank you,

Hmmm.  I have not ever received an e-mail like that.  I wonder if contacting Customer Support directly and asking about the e-mail would shed any light?

That does seem strange, especially if your software is already up-to-date.

Perhaps they are thinking of Logos NOW??

That could be it but, if it is, it is rather cryptic.

If it is "Logos Now," they should just say so. Furthermore, it is a little misleading, since Logos now is about FUTURE features. Wink

I replied Monday morning, asking what she was talking about, since I am up to date. No response so far (11 PM Tuesday).

I don't get it BUT

I would think about why Jen has two different Email Adresses in this Mail...

Given that both email addresses are legitimate Faithlife emails not a look alike spoof, I deem it real - and quite ignorable.

Maybe the secondary email address makes up for her missing last name...

I replied to Jen and received an email response from Todd Cullop, stating that Jen was his assistant, and had mistakenly concluded I was using Logos 5. Later, I received a follow-up from Jen (but not a reply to my original request for clarification), asking if I had been in contact with Todd. I advised Jen that I had.

Allow me to gently suggest this particular campaign be retired. It provokes curiosity, but not the right kind.

Grace and peace. <><

I just recieved the email and I am a Now subscriber with the latest version of Logos 6. It does sound as if some wires have gotten crossed somewhere.

A mix up sent some L6 users the email by mistake.

A bunch of mixups lately have made me feel little dissatisfied about my Logos experience. I got this email too. I think the cut backs are starting to take their toll on customer service.

I sent an email to Vincent Setterholm regarding the keyboards today and received a reply from Sean Boisen stating that Vincent was no longer with Logos.  His departure is a real loss, but that is not on the customer service side.
