Default Activation Server messages?

Please Login to Remove!

I have a total of 6 email accounts registered on the T-Mobile BIS. This morning around 5:50am CST I got emails from "Activation Server", subject "Email account information", with body starting with "Congratulations, you have successfully set up <email address> with your BlackBerry(R) device...." for 3 out of the 6 accounts. Actually 4 emails, one of them a duplicate.

I didn't think anything much of it, but this afternoon around 1:45pm CST I signed in to my T-Mobile account to check to see if maybe they had upgraded their BIS or something. I got to the page that lists the email accounts you have set up and, boom, I get "Activation Server" emails for the same 3 accounts. I didn't click on anything to request re-sending of my service books or anything. I figured it might be a T-Mobile thing, thus this posting in the Carrier Specific forum.

Has anyone else experienced anything like this, and/or have any idea what's going on? As far as I can tell, my emails have been working fine.

i get this every now and then, say every 3 months or so, on Sprint. I assume it means RIM restarted a BIS server in Waterloo or someplace and I was offline for the time it takes the server to restart.
