Default Blackberry Owners Lounge Closing?

Please Login to Remove!

I just want to know if anyone else received an email the other day stating that it would be shutting down, and moving to another site called "myBlackberry". I hesitate on going there through the email because the address has an "e" in it after the name Blackberry, where the original site did not.
It may all be legit, but I'd rather not find out the hard way that my laptop has been infected; and I'm sure not gonna direct my phone to there. So anyone with some insight to this I would be appreciative of feedback.
Thanks.

I got one ages ago, and didnt go via the email, but know of the site, as was mentioned here quite a while ago. At that time it was only available for US and Canada; its now replacing Owners Lounge. [Which I found pointless for my blackberry usage]

Thanks, but I did not double post, unless my phone did it by mistake. I will be sure to check after I post from my phone though from now on.

Thanks for the info.
I was just cautious when I saw that extra letter in the address. I took a big hit on my first laptop and have never forgot that lesson.
But it actually looks interesting, and I signed up in it. It might offer something a long the way.
Again, Thanks!
