Most every morning I'm getting one of these in the mail... How can I fix this? Thanks

Well, that's not actually XF's URL for callbacks. That would be IPNs from an older system still executing. (You can't change the URL for an IPN after the fact.)

Thanks Mike, but the old system is no more, we imported everthing from VB into new domains. I don't have any recurring payments set up in Paypal. What do you think could be generating them?

The IPN history in PayPal may give you ideas where they're coming from. (I'm not sure where PayPal buried that on their new design, unfortunately.)

I think that's the URL from before your import, but I'm not positive. Have you installed any add-ons that interact with upgrades?

Astonishingly, as far as I can tell, they haven't.

You have to go back to the old site design (and then be constantly bugged about moving over to the new site design).
