Do you receive an email with subject "BlackBerry Developer Program - Details Enclosed"
I received this, my first thought it is a phishing email because
1. it asked me to complete payment info, most of phishing emails do that so;
2. it didn’t use @rim.com as sender address;
3. I didn’t actually register for this event although I submitted a new app.
But I clicked the link, and all I need to do is to confirm Paypal email address, nothing to lose so I did…
Is this owned or authorized by RIM?

Appreciate the support in answering the question.
You are correct, this is not a phishing email. Apologies for the confusion. You should have received a note prior to the one from Milestone, letting you know your apps were eligible and to whitelist the milestone email address so it is not put into junk folders.
Thanks for your particiaption and submissions.

Im a bit confused, I received an email similar to this about 3 weeks ago in regards to first portathon in which I submitted 3 apps which were all eligible. Now I got this one today but Im not sure what it is for? I was included inside the portathon last week friday. But I havent received any email not even in junk about any of my apps being approved?

Can you please email us at BlackBerryDeveloperprogram@rim.com so we can sort this out for you? It may require some back and forth and app.vendor IDs and I would prefer not to ask you for that in a public forum.
