Hey, not sure if anyone else got this email from tumblr, apparently we need to change our domain to point to domains.tumblr.com instead of what it currently points to (see Using a custom domain name, the email actually says to point it to an IP address but I think because we use a subdomain we actually need to point it to domains.tumbr.com). I don't have access to our domain settings.

PS. They've just been bought by Yahoo!

Hi there!

We are making improvements to the way we serve our custom domain traffic and we
need you to update your settings before June 21.

Please point your custom domain to Tumblr's IP: 66.6.44.4

If you do not make this update by June 21, your custom domain will no longer
redirect to your blog.

To learn more about how to do this, check out our custom domains help page
http://www.tumblr.com/docs/en/custom_domains

:)
Your friends at Tumblr


P.S. We previously sent this email without the IP address. Apologies for the
double email. We <3 you!

Tumblr's offices are located at East 21st St, 10th Floor. New York, NY 10010.

Is this kosher. I got this email as well, I thought it was a phishing e mail, looks kind of flaky

The IP address belongs to Tumblr:

Yeah it did look phishy (especially with the IP address) but it links to a tumblr.com help page that says we should be pointing to domains.tumblr.com. We may even already be pointing to that?

I've updated the IP that blog.theforest.org.uk points at to the one from the email: 66.6.44.4. TTL on the record is 4h so the change should propagate quite quickly.
