I got an email that says it is from info@ooma.com concerning a topic I had subscribed to. Except all the links from the text are from oomacare.com. Google Chrome warned me when I clicked on them that
You attempted to reach http://www.oomacare.com, but instead you actually reached a server identifying itself as *.ooma.com. This may be caused by a misconfiguration on the server or by something more serious. An attacker on your network could be trying to get you to visit a fake (and potentially harmful) version of http://www.oomacare.com. You should not proceed.
Did the forums app somehow get hacked or otherwise have their data gleaned? The subject of my email _was_ from a that I had subscribed to. Following is the text of the email.

If they are on the same IP address they should make sure that the email and the SSL certificate are using the same domain address. The email looked like a phishing attempt or spam.

oomacare.com is the domain used as the "reply-to" e-mail for Ooma support.

I'm not sure how that domain was sent in your forum notification. What e-mail client are you using to view the e-mail? When I setup my Topic reply notification, I have links pointing to "www.ooma.com/forums"
