    Two Email Addresses for Notifications

    Is there some way to have two email addresses for notifications of responses to posts?

    I access this message board from two locations--work and home. I have notifications going to my work email address, because my accessing is because of work. However, I would also like to see any replies that occur outside of work hours.

    Having two email addresses for notifications would be one solution.

    Thanks, great board.

    well... one way is to go to email.com and create an account. Then have the account forward all incoming e-mail to both home & work.

    Are you then saying the system cannot handle two email addresses? I know I can make all sorts of work arounds, but I thought my statement, "two email addresses for notifications of responses to posts" was clear that I was directing the question to the Woody's Lounge system.

    If that was not clear, I hope it is now. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>

    I do NOT think that 2 e-mail address's can be used. The notifications are sent to the valid e-mail address that is on record of your account, the one that is listed in the "Basic Profile" pane. There no space at this time to add a second address. I am NOT a admin of this site but based on what I have seen at the WWWThread site, there has been no talk of multi e-mail address's.

    I do not use the "Edit e-mail notifications", I just spend the time checking the NEW entries. Before retirement, I would check both from work and at home, using the same account and I did not have any problem in viewing the NEW entries. Since these entries are stored on the Site server, and not the local machine, you can use as many machines and the all will be up to date. Just don't be replying from them at the same time.

    Thanks. I will then create a work around.

    There are ways that two distinct pieces of information can be entered in one text box, i.e., separated by a semi-colon. If that was the case here, I wanted to make use of it. <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>

    Like I said before, I do NOT think this is possible, but when Eileen see this, she will most likely correct me if I am in error.

    No, you get *one* email address!
    There are hundreds of ways to access your mail from several mailboxes - we all use them all the time.

    Thanks.

    Please don't take the next question as being "difficult," because I'm not.

    You state that we "get" one email address. I am assuming that you actually ment we "get to use" one email address in the email notifications, as opposed to we "receive" one email address.

    Again, thanks.
