    Not receiving emails

    Great that the site is back on line. Is everything in working order? I have posted a couple of questions, to which there have been replies, but have not received any emails alerting me.

    Check your spam folders, I've been receiving my post replies via LoungeAdmin@[youremailaddress.ext] and a lot of spam re-routers might be triggered by it.

    Thank's, you are right, they are in my Yahooo Bulk folder. Wonder if this is this likely to be rectified?

    I think Bob's onto something there. I've seen other comments about what the latest filters and such are doing with the emails that contain YOUR own address.

    Re: Not receiving emails

    I've noticed this too many times lately, as my ISP uses Yahoo for mail services. I've gotten into the habit now of looking online at my email first, and going through the JUNK folder to find any false positives. When I find one, I use the 'Not Junk' option to move it back to my Inbox, and then I'll download it to my local machine.

    I think it's getting to the point where more and more email customers are not following unsubscribe methods, and just using the "this is spam" feature stop receiving mail-lists and the such.

    One of these days... everyone will figure it out.

    Re: Not receiving emails

    That's because it's a common method used by spammers. I've received spam from my own spoofed email address. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
