    If you are not able to get email from edcforums I need to find out what services are blocking us so I can work on getting us unblocked.

    I would like to know if it is making it to your spam server or if it is not arriving at all.

    If you are on Earthlink they are in the process of removing the block. They said it could take up to 24 hours.

    I have sent in the information to get Verizon email addresses fixed.

    I want to know as fast as possible what services I need to start working on so we can get this fixed so I am going to send a mass alert on this issue.

    If you are on Gmail I think they will hit your spam box until you mark them as not spam.

    Just checked my spam folder on Gmail. Yep, they got circular filed.

    I know the emails serve a different purpose, but just wanted to say the alert system seems to work well. Very useful for getting info out.

    If you are not getting messages at all I don't know if it will help or not but maybe if people asked their provider to whitelist us.

    I have learned that if there are sudden increased in email volume that can trigger a block. The forum was down for almost a week during the move and all the activity since opening again might have triggered this with some services.

    I wish we had the alert system on the old software, not many people saw the posts about the software change and several people wanted to know what happened.

    Here is what I know so far.

    Some people on private servers are having their email addresses blocked.
    Earthlink is blocking us....They said we will be unblocked soon.
    Verizon is blocking us.
    Gmail is sending us to a spam folder.

    Yahoo was sending my emails to spam. I turned my emails off on the first day though but my first day was just a couple days ago. Hope this helps.

    I think if several Yahoo users tell them we are using the email for legitimate purposes in the customer service area they will lift the spam server flag from us.

    I understand that it can be harder for the sender to fix it.

    Throwaway addresses?

    Come on now. People using a throwaway address should have turned off notifications. We are not going to allow throw aways on people joining anymore.
