A Note About PMs
« on: September 06, 2009, 04:48:10 pm »
Lately, my server admin email account (where the from: address on forum-generated emails points to) has received quite a few emails from people attempting to reply to PMs via email.  I had been ignoring them, but they're happening with increasing frequency lately.

So, please be aware that you cannot reply to forum PMs via email, you have to come to the website to do it.  Attempting to do so will not send your message to the person who sent the original, it will send it to me, and I really don't want to receive your PM replies to my inbox.

So the TL;DR is:

Reply to PMs on the site or else Natasha will backhand you so hard your mother will feel it?

Also I didn't know you could reply by email xc

Well, the nature of email is that you can reply to any email message you receive, it's just a matter of whether that reply goes anywhere or not.  Many sites use a black-hole email address as the return address on script-generated emails like these, specifically for this reason.  I prefer to avoid using black-hole addresses, which means that if you do reply to an email notification from this forum, it will go somewhere.  Problem is, that "somewhere" is my webmaster/server admin account, which is definitely not the person you're attempting to reach if you're replying to a PM notification.
