Yahoo and Hotmail Email Addresses
« on: February 02, 2010, 11:04:17 pm »
Due to a recent change in Yahoo's server policies, our mail server is frequently unable to deliver email to Yahoo email accounts.  I'm working to resolve this, but it's very difficult to fix.  In the meantime, email addresses that bounce mail will continue to be locked-out, and I highly recommend switching to a different email provider (Gmail is free).

On a similar note, Hotmail addresses are not recommended because Hotmail is known to silently fail to deliver mail, in violation of several well-established mail server standards.  So, if you have a Hotmail email address and you don't receive notifications from this forum for things like PMs, the only thing we can do about it is recommend switching to a different email provider.

Please note that restrictions are likely to be imposed on accounts using these email services in the future, especially if these issues continue, so it's highly recommended to switch to a different provider.

... Want a GMail invite? I've still got 49 :)

Actualy, I'll happily give an invite to anyone in Mudd's shoes. It's easier than the other routes, IMO.

EDIT: Be aware that I need a valid email to do so. If you don't trust me, this route is not for you.

Gmail doesn't require an invitation to use anymore.

Anybody want to ignore Natasha and give me your email anyway so I can be your stalker for lifebest friend forever?

:laughs: You can tell I've been on gMail since it more or less started, huh?

:pulls page:

Natasha is entirely and wholeheartedly correct, and gets a cookie for getting me to bring some of my knowledge up to date. You don't need an invite. You don't need a phone. You just need to be able to read a Captcha, more or less.

Sorry about that.

Hm, I am a Hotmail user and so far I have not had in issue with this...
However I will keep this in mind.

(Reminds me of the story that my mom came down to do something and was standing right over my shoulder... I had killed FT, and was randomly clicking around in my email to make it seem like I was busy with it... however, at that point, I got PMs from two people here, so displayed on my email was 'FURRYTEENS'... thankfully she was looking away...)
