Exclamation *** AB Members check your email ***

This is very important lately alot of AB member's registered email addresses have been bouncing email reply notifications back to my server swamping it! Most of these are older members with hotmail, msn, yahoo etc email addresses.

I need you guys to change or check your email addresses and manage your thread subscriptions by unsubscribing to threads you no longer need here

To change and update your email address go here you will need to validate and check your new email address to reactivate your a/c.

Any member who has left or no longer checks or changes their bounced email will eventually will be deactivated and their thread subscriptions next month will be all unsubscribed.

Procedural question...

Is it possible to combine (somehow) the three distinct threads on this topic from Announcements (read-only), Feedback, and MO? Because it's confusing to have to read three threads with an identical Subject line just in case one of them turns out to be different


Main question...

If we check our (free) email and there are no bounce messages, does that mean that nothing bounced, or that we just don't know about it?

What about newsletters/informational emails? When was the last one sent out?


Bottom line...

If we turn off all email notification, are we safe?

Yeah, if we have no subscriptions of any kind, do we still need to check?

Yeah only applies to you if

1. you have subscribed to threads which get replies
2. if you set up to get email notifications when someone pm's you
3. if you get a polite pm from me telling you to check or change your email addy from free email address to an ISP one

you won't know.. but generally if your email a/c has a space quota and you fill it up, then email to you will bounce back to the sender.. in this case the sender would be me/AB's server

Heh, I sort of stopped checking my mail box that received AB mail. I suppose I should change the box that the mail comes to..

Hmmmm the e-mail account that I singed up with is long dead, and I cant even access it now. I only ever use my Yahoo account. My new proper e-mail given to me by my new ISP I have no idea what it is.

that only works for future email reply notifications not past.. the easy thing would be to unsubscribe all forum members from all their threads but i think some members wouldn't be happy with that heh
