    Hi All,

    At the moment, for some reason the server sending out our emails has been blacklisted, which means some domains will stop you receiving emails from this board... consequently, you might not get notification of PM's or replys to posts etc...

    I'm talking to the host to find out why this is... but it's happened before and been resolved, and normally due to a mistake/error, so i don't expect this to be any different...

    Believe you will find that a Host company has had several Hit's by someone using the sites email

    Has happended on several Boards before

    Often takes weeks to get Block removed..........

    Remember Tiscali - Majoir server - getting All it's Accounts treated as Spams..........

    Seems it easy for someone to report it and it to the Block List
    But a real pain to get it Removed - Fingers Crossed.........

    Yep Bob, i'm sure that's probably it...

    I spoke to them this morning and they're on it... I remember my ISP got blocked and they managed to shift it in 2 days... but i'm aware that others took longer... we'll see.

    It tends to be the more lazy corporations that rely on these things... but at the moment I know hotmail, FSmail, and sparky's email is blocking this site.

    Ok, apparently we've been delisted... so there shouldn't be any problems from now on...

    I've got no bounced messages in my inbox, so hopefully that's over.

    The host has set up systems in place to make sure it can't happen again... will keep an eye on it, but fingers crossed we're ok.

    Slight problem with AOL running. If you want someone to definitely see something, post on the thread, as notifications might not get through about PM's and I can't force users to use pop up notifications.
