System E-Mail Working Again
« on: December 30, 2013, 05:00:16 PM »
Members,

The out-going system e-mail is once again on-line.  So personal messages, replies to your post notification and the "forgot password" function will all result in an e-mail to your e-mail address (the one you used when registering).

Some security questions were added for new member registrations.

We seem to have slowed or stopped the automatic registrations (for the time being).  Let's keep our fingers crossed.

~Dennis

Hi Denis:
It has to be to a subject you have posted in previously. One you have not previously posted in, you won't get a reply. In addition, if someone sends you a PM, you will get an email notification. The reply I got was to another subject I had previously posted to...

okay Dave,, when I create my own topic, yes I receive an Email when someone reply  but not when a topic is open by another one.. that's why I said i've never had an Email for a reply to a topic from someone else. ;)........thanks for your reply.

No, you will get a notice for any topic you post in... You don't have to originate it. But don't forget - it has been re-enabled for only a couple of hours. Someone has to reply to a topic you posted in first...

These can be turned on or off in your Profile under the Notifications settings.

hmm!... With the old forum, I never received one answer per Email to date...But I hope get the data repnses when a Member replies to a message. I have a religious forum and when one of my members respond to the topics on my forum, I always get the answers to my email. That's why I say that this forum sends no answers in our Email when a member gives an answer to the topics of this forum, in any case I never received one in a year since I've been here even if I had checked the little box for this purpose to receive. ;)

That is because this feature was shut down before you joined due to spammers spamming the list email address. This was one of the major reasons that the software was updated, as the newer version of the software includes safeguards against this happening.

As long as you have notifications activated in your profile, you should have gotten notification emails  for each time I have replied to you tonight here.

Since about 3:00PM this afternoon (Eastern Time) the Forum has only received two registration requests.  In the recent past I'd have had many many more.  One of these is most likely a person interested in joining the forum but he/she hasn't contacted me via e-mail yet.  So the new filtering system seems to be working---at least for the time being.
