Are you receiving site emails?

Post by korexus » Tue Sep 18, 2007 7:11 am

A number of people have now mentioned that they are not receiving site emails (turn reminders/notifactions, PM notifications, messages from GMs, etc.) I have a nasty feeling that somehow our site is being blocked by some bulk mail filters (and thus not even reaching your junk mail folder). Please let us know here if you are having trouble with emails and who your account is with.

Note, problems with the EWoK Alpha test do not count. Those mails are never being sent from our end...

Any ideas for solutions?

You no longer deserve that pigeon, give it back.

On second thoughts, maybe you should get the pigeon to answer polls for you. :twisted:

I'm sure the pigeon has better things to do with it's time...

Please let us know here if you are having trouble with emails and who your account is with.
Yes. I mean no. I mean no, I'm not having trouble (@gmail), and yes to the actual poll, I AM receiving site email. Probably same yes/no as Yondallus and Hryll... :wink: :wink:

I haven't received any emails for at least a month. Will try to change to my gmail-address and see if it works.

AOL, and I have never received an email from the site. I check my SPAM folder every three days, nothing there either.

I'm not receiving any e-mails. I'm on FrontierNet.Net ... a regional phone company as an ISP.

Ok, so evidently some mail servers are filtering us out. Could someone who is not receiving the @kaomaris.com mails please try whitelisting us, to see if the messages then get through?

I just received my first e-mail from AutoGM@kaomaris.com in a number of months.

Did you change any server-side settings, kor?

Not that I can think of. Maybe the filters on your provider just got a little better :)

If we're very lucky, our server just got some upgrade which fixed the problem, but I wouldn't pin any hopes on that...

It'll be interesting to see if anyone else starts getting mails. Did you do anything at your end, Bryk?

Me too! First email ever from Kaomaris. I no touch nothing, so it must be something in the World of Kaomaris that fixed itself.
