Unhappy If you're not receiving your forum emails, read this

If your email address that you have registered on the forum is an AOL address or Earthlink address or Comcast address, you probably are not receiving any emails from the forum nor will you receive the newsletter that is going out in a few minutes.

It seems that a spammer was able to find an open door on our server and used us to spam who knows how many people. Even though it was not us that did the spamming, AOL, Earthlink, Comcast and who knows what other ISPs, see us as the spammers and have put us on their blacklist.

In fact, we've had over 400 bounced emails in the last couple of days generated just from forum members having messages sent to them when someone posts on a thread that they're subscribed to and when they have the option checked to receive an email when they get a private message.

I don't know if there is anything we can do to get AOL, Earthlink and the others to start letting our emails get thru to users again. As far as they're concerned, we're the bad guys even though we personally have never sent one email that wasn't asked for. And once you get put on the blacklist, it's extremely hard to get off of.

They may listen to you since you're the receiver of our emails. If you want to get your forum notices or our emails and no longer get them, contact your ISP and demand that they let our emails get delivered to you.

I'm on AOL, no newsletter. I guess I'll change my address to my Yahoo address.
