Email Bouncing

Recommended Posts

I have just received an email from supposedly Scott Adams stating the below. I tried returning a reply, but my email was undelivered.

The return address is info@glutenfreeforum.com

"If you forum email continues to bounce we will have to delete your account.

Take care,

Scott"

What I want to know is if this is a genuine email, and if it is, what does it mean?

I have never sent emails to the forum and I only use this site to answer or create topics. So I have not got a clue what it means. I received Scott's updates by email, acutally I do not read them, maybe I should have. But I have not changed my email address, so any emails to me should not bounce.

Help I am so confused.

I was just wondering, is this service not free and is ther a subscription fee to participate. If that is the case I am guilty.

So Scott, or anybody who can help me with this problem, please advise me.

I do not want to be dropped from this forum as I have found it really helpful.

Thanks in anticipation

Cathy

What happens is you get regular mailings from the forum. If they bounce back, eventually they will figure you are no longer there. Try emailing him through this link: https://www.celiac.com/catalog/contact_us.php

According to your profile your at hotmail.

This probably means hotmail is bouncing the emails automatically.

Personally I never used hotmail (and wouldn't for a lot of reasons) but yahoo mail and gmail allow you to take "spam" sites out of the "spam list"... I don't know about MSN... you will have to look in the options.

Secondly, so far as I know the subscription for the emails is seperate the the forum....

Hotmail is really bad in a lof of ways and they seemingly randomly choose domains not to allow you to send to or deliberately hold up the email, this is specially noticeable if you try and send to another free account... this explains why you couldn't reply.

I think what Microsoft do is ban whole addresses for everyone so if someone marks it as spam then everyone else gets blocked...

I've just got the same email from Scott and I don't use Hotmail. I do know that our server is trying to weed out SPAM though, as we all are... So perhaps the email from Scott is getting kicked out.

I do hope that we don't get kicked out of the forum over this! :o:(

I've also been having email problems today from other sources, so this might be the same thing.

Is your "mailbox" filled up at the server? That is, your email account only gets so much space. If your server isn't automaticly deleting your mail (at the server), it may be reading "full" and bouncing new emails. Check with Hotmails email help section. I had to deal with this years ago on Prodigy. (Yes, I'm old.) :rolleyes:

This isn't my problem as I manage my email right from the server website and delete on a daily basis. I emailed tech support, so hope they come up with an answer soon as it's really annoying when the email is not working right.

Thanks for that gfp

I have now changed to gmail. My email address where I getting notification wasn't hotmail but my internet provider. Occassionally it hiccups. Hotmail was an alternative address I had listed for people to contact me if needed.

And then when I tried to get back onto this forum yesterday, I had no luck, and I really thought I was completely locked out. But I see the forum was down, and I am able to get on now. I tell you it led to a bad nights sleeping, wondering where I would get my internet fix next from.

Thanks for your help everyone, I can now go to work happy.

Gmail has the advantage you can download the messages to your local inbox....(free version) you can do this in Yahoo if you pay and I guess MSN/Hotmail of you pay too.

(you need to set up the pop options)

If you do this you know you have a backup if the terms and conditions ever change and you can set your local email client prog like outlook or thunderbird to download from your ISP account AND gmail account.... (belt and suspenders)

You can also set yourself up a seperate gmail account (invite yourself at other address) and use that specifically for signing up to forums etc... and not download that one... and leave the messages on the server as well.

This is what I do so I can check my email from anywhere but I also have a safety copy locally if the terms change or something weird happens. Seriously think about this ...imagine how inconveneient it is to have phone # addresses and stuff in emails and be unable to access them....

and so far as I still know

Hello Kaycee,

Yes, that came from me and was sent because the automatic email notifications that are sent out to you by this board--perhaps from the topics that you subscribed or posted to--began bouncing back to us, and this is for your AOL address.

If you have a new email address be sure to go into your "My Controls" area and update your email with the new one. Our policy is to delete accounts when this happens (I've seen some old accounts generate dozens of bounces a day), so it is important to update your email here if it has changed.

Take care,

Scott

Last night the sight was down, today I got back on, but it made me re-registar to post anything. Could this have to do with me getting rid of the original email account I used to registar the first time? Hmmm.... :blink: Julie
