E-mails

Post by The Rocker Returns » Wed Apr 08, 2020 10:17 am

I've checked a box allowing members to contact me by e-mail, but I can't see where to put my e-mail address.

You must have already entered that info when you registered. The system will use that email address. I will double check the board is set up to allow emails by default.

I didn't realise this until the other day that if you go into your settings and change / update your email address to actually are also sending a request to re-register. Wierd. I discoverd it after I'd changed my email addy on phoenix. John tells me months later he didnt have to accept my req=uest to re-register. Of course I had no clue what he was on about and said I'd never requested to re-register - inadvertantly, I had.

Try the email settings again, I have made a change but whether its affected anything or not i'm unsure.

I can't see anywhere to put my e-mail address.

If you say I've already registered it that's fine - I don't want to change it !

And I don't want to lose my status as 'the first member'...

Its okay, underneath your profile pick if I click on the contact icon it offers me either PM or email options, so you must have the info in correctly.

Yeah, I've tried sending an e-mail to myself.

It worked, although it said it was from 'Alan' !

Okay, that's not right.
It's supposed to say "Alan" for emails sent from the site as in mass emails etc.

Dont think its worked.

Sent you an email.
Tick box to say email myself a copy.

Still not here yet, must be 5 minutes ago now.

Quicker with the postman.

Might need to look at some more settings for SMTP for emails.

Mind you, you sent one to yourself, I might give that a go
