Re: erratic email notification


HI Martinimages, just letting you know that your post has been seen, and someone much wiser about these things than I, will be along shortly to see if they can sort it out...

Re:


I thought, yesterday, that a notification took quite awhile to come, but I just thought it was a fluke at the time. I will keep track today.

Lesa will be stopping in later to help figure this out. I know that will not be this morning, but will probably be later today.

Re:


Further to my request one of my members received this from his ISP provider I don't have clue what they are talking about, maybe you do.

quote:

Hi Martin

It would appear that email messages from Runboard were being blocked by my ISP following their introduction of a service to reduce spam and other unwanted mail. This particular block has been lifted and I am now able to receive messages from Runboard. This is the message I received from the ISP and, if you wish, you can pass it on:-

"The reason your mail was blocked was because your envelope sender was both non-null and not-valid. Thus sender-verification failed and so we prevented the mail coming in since we would have nowhere to send bounce reports later.
If you insist on using a noreply@ address, simply ensure it is deliverable in some manner (to a black hole will do) or else send these messages with a null envelope-sender.

If you choose the latter option, be warned though that we (and many other email providers) verify From: headers etc as well, because that is a further anti-spam measure, as such the best option is simply to make noreply@deliverable in some fashion."

Re: erratic email notification


I can't believe Lesa has not weighed in on this yet.
SUSA? Should we PM Lesa? I know she usually checks here, before her own PM'S.

Martin, when Lesa gets here, she will be able to tell you what that means exactly.

Re:


Lesa has been gone all day, but I have now messaged her. She is the one that knows how to handle this. We do not want Runboard messages blocked.

Re:


I forgot to say, I have been getting my messages all day, but since I have been rather tied up today, I don't know if they came quickly.

Re: erratic email notification


Hi martinimages!

Sorry for responding so late. I'm being pulled in so many different directions right now, but your concerns are important to us and to me.

Certain email providers are late to deliver a message from time to time, or don't ever deliver them at all. However, based on the quote from your member, this appears to be a little different than the common scenario, so I have escalated this to Thor in hopes that there's something he can do about it.

@Queeny and Susa, thank you for weighing in on this. emoticon

posticon Re: erratic email notification


Maybe use an outside email source? I use my local phone company to get online, and they have an 'outside' spam catcher. I get a daily email of all the emails they blocked, and I just log in and allow the ones I want to come through.

I never use my 'real' email account for message boards and social media to try and prevent it from getting a bunch of spam. I use MSN, Yahoo, Gmail, etc. for my social email source. Maybe that's the way to go?
