Forum problems with Yahoo e-mail adresses

Hi all,

It seems like users that have regitered in the forum with a Yahoo e-mail address are not recieving e-mails from the forum.

I did some research and found this:

and
http://www.phpbb.com/community/viewtopi ... 1#p3269114

It seems like Yahoo has a very "effective" spam filter and does not even deliver these messages that are sent out automatically from software (like the forum).

To get white listed with Yahoo I need to fill out a form, will do it today and see what they say.

Alternatively, you could change your e-mail address to a non-Yahoo address to start getting e-mails form the forum again. You can do so here:
ucp.php?i=profile&mode=reg_details

Saludos,
Ivar

I have a yahoo (yahoo.co.nz) address and am receiving e-mails from the forum. However, the first one went into my 'bulk' folder and I then needed to add the address to my list to stop that from happening.

Maybe I do not understand, but which emails should I be receiving in my regular email addy? I jsut come here, the forum, to read all the latest.
Hmmm,
Lillian

It might depend on your settings Lillian. But for instance I received an e-mail to tell me there was another posting on this thread since I had contributed to it. (I can decide to stop these e-mails if I want.) Plus I get an e-mail if somebody sends me a private message. Again, these notifications can be opted out of.

All these setting can be found here:
ucp.php?i=165

If you are not receiving e-mails from the forum, and you think you should, make sure that they do not end up in the spam folder (many times it does). Once you un-spam it everything should work just fine.

I just conducted a little experiment with Ivar, deliberating sending emails from the forum to a Yahoo acct, and the msg did indeed go straight to the spam box (which Yahoo calls bulk for some reason).

So if you have a Yahoo mail acct and you're not receiving emails from the site as expected, look in your bulk box and move them into the inbox (if you have a large no of spam msgs in there, search for 'santiago' or similar). Also mark them as 'not spam' - the more people mark msgs from the forum as non-spam, the faster Yahoo's spamguard will stop putting them into the spam box.
