Email Notification Problems:
This concerns only emails from the address email@example.com. This email account is totally automated, and there is NO ONE there to answer, forward, or reply to emails.
1: If you receive a notification of a Private Message from firstname.lastname@example.org, DO NOT CLICK "REPLY" on that Email. It will not reach the person that you want to contact. Instead, click the link in the email that instructs you how to reply to the individual.
2: If you want to receive notifications of new posts on the forums, in most cases, you MUST ADD email@example.com to your list of contacts and approved email senders. This is especially true of webmail accounts with hotmail.com. live.com, yahoo.com, aol.com and any other webmail interface. In some cases, hotmail and live.com will ignore ALL automated mails so in that case the only option is to use a different email account from a different provider. Check your email provider's "help" files for more information.
Some ISP's, especially earthlink.com, have a feature that flags all email as spam and sends another automated email backto the sender, requiring the sender to click a link and then the recipient to accept the email before any email is delivered. In the case of our automated email there is no 'sender' there to click the email for approval, so nothing ever gets delivered to the recipient via earthlink unless you have previously added firstname.lastname@example.org to your approved senders list.
If you DO NOT want any notices of new forum posts, go to "Edit Profile" on the forums page (top left in blue box) on transplantbuddies and uncheck all the topics in the Email Notification area.
Also note: if you receive a notification of a new post to the forums, you cannot post a reply on the forums by replying to that email notification. You can only post a message to the forums from the forums section of www.transplantbuddies.org.
3: Finally, read ALL the fine print at the bottom of all automated emails, since they generally have a note at the bottom saying something like "DO NOT REPLY TO THIS EMAIL".
