    OF4WD email issues

    this was forwarded to me by the OF4WD and i thought i would share it with all of you, regarding the non-response from emails. I hope this helps. it happened to me, and it was by shear luck that that one day i checked my junk box before just deleting it.

    i left his name out, i didnt ask if i could post his name, not that it matters but...

    thanks

    Dear Randy:

    This message may or may not actually get through depending on your email spam settings. If it does get to you it may not always unless you take a minute to ensure that anything from of4wd.com is cleared though your spam filter.

    Almost all email systems have some way of "white listing" email addresses or entire domains (the "domain" for the of4wd would be "of4wd.com"

    For HOTMAIL USERS:

    Go to your Hotmail account Inbox screen. Simply click on the "Options" button near the top right hand side of the inbox screen.

    The next page you will see "Safe and blocked senders" and click on that. On the next screen click on "Safe Senders" and add "@of4wd.com" (without the quotes) to the box and click the "add to list" button.

    That's it. From now on you will get your membership updates, notifications for membership, CampNL, Registration confirmations, etc.

    There are similar systems on almost all email interfaces, please use them so we can communicate effectively with you.

    Please mention this to your other OF4WD friends or club members in case their copy gets lost in their spam box

    Thanks

    Wonder why..

    I checked into it - for some reason the OF4WD is on my master blacklist that came down from my provider... Odd...

    if it is blacklisted from your isp, some of the isp use a blacklist service, and if they are on that list, chances are everyone on that isp will not get email from them

    I had problems like this with my domain, and used a mail forwarding service that my domain registrar had, and it got blacklisted by this service and that stopped all my email from my domain from getting to me

    would be good to know who your provider is so anyone else with the same one may have the same issue

    it is something like that... the best we can figure is that when we send out mass emails... it triggers a "spam" flag with our ISP...

    thanks for the heads up 92YJ

    Rando,
    I've tried joining the of4wd forums twice with 2 different email accounts. both times I got the first reply saying my request was recieved and my acount ws inactive and to wait for the activation email, but they haven't come either time. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
