    Hello,

    If you don't receive your confirmation email, please be sure to check your spam filter. It seems a lot of the emails are hitting people's spam folders. I'm working on figuring out why that's happening so we can avoid it! For now though, check your spam folder!

    Thanks!

    It seems like the confirmation emails are okay now, but I just picked up the domain name "quadcopterforum.com", so I'm going to be redirecting the forum to that name. Messages may go to the spam folder once again until email gateways realize that the messages are legitimate. Gmail and others like to send messages to the Spam folder when they start seeing email being sent from a new domain until enough people mark them as "not spam".

    Please continue to check your Spam folder if you don't see your confirmation email and if it's in there, be sure to mark it as "not spam".

    If you have any issues, please use the "Contact Us" link at the bottom of the page, or email us at admin (at) quadcopterforum.com

    Thanks!

    I find that many ISPs block e-mail transmitted through Port #25, if the e-mailer is not certified (by whom I have as yet to arrive at). I use a third-party mailer but that's not useful for the likes of this forum unfortunately.

    We're sending all mail now through a big well known service that has a good reputation. I get a lot of stats on delivery and reputation specific to the mails we send and we tend to get almost 100% delivery rates now.

    Whatever works. I use a company called Mail Chimp for my business mail.

    Yep. We use Mandrill, which is by MailChimp.

    One thing here, I get the Quadcopter E-mail Alerts, so everything else should be ok too. My spam folder is always too large to look at. More than often, I delete the contents without looking at more than the first 10 Subjects at most. It's possible that I missed any announcement if it went to my spam folder.
