Thanks for the examples. Never heard of a single one of the them.

Thanks again, Para.

I just changed and it worked seamlessly.

Comcast has been active for this site alone, so glad I can put that email address permanently to bed.

Thanks Para. Happy to see improvements.





Imagine if everyone refused to accept mediocrity. Imagine if everyone gave their best, and refused to settle for half assed crap.

Thank you Para, I have emailed my friend who is a Vietnam vet who wanted to join earlier but couldn’t because of his email.

How do I update this info? When I registered, I used my work email, I’ve been retired for two years now and that email is no longer viable...my display email is correct but my registered email is dead.

Thanks, I too didn’t have access to my old email account since I no longer work there. No to fix my avatar.

Go to your profile, check the box that says 'Change Account Email' and enter your new email address, re-enter the same address in the next box to confirm the change, then scroll down to the bottom of the page and click 'Submit'. You should receive an email from the forum at that new email address inside of a minute. Click the link in that email to verify the address, and that's it.

The address I registered with was no longer valid due to a move. My current ISP out here in the sticks doesn’t offer email so that left me with Gmail and Apple. I’m very glad to see the policy change and have updated my profile, the process was fast and easy. Smile

Para,

Is a hotmail account considered disposable?
I tried to update my email but did not receive a confirmation link

Thanks

Nope, and you haven't made any changes to your account email address. If you did, and you had the issue you're describing, you wouldn't be able to post right now. You have to hit 'Submit' at the bottom of the page, or the change will not take effect.

If you had tried to enter a disposable email address, the software would have rejected it outright. You would have gotten a message on the page telling you that you had entered an invalid email address.

I tried to change it to my hotmail account yesterday, hit submit. i did not receive any email verification request. When i came back to SF, I got the "waiting for validation" i hit the "resend", no email. I was able to go back to my profile page and put my previous email back in. When i hit submit to that, i got the verification email on the old email address and clicked the verification link. That is how i am able to post now. I must have messed something up. I triple checked the new email address and i typed it correctly. Nothing was in my deleted or spam folders. Is there anything else you could think of, that i messed up that would cause the email to not come out?
Or have you heard of hotmail "filtering" SF addresses? If this is the wrong method of getting help please let me know.
Thanks.

Send me an email from the address you wish to use and I'll take care of it.

For anyone having such issues, check your spam folder to see if the verification email ended up in there.
