I've just been on my registration page and there was a note on there saying that you had tried to email me but the address hadn't worked. The email address is current and correct though.

Are you having problems with hotmail addresses? I don't always get the newsletters either.

I'm now wondering how many competitions I've won that I don't know about grin[unlikely]

I had the same thing with hotmail, but I always get the roundup. Odd.

ooh it says that on mine too - I have hotmail too and the address is definitely working

I've got the same note on my registration page too, Tigs. But I get the newsletters OK ...

TigerFeet Tue 16-Sep-08 15:09:06

Sometimes I get them, sometimes I don't

Tis most odd

I'm not the only one, there have been threads about it before.

I was more intrigued about the note on my registration page tbh. Thought I might have missed something interesting.

Extract from Member Help....


I haven't received this weeks newsletter, what gives?
Please check your spam/junk folder as your service provider might have accidentally put it there. If this is the case please see the spam page, where you will find instructions on how to allow the newsletter into your Inbox.


So click here and hopefully this will solve your problems.

If not then we will investigate this issue further.

It doesn't solve the mystery of the messages in bright red writing on our registration pages though, BigTech!

Thannks BigTech - but as WWB says it was morea bout the red messages on my registration page! Or is it there because the newsletters aren't getting through?

BigTech (MNHQ) Wed 17-Sep-08 10:33:31

The reason for the red message is that our server (mumsnet) has received an error message from the server we are trying to send the message to (hotmail).

If the message gets through this week, it will disappear.....

BigTech's written this to explain things a little.

(Let us know if you make it through to the end grin)

TigerFeet Thu 18-Sep-08 12:27:50

Thanks both

I made it to the end... just... shock<- yawn grin

I'll fiddle with the spam settings and see how I get on.

FGS, don't let the pedants see that link Justine.

Heads would roll grin

TigerFeet Thu 18-Sep-08 12:55:53

I obviously didn't read it properly grin

<<goes back for another look>>

JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 18-Sep-08 22:03:04

You know we always include a few deliberate mistakes for the pedants wink

pssst St G, email me quick!

SaintGeorge Thu 18-Sep-08 22:14:54

I only skimmed through it but this sentence screamed at me:

"This means if there was problem a temporary glitch at the provider then the next one should be fine."


JustineMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 18-Sep-08 22:24:03

Yeh yeh - that was was of our deliberate ones - well spotted.

<<scuttles off to fix page>>

SaintGeorge Thu 18-Sep-08 22:25:00

Snort at typos in post about typos.

Obviously totally deliberate eh Justine? grin
