    You're not in the bounced email group now. I guess your provider had a problem and solved it quickly.

    No it didn't. Look again.

    You joined using the manual system and your membership hasn't been processed yet. After it gets processed you will find you have the option of joining the Gold Membership Group.

    You are not in the Bounced Email Group.

    Your membership upgrade has not been processed yet. When it is you will see the option to join the Gold Membership Group. That will probably happen sometime during East Coast US business hours tomorrow.

    I got the message that I was in the Bounced Email Group and all of my subscriptions were deleted. That would be fine except that I was using some of those subscriptions, with no email being sent, to track knives I had purchased. I can see that was a mistake. I have no problem with email but occasionally, a hiccup occurs and email is bounced. There is no way I can control it since my email is entirely internet based. I think the policy of deleting all subscriptions, even those that don't generate email, is draconian. It makes the entire subscription feature useless since subscriptions could be deleted, without warning, at any time. I will track purchases some other way in the future.

    I replied to the PM, but if that doesn't work... can I please be taken out of the Bounced Email Group.

    edit: I removed myself from the group.

    Thanks, Jim

    Spark -

    With due respect and consideration, I think that a total ban after just one warning is unduly harsh regarding this particular issue.

    Reason being that it involves third parties (email providers, ISP's, etc.) over whom we do not have control...certainly not immediate control.

    I have started getting the doomsday message and I don`t know why my email is the same it has always been and I get auto emails from my subscribed posts with no problem.

    I can't tell what you are using subscriptions for (or anyone for that matter). What I can tell is when I start getting 50 or so bounced emails going to jgkelly. That wastes my time, especially when it's repeated by 50 users. Daily. The first couple times I ignore it and just delete the emails out of my inbox. When it persists, I take action.

    You can do it however you want, but if your emails bounce, the subscriptions are gone. I can't pick and choose what subscriptions I delete - the option I have is delete them all or leave them alone. If I leave them alone, I get bounced email.

    Which is why you aren't banned immediately - your subscriptions are deleted and you are back to square one. You are expected to fix your email or switch to one that works. If you don't and keep on the merry path, then I'm going to ban you simply because I don't have time to waste on someone who's unwilling to have working email but wants to fill my inbox with bounced messages.

    Chances are you are just noticing it then. The new notification system just came into place with the software upgrade.

    Spark would it be helpful to write a E-mail filter that deletes your bounced mail messages? Are they useful for anything?

    Yes, they serve a purpose. For example, if I'm sending you messages and you are ignoring them, or your mailbox is full, then that's different than if they aren't getting to you because your ISP is dumb.
