    I recently mentioned I could get no email from this board when I had "spamdyke" running, because it flagged everything from this board as spam (for legitimate reasons, "DNS did not point back to a valid domain"). Maybe they tried to fix that problem and now nothing is being sent, or nothing is getting through.

    Thought I was going mad when I had no notifications, how are we to respond to peoples questions if we dont know they have posed them?

    Without notifications we have to scour the posts to see if we are involved in any and then re-read each 1 to see if our coments are needed, too much hard work!!

    I use the New Posts menu option

    Also I have the posts listed in newest order, so I don't have to scroll to the bottom of the list to see the newest post...

    We are looking into this problem. It is not anything that has been intentionally turned off.

    I agree the email are nice..

    Never a doubt about the Packers, eh? Yes we're still having fun with it, but now getting ready for the Brewer's season too..

    Do you follow college basketball over the pond there?

    Lenny,

    I hope there is a solid backup system in place for the messageboard. If ever the info here would get lost then that would be a real drama...

    We do get a fair amount of coverage via ESPN over here. Do you follow the Badgers?

    Is this still broken?

    I have registered to other threads to learn from other suggestions to questions but dont know if any replies were made to them, this is very frustrating.

    Thanks Peter. By the way you are close to the Alpha guys.
    Please bring them some donuts and coffee, that may help to advance the cure for the problem.
