    Acceptable email address questions

    WS Admin? Since I have been a member for a year and have an AOL account, how or will this affect me? Is there anything I have to do or change? I'm not signed up to receive an email when a thread I am interested in is updated, only because I am interested in so many, so I just go to those threads and read. Is this a problem? I hope I have no worries in this regard because I love WS and would hate to lose my access or membership because of AOL. Thank you in advance.

    Sorry to sound dense, but why can't I get email from WS? I mean other than if I elected to be notified about threads I am posting in (which I haven't). I can't remember if I ever have or not, but what sort of email would I get? I mean why would WS contact me by email rather than PM? I remember at one time Tricia needed us to give her our email addresses and at that time I wasn't told that my aol email was a problem. I know I sound dumb but unfortunately, I am one of the computer illiterates. Thanks in advance, Adnoid. You are always one of the brains around here!

    Why would you get mail from the board?

    --You are signed up for email alerts. But it appears you are not.

    --Another member wants to send you an email and you have allowed this.

    --An admin wants to send you an email and you have allowed this.

    --You want to reset your password or email address
    I'm an AOL'er too, I could change it to comcast, but what a hassle to notify you guys. I can add WS to my address book and it would get to me just fine.

    So ... if a mod wanted to send me an email from WS, what address should I put into the book? Not that I anticipate getting anything, but I did get birthday greetings!

    Thanks!

    i have a query...i have a web-based email account...well...3 really: one that i use regularly, another that i use for 'professional' reasons (on my CV, aka resumé) and another that i use for MSN messenger. anyway, the first 2 are yahoo and WS rejected the one i use regularly, so i tried the 'professional' yahoo addy & that worked. could it be because of the name on the one i use regularly? don't really want to post it here for obvious reasons...it's not an obscene name, just a bit kitschy.

    hope this makes sesne!

    My registered email address is my work email, I've just left that job and my only personal email is AOL. Is it ok to update my email to the AOL address?

    Gmail question

    I have been a member on websleuths since 2009 but recently lost my job which was the email address I used. I only have a gmail account now. What happens now? Will I still be able to post replies despite using an email address that is no longer active?

    My friend is trying to join here to post about the Krista Dittmeyer case and is having trouble because of the email thing. She is unable to use the ISP provider because in order to set up an account there it needs to be in her moms name.

    HI, my daughter has been trying to register with WS. For some reason she is having trouble doing this. I thought I might be able to help her.
    This is her information: hi mama, here is my info/email address:

    <personal information snipped>

    Hi WS mods.

    When I joined here, I had a work (government) email address.

    I now freelance and work from home so my only email addy is my gmail one.

    Is this an issue? I don't think I would be getting emails from WS anyway, but just in case, I was wondering...

    Thanks :-)

    Not at all. If you need help changing it to your gmail account, send me a message privately and I'll do it for you.
