    Exclamation UPDATE YOUR EMAIL!

    During recent maintenance and software update, account email addresses were reset. Consequently email notifications of private messages and posts to subscribed threads, as well as password recovery could not be sent.

    Please go to your Settings (click on "Settings" in the upper right corner of any page), then go to "Edit Email & Password" in the left menu bar under "My Account". Make sure your current and valid email address is listed and click on "Save Changes" whether you changed anything or not.

    This will update your email notification settings and you should start receiving them again.

    Be sure to use a VALID email address!! If you make any changes, you will receive an email to verify the changes made to your account. You will need to click on the link in the email in order to carry on.

    Done...

    The verification email was a bit delayed and I thought I'd been banned from CPF....., no privileges until your verify.

    Is the 'e-mail address' connected to sending private messages to other forum members? I kind of like having an e-mail address being removed from a list.

    Done. My email address was blank. I added it, saved changes, received the email from CPF and verified by clicking the link. Now my email address is showing under "Settings/Edit Email & Password". Thanks Greta

    Ok. Wasn't sure if the lack of reported posts emails lately was the result of software glitches or people have just been behaving themselves. Lol.

    So that's what the flashing "update your email" at the top is for....

    Cool. I did not click it thinking it would lead to being bombarded with emails promising me 'as seen on tv' brightness in a 1aaa package.

    Thanks for this thread.

    Just updated mine, thanks!

    Putting the update alert in the advert bar was a good plan, by the way - I might not have noticed it otherwise.

    I had to re-register. My "old" user name was mike2636 but my email address was not recognized. Is there a way I can get access to my messages in the old account?

    I also registered again recently and I contacted Greta via my preferred email address. Greta graciously and very quickly reset my password and she assigned my email address to my old account so I could use my original account. Greta was simply fantastic.
