Also, the "I've forgotten my password" function can only send a new password to the email address we have on file. If that is not up to date, the email goes nowhere (or to an old address you no longer use).
Please, please, please, please, please everybody, if you change email accounts, go into "My Controls" here and update your address with us.
The way this IPBoard software works, giving us your email address will NOT make it available to spammers. And, even if you check the option to allow email to come to you from the board, the address itself is masked so that it does not actually display; the person sending email to you can only get your address if you respond to them via email. (This is why we are constantly reminding people NOT to post their addresses in messages on the board! It's not necessary: people --not spammers!-- can contact you if your email preference allows it.)
Okay, now my rant is OFF!
Y'all have a great day!
