Registering on Silver Stackers with Hotmail accounts

Discussion in 'Forum News / Announcements' started by Administrator, Aug 12, 2013.

  1. Hotmail has decided it does not like the silverstackers.com domain, and is rejecting all emails from the forum. If you are trying to register on Silver Stackers with a Hotmail account, at this time it is not possible, as Hotmail will simply not deliver the email to you.

    The problem is being investigated on this end, however if you would like to register, please use an alternative email service in the meantime.

    Thank you.

    The silverstackers.com SPF record has a soft fail for ip/names not in the google SPF (_spf.google.com).

    Your current SPF is:
    "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ~all"

    This would most likely cause a lot of forum notification emails to end up flagged as spam or rejected.


    Your SPF record should include the IP where your forum is hosted with a hard fail. e.g.
    "v=spf1 include:_spf.google.com ip4:27.131.79.110 -all"

    Worst email service in the world. Occasionally flags genuine purchase receipts we send to customers as spam (if they even get there) - and we use a high-rated provider :(

    GP just tell people if they have a hotmail address to trash it and move to the 21st century. Piece of crap.
