    FYI, apparently Google upped their email security game over the past couple of days and as a result emails weren't working from this board for a few days.

    (Apparently we were using IPV6 to send email, but didn't have the proper reverse DNS entry for IPV6 set up, which is a bit of a pain, so I just reconfigured the server to only use IPV4, problem solved).

    Thanks to @Revengeofthenerds for pointing it out.

    I've therefore just updated and rebooted the server and it should be working.

    If it's not, please let me know.


    Thanks...

    Not sure if this applies, but I forgot my password and need to reset it as I have a new computer. I have not received the reset email after two or three attempts. Can you help me with this?

    Is the email on your profile correct?

    I’ll reset later and email you the temp password. You can then change it to whatever you like.

    I'm about to do the reset now... email incoming shortly.

    And yes, you guys can change your emails: select your avatar/username in the top right, then "contact details", enter your new email, save changes.

    No worries... not sure why you didn't get the email. I tested it with another account and it seems to work.

    Oh well... not worried about it tonight I don't think.
