    Email Address in profile


    Hiya,

    Please can everyone ensure they have a *valid* email address in their forum profile.

    You can automatically receive emails when someone replys to a thread you are watching, and also when you receive a private message. Both of these options can also be turned off in your profile if you wish.

    My personal mailbox is becomming flooded with "message could not be delivered" messages where people do not have a valid email address in their profile.

    Many Thanks,

    Jason

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but wouldn't the easiest solution to that be for you to create a procmail recipe that delivers those messages to /dev/null?

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but aren't we obligated to keep the email address up to date? (grounds for suspension/ban if neglected, you could send them warnings per PM (so you hear their side of the story -- in case it's a misstake/typo))
