    Please note that any email addresses related to hotmail, live, outlook, or any other Microsoft owned domains will no longer work and your account will be set to a bounced email status.

    This is due to Microsoft, in their wisdom, placing the server IP address on an email blacklist.

    I recommend using gmail or an alternative domain.

    So is that going to effect my login or just mean I won't get emails for alerts?

    Any emails sent by the site to those addresses are being rejected by the MS servers.

    So you won't receive them.

    Subsequently, the forum will mark your account as invalid, which will require email confirmation to reset it.

    However, any emails sent by the site to those addresses...

    Well, you see the problem.

    Yes, but once the account is set to the email bounce status, a message will be displayed to you stating that your email address is invalid.

    To clarify, this is all due to Microsoft and their ridiculous (incorrect) policy - they have done the same to many other servers so this site is not alone.

    It does seem a bit stupid of them.

    Sorted now. Thanks Brogan.

    Ironically RasputinLives, the email address generated as part of your email change bounced :D

    Anyway, I submitted an unblock request to MS and they have stated that:

    How generous of them :rolleyes:
