Enable email messages via Forums

Postby Mort » Wed Jan 04, 2006 10:37 am

If you enable the "Always show my email address" under your profile, it will enable people to email you via the forum individually by clicking the "Email" button whenever they see your name in a post or in your profile.

At no time is your email address actually displayed anywhere, and the forum itself sends the email so the sender never sees your address either. This way you will be able to send someone a quick message from anywhere (all web based), and if some anonymous person joins the forum they won't be able to harvest our addresses for spam either.

All email related functions on the forums are handled directly by the server and no addresses are ever exposed in any form.

I thought I'd set the mail to digest. I'll have another go

There is no "digest" on the forums. I believe you are thinking of the bb email list which is totally unrelated to the forum settings.
