Hotmail or any Microsoft e-mail users

Microsoft (along with several other email providers) use aggressive anti-spam tools to help protect you. Unfortunately, some of the "rules" that these tools use quite often treat most forum-generated emails as junk.

In order to ensure that you receive the e-mail alerts from the forum for things like replies to threads you are watching, conversation messages (PMs),mentions, and especially the initial account confirmation email, I strongly suggest that you add the forum URL to your Safe Senders list. Here is a step-by-step guide:

1) Log into your e-mail account online

2) If you have already registered, you might see the Confirmation e-mail in the junk folder. Even if you don't, follow all these steps! There is a reason!

3) Find the Settings wheel in the upper right corner of the window. Hover/click on that, and select Options

4) Locate and click Safe Senders under Junk Mail

5) Enter the URL of this site as "" as shown below, and click the "+" sign to add it to the list

6) Click Save

That's it! All messages from the site will now go directly to your inbox!

It's important to note that only marking a message that is in the Junk folder as "not junk" does not automatically add that e-mail address to your Safe Senders list - thus, it does not guarantee that future messages from the forum will not be treated as junk.
