Password retrieval email
« Topic Start: December 17, 2013, 02:01:38 AM »
I noticed the password retrieval mail doesn't seem to be working... so whenever I forget (and I do a lot) I have to access my secret password file that can only be accessed through means X and Y. I use outlook.com and the e-mail doesn't even pop up in the spam box.

Alright, I made a couple of small changes - I'm going to send you an Email through the server to see what happens.

I didn't see an e-mail so far... I doublechecked my block list and miskie.net is not in it.

Okay -

Make sure neither octogon-group.com  or 208.115.246.162 are blocked. - Email from The Sock uses the server's name and primary IP.

well, it must be something with outlook.com, I guess. I changed the email address using mail forwarding via my own domain to gmail and I got the message (fortunately, or I would have deactivated myself)...

I still couldn't find anything in my block list though...

I can change to my other outlook address to see if that has the same problem, but it's risky because I could deactivate my account without the means to reactivate it.

Just to make sure I understand what I read above -

You are using a Microsoft Email service, and the test message I sent wouldn't arrive. But when you chose to forward your messages to a non-Microsoft Email account, it did ? That is really odd.

I just changed my account email to a non-ms one.

That solved the problem for me, but I'm still a little curious as it seems there's problems receiving emails from this site when using a MS email service.

Samor, might I suggest a password manager if you find yourself with more login details than can easily be remembered? Hopefully it'd side-step this email issue altogether.

I'm a big fan of LastPass myself.

Yeah, that worked fine (after I pulled it out of my Spam folder).

Now it happened; needed to change the email address but I'm locked out, not getting a re-activation mail.... I had forgotten that could happen.
