Mods: There's no way to contact forum members


#1

There's no PM feature in PunBB and the emails sent from WP email form go straight into email spam/junk folder.

How in God's name are we supposed to contact fellow forum members?


#2

there are modifications for punbb to install private messaging feature but KO...........

doessnt wana install any till 2010

and also there are chatbox mods etc..

cool mods are available

but/........ wait till 2010


#3

KO is really busy!


#4

KO's been KO.


#5

This has been stated time and time again, but lets repeat it one more time. FluxBB has a new release coming out (it was supposed to come out a couple weeks back but it got delayed), and KO is waiting for the release so he can upgrade to it. After the upgrade he plans on adding new extensions. So I would recommend people check their junk folder once a day at least! (I thought everyone did already! :/)

normally if you've got ur registration mail from wiredpakistan and its resting in ur inbox or one of ur folders...

ur mail provider would most probably direct all mails having the words wiredpakistan and ur name in it. atleast gmail seems to do so and you've to agree they've the best spam filters...

@ Abbas, I and many others here use Gmail and Gmail always puts WP emails in the spam folder.

@ sah, K thanks, waiting for the new release.

#11

Why don't you guys just create a filter so all emails from wiredpakistan go to your Inbox. How hard is that!

i ahve tried it doesnt work teh emails still go to the spam folder

@ruhaan: What filter settings did you use? When someone receives a message via the forum the first line reads like this:

"*Senders WP username here* from A Pakistani Tech forum has sent you a message. You can reply to Raamis by replying to this e-mail."

So you could create a filter which routes all emails containing the words 'A Pakistani Tech forum' to your inbox.

oh i just filtered the email address let me try this


#15

You can't filter the email address. Since the email you receive is from the persons email address and not from some username@wiredpakistan.com


#16

even filtrin with teh keywords doesnt work


#17

Hmm...I'll have to test it myself, then I'll hopefully be able to post some filter settings which work!

There is a problem with how the current version of the forum software sends out emails, it mangles the headers so many email services mark it as spam. The next version fixes this issue, so the spam problem will stop than.
