    Yahoo just notified me that they are accepting our emails now.

    Can anyone confirm? Also do the emails go into inbox or spam ?
    AsRock, jmcslob, qubit and 2 others say thanks.

    yahoo addresses for new registrations and update email are banned until it is 100% confirmed that this works

    so you cant register with a yahoo address ..... and you cant switch back to one...so unless somebody didnt change thats the only way youll be able to verify it works..if they didnt change and left their yahoo address...but even then you need to take in the probability that

    A. Those people even noticed it wasnt working to being with.

    B. that they will see this thread.

    C. that even if seen they will take the time to post.

    am i getting the picture?

    Sorry if this is irrelevant... :eek:

    About Yahoo I dunno,

    but originally I had registered here with my main ISP email (********@maltanet.net) and you had pm'd me asking me to change the email address I had registered with because all notifications sent were being returned back as undeliverable. They didn't even make it to my junk email box... :(

    So I had changed it to my hotmail which works just fine.

    Yes it's now working...

    A. I did think that it was unusual to not have any notifications, but have been too busy to actually check..

    B. Only just got an email notification and was browsing..

    C. Well I think I've answered that one..

    Hell yeah! Just got 70 in one go. :laugh: :rockout:

    I didn't change my address all this time, because I believed that Yahoo would see sense eventually. It was like a wilderness without alerts, I tell you, lol.

    EDIT: To clarify, they're ending up in my Inbox.
