I carried out one of our very rare mailings last night to 1,500 established and active members, of these Emails, one third were bounced with invalid Email addresses.

These members have all been automatically changed to "User Awaiting confirmation of Email address" and then after 30 days will be deleted by a vBulletin scheduled task, unless the user logs in and changes his Email address and confirms it.

We don't send out Emails very often and even then only to members who have agreed to receive them, but when members either bounce our mail or do not keep their addresses up to date, we get flagged up as a spammer and this we don't want.

So please all members look at your registered Email address and check that it is valid, otherwise don't be surprised if the word "Guest" appears under your name and you have to register again and start from scratch.

It ain´t in there unless you sent it under the name of sexy suzan. I´ll double check my email address in the CP section, give us a sec...

Nope, my email address is correct under the CP Rolf... any ideas?

They may still be going out, as I'm getting a stream of Mail Delivery System notifications through still. :)

Looks like there may have been a subsequent problem with the outgoing mailserver, so apart from the first 500 or so, I don't reckon the others got past the gate. :)

Don't know zorba, unfortunately I'm not too au fait with the inner workings of the vBulletin mailer, just know that it is less than perfect. :)

We may have to look for an alternative way of producing our occasional mailouts, as this one obviously doesn't work that well and also cripples the forum for half an hour or so while it merges the content with the user details.
