Hi all,
When the project started i didn't recieve an e-mail that notify me, so what happened?? Is it possible that it came as junk mail???
To prevent that happening again please give the e-mail that you will contact me through, so i put it in the friends list.
Thanks in advance

Hi friend tareq,

Good to see you ! Welcome back.

Check your profile for your E-mail address on file. Something happened when they
were sending out the E-Mails as I did not get one either ! Lots of members did not
get their e-mail for some reason.

Happy dusting,

fjgiie

We did send out the email.

There were nearly 115,000 emails in the list. It took the server several hours to complete the job. However, it appears that some unknown number of addresses were randomly skipped by the mail server. There was no way for us to know which were sent and which were not. We didn't want to spam lots of people by sending it twice.

It was probably for the best that not everyone heard right away since the server was brought to its knees in the first hour by the load and we had to take it off-line and repair it and eventually replace it with a better one.

For what it's worth, I didn't get the email either... :?
