    Forum platforms not requiring email

    So I recently had a problem member. (The kind that banning doesn’t solve because out-of-band comms with other people and banning just increases their “I’m the VICTIM here” rhetoric) Turns out there were other red flags, like on joining this individual was super super cautious about “who could...

    Webhost, Domain and Email server on same company?

    I'm not sure if this is the best forum for this, you can of course move it. But I would like to know if TAZ members think it is best to have your web-hostings, domain name and email server all with the same company. I am thinking from the point of view of ease of set up and maybe moving hosts...

    Other Email control panel

    Quick poll to understand how much everybody knows. I've probably worked more on email than any other section of running servers. No email = no validated users. If you do vote, share what you do know already. If you have had any difficulties or have any questions about how email generally...

    The Right Way To Do Email

    What is the right way? For years I have used email addresses I set up in cPanel for the domains I own. I make sure each domain has a webmaster email address (these I forward to a single email account). I have a info@ type address - I use a different name than info, but it's the same idea - for...

    Does anyone put ads in their forum notification emails?

    Is that allowable with ad networks? If not, what about private site sponsored ads? Do you use image ads or just text? As I imagine the image ads could get blocked from loading by many email clients unless the user specifies to load them?

    Email the unseen problem

    Most of us on here running forums use email as a method of validating a user. Back 15 years ago, this was a "real" solution to prevent spammers from registering. With low cost domains (info's for 99c! anybody) spammers can now enter almost any email address they want to use. This has led to...

    My server doesn't allow mass mailing, can vBulletin stagger emails?

    I'm currently on a budget server. It doesn't allow mass emailing, but it tolerates regular emails. Is there a vbulletin feature that allows staggering emails? Another thing I was thinking about doing was mass re-setting all of the accounts to "get email upon PM" and then writing a script to...
