Attn: Café Staff,

I changed my email address awhile ago and I've been trying to update the info. in the [Edit Profile] tab. I enter my email in the correct box, and I enter my password at the top (as requested) However, I always get a message that says...

"Sorry, the email host address you entered is currently blocked."

I recently posted a topic and all of the replies are being sent to an address that doesn't exist (my old email).

Please PM me with instructions on how to fix this. Thank you!

Okay, I just read that addresses that are registered with free email service providers are NOT ALLOWED ON THE Café.

- I'm disappointed about this, but I still have a problem on my hands.
- All replies from my posts, PM's, etc. are being sent to an address that no longer exists. I DO NOT want anyone getting a hold of that information. It is personal and I do not wish to share it (even with my previous internet provider).

*** Is there a way to permanetly delete my old email address?

I don't have the money to get another paid one, and I don't want my personal info. sent to the old account.

Please let me know what the options are!

Thank you,
Jeff

Jeff, your PM's and post replies don't go to email. They are kept on the Café. you must have an email address to be on the Café. You can go to your preferences and click the option not to show the address if you wish.

Hi Dave / Café Staff,

I have been having the same problem as posted by Jeff, as I use GMail for all my official and personal correspondence. Since the advent of Google Mail (and what it did to the offerings of Yahoo, Hotmail, etc), very few people go for a paid email service.

I wished to update my old obsolete email id here... but the system does not allow me to do that. Is there an out?

Thanks & regards,

Nakul

Nakul, the use of free servers as a contact email address is not allowed. There isn't a workaround for this. Sorry

Suggestion: You have a domain name registered (nakulshenoy.com). You should be able to create an email account using your domain name. That would be a perfectly acceptable email address to use here.

Thanks Dave, Thanks Mary.

I am not sure I want to create a new email id. So I guess I will leave the obsolete one on my profile Smile

Thanks for your quick response.

Nakul, understand that if you keep an obsolete address on the Café, should you ever forget your password, we will not be able to send one to you. Passwords are automatically sent to the address on record.

This may never happen, but I thought I'd mention it just in case.

Nakul,

What about creating a forwarding e-mail address using your domain name to your gMail account?
