Are YOU bouncing eMails with Out-of-Office auto-replies!!!

Post by HarryMann »

From Announcements.... Your registered eMail addresses - *** RULES ***

http://forum.club8090.co.uk/posting.php ... &p=7354861

.........
..............
Also, PLEASE, do not use an eMail address where you set it to 'Out of Office auto-reply' ! :roll:
..........
.........
........


This one was put in BOLD for a reason... because people forget or are ignorant of the implications of things they do, or hand over to automatic systems
OoO auto-replies are effectively 'bounced mails' which inundate forums like ours (with 10,000 members)

So when you get a reply to a subscribed thread or a Notification of a new Private Message etc. .. it is WE who get infomed you are on a jolly somewhere, which WE do not want to know

Thanks, please exclude 80-90 notification address from your Office Email OoO AR Rules or if you cannnot then don't use a business email address

Thanks

[Admins]

Shouting PLEASE is a bit different than just shouting anything that comes into your head

Yup, sure is when the holiday time comes around.
It's server bandwidth and traffic, as well as a nuisance that pollutes genuinely useful notifications & warnings

Would be nice to ignore all failure notifications, and point then into thin air.. perhaps we will, and stop shouting about it :roll:

I dunno why you don't just turn it off. If I want to see if anyone's PM'd me or replied to any of my posts I just log on and have a look.....

I've reset the 'Notify me on new private messages:' to 'No' so that's me in the clear :wink:

when i got back from cornwall, i had 72 emails from the forum, comprising of OoO Notes, Bouncing Forwarding , incorrectly replied to forum emails and imaginary addresses that dropped in the catchall , added to the 127 membership emails, 44 " confirmation" emails and "doh, i cant remember if i registered or not" emails, and the usual 10 or so i cant login emails , then YES it is worth shouting about..... :lol:
