    Would this be the glitch that allows private messages to be sent to me, when they are addressed to somebody else? This has happened on a few occasions but not regularly.

    I would have prefered 'fetch' because the software pop up suggests that not all my email may be forwarded, and would explain why some 'went awol'. But I suppose I will just have to get into the habit of checking the forum email more often.

    I decided to ignore the pop up and just did a forwarder. It worked on testing, just puzzled. No idea what an spf record setup even is ????

    I have email addresses set up in the forum. It was suggested in a forwarder popup that, as I am using gmail, it would be better if I used 'fetch email' instead of forwarding email. So I went into my gmail account and tried to fetch email from my forum email address, but it kept coming up that the server refused access even though the name and password is correct. I even activated pop in gmail in case that was the problem, still no difference. Any ideas anybody, please?

    Cant see any mention of this but I would like to thank the lads and lasses at IP for their brilliant customer support, in some cases, patience, and for the fabulously solid forum software. I cannot understand why people still use 'inferior' products when this is by far the best on the planet. I came over from vBulletin, best move I ever made.
     
    Happy, wealthy, and healthy new year to all the staff and to the members of this forum. Long may you reign.

    The unsubscribe link in this threads email notifications does not work, yes I changed it manually.

    they didnt. I had 3.5.5 (whatever) and IE11 would not work so I sent in a ticket.
     
    The reply I got was - use *text* in *this* place and that when upgraded to 3.5.6 it is already installed, so I did, and it worked. Then later on I got it upgraded anyway.
     
    The fix was available as a manual, but not an auto until last upgrade which I got late because I never saw the notification.

    someone couldn't find it:

    default skin, global template/global template, 6 lines down say:
     
    $ie11fix = "edge"; if (isset($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT']) && (strpos($_SERVER['HTTP_USER_AGENT'], 'Trident/7') !== false)) $ie11fix = "EmulateIE10"; </php> <meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE={$ie11fix}" />   It was the last line I changed.

    Strange but then again MS are a law unto themselves and I am sure they are not averse to 'tweaking' software to annoy people in the business they had a tiff with???
     
    It working brilliantly with me now since I adjusted a single line of text last month.

    FF and chrome have spyware and adware, untick boxes on install and run checks after installation.

    Excellent thank you. I am in win 8.1 Pro with IE11 built in, and my forum went the same, now fixed (I Think)

    I think I might have solved it. Instead of my clicking on the speech bubble between <> and the twit logo, I clicking on the folder 'paste' first of the three brown ones. It said:
     
    Because of your browser security settings, the editor is not able to access your clipboard data directly. You are required to paste it again in this window.
    Please paste inside the following box using the keyboard ( Ctrl/Cmd+V ) and hit OK   I just tried it in my forum and I still had to use the brown folder and paste into the box, but this time it did not tell me the browser security settings prevented etc etc
