    The new and improved BaptistMail is ready.

    www.BaptistMail.com

    Baptistmail has been moved to a new email provider on a new server. In addition to the updated software BaptistMail will now be filtered by Cleaninter.net. This should greatly reduce the amount of spam that is recieved by Baptistmail members.

    All members will have to re-register. No accounts were carried over from the old server. To keep receiving mail at your old baptistmail address you need to sign up again with the same address as the old account.

    Guess what? Our very first email at that address this time was an advertisement for a masculine sort of thing!

    I liked the old Baptist Mail just fine. I never got any spam but then I used it as a personal account for close friends only and a few causes that did not conflict with the word Baptist. Right now I have 4 different e-mail accounts with 3 different websites. Most of the spam that I get is with my everyday account with my ISP. I am careful about putting general e-mail correspondents in special accounts where I am willing to abandon the account in case it gets spammed to death.

    One mistake that I have made that attracts spam is to use a simple address. In the course that I took at Ivy Tech State College here, I learned that the best address is a jumble of letters and numbers with no rhyme or reason.

    hmmmm.....Seems to be a dud here. I created account and sent it an email from my ISP account. Nothing arrived, so I sent another from my ISP account to all my web-based email addresses at once. Still nothing as yet.

    Oh, it might depend upon your ISP. Some of them are filtering out replies as spam. The reason that I know this is that it was posted above in the announcements. The webmaster said on July 11 for Earthlink users:

    The "SpamBlocker" service blocks the email you get with your password.

    Without this email, you can never log on.

    Either add "[email protected]" as an allowed sender, or turn off SpamBlocker when you register. I'm getting way too many confirmation emails AND complaints that the mails aren't going through.
    That was for Earthlink users.

    On January 17, the Webmaster wrote that "Emails sent by our server to AOL mailboxes continue to bounce, so please sign up for a free email account at Yahoo, etc."

    These posts are in the BaptistBoard.comAnnouncements at the very top of this message board. You may have to set it to go back a year or show all messages.

    I happened to be reading the Announcements recently and e-mailed them to myself at Yahoo. Then when I had to re-register at BaptistMail, I used the Yahoo account and it worked fine. I think that Yahoo is the number one hub on the internet now--does anyone know for sure?

    Hope this helps.
