    Yup... You're lucky number 1, Gabe.
     
    We're already dealing with a few small issues... as expected... it's going to be "a process"...

    It won't **really ** feel like home until (a) @Tim_Roberts posts a patient, kind, and detailed reply to a newbie, (b) @anton_bassov does... something that will hopefully not get him set to "Troll Mode" -- Right?

    I notice the following things about the emails, and I'm wondering if
    these "features" are permanent.

    The messages have [OSR] in the subject line, but there's no mention of
    NTDEV anywhere.  They look like forum courtesy notifications, rather
    than mailing list entries.  The SMTP headers do not have any of the
    traditional mailing list headers (like X-List-Name).  The "From" address
    is now a magic address from vanillacommunity.email, with the users @id
    instead of an email address.  There is no "Sender" address.

    All of that means it is going to be difficult to have email rules to
    sort these into mailboxes, and it's impossible to distinguish [ntdev]
    messages from [ntfs] and [windbg].

    How much configuration control do you have?  Can you add an X-List-Name
    header with the name of the list?

    Are you really going to force me into using the forum interface?

    This has been fixed. Thanks to Mr. Vodicka who first reported the issue.

    Are you really going to force me into using the forum interface?

    Not if I can help it. OTOH, we have discovered an issue with sending emails, even to the "all email users" group. And this issue has caused the hosting folks to temporarily disable that capability.

    Working on the issue...

    Congrats, Peter!!!!

    Up to this point it seems to be looking and working just great

    Well, taking into consideration the "scary" functionality of the new platform, I am afraid I'll have to change my old habits. I don't know if it going to tell you something, but I even changed my password to new_xxxx, where xxx stands for my old password....

    </ironic mode>

  • anton_bassovanton_bassov Member Posts: 4,825

    Ooops, I have to take my previous "everything is working just great" message back - my post got mangled, so that the opening line somehow disappeared from it, although the closing </ironic mode> one still remained. I guess you should,probably,take a closer look at it

    Anton Bassov

  • anton_bassovanton_bassov Member Posts: 4,825

    ...and, to make it even more weird, exactly the same line got removed from my "complaint" as well. Let's see if it shows up in this one (although I am pretty sure it would not - the new platform seems to have some "auto-moderating capabilities" )

    Just changed the pink smiley icon I was given by default, in case anyone gets the wrong idea.
    I note that icons now need to be square otherwise distortion occurs. The default smileys are 268 x 268 pixels.

    Hi - a quick question - currently I only watch the threads here for
    interest - pending any return to driver coding which is always possible.

    Until now, emails have arrived with the original sender's email address,
    and most get trapped and labelled as spam as our traps are set to be
    quite tough. That means that my mechanism of routing non-spam ntdev etc
    messages requires manual intervention every day.

    With this change to your servers, I see the sender address now seems to
    be [email protected]

    Is this going the be the email sender on all emails from now on? If so I
    can simply whitelist this. Or is the sender's email address going to
    vary again?

    Thanks - would be nice to get them through the spam trap in one go for
    all...

    Thanks, Mike

    Hi Mike,

    Thanks for your note.

    I see the sender address now seems to be [email protected]
    ...
    Is this going the be the email sender on all emails from now on

    The current plan is that emails will always come from @vanillacommunity.email -- We might change this at sometime in the future, because we expect a great deal about how we handle emails to change over the course of the next year. But for NOW, you'll be safe white listing "vanillacommunity.email"
