Hotmail problems
I've been getting a number of failed e-mail deliveries from Fanres to Hotmail (and also a couple Protonmail) inboxes in the past two days. There doesn't seem to be an issue with other mail providers, so if you haven't been receiving e-mail notifications, you could try using another address, while I wait for my host to respond about this issue.

The problem has been present for the last couple of months with various intensity, but it doesn't seem that it can be fixed. Helpdesk from my hosting service was unhelpful, they claimed to have contacted Microsoft about this issue, and it did seem to have improved for a time, but now I'm getting many reports about undelivered messages again. If you are not getting subscription and notification e-mails, and are using a Microsoft e-mail (hotmail.com, hotmail.co.uk etc.), consider changing the address for your account on this forum.

I think we (read: you! Wink ) should add an advice in the registration page, something like "WARNING: hotmail email address is not supported" - don't know if it's possible to add as a banner, or the registration page should be edited.

I use multiple addresses, and use a gmail one exclusively for the virtual sphere.

It's acting up again, if you have Microsoft's e-mail (hotmail, live etc), you may not receive e-mails from the forum - so no notifications about PMs, new replies, or even password resets. The last time it happened, my hosting provider wasn't very helpful, and after investigation basically said, that users have to report the problem to Microsoft themselves. If you really want to use Hotmail address with the forum, the problem may resolve itself like it did a couple years ago, but you should consider changing to literally any other provider.
