I can't see any reason you shouldn't have received it. I'm going to click on the "Email this thread" link. Let me know if anything arrives.

Mass Email to Non-recently Active Members Sending Now
I modified the email to say that the older thread hasn't been recently active.
Initial indications are that the emails of about 1/3 of members who haven't visited within the last 90 days are no longer valid.

Re: Mass Email to Non-recently Active Members Sending Now
For accurate participation rates, should you differentiate between members who had under 5 posts vs members who participated and then left, such as sidelined or schrafinator?
I think Faith is still our top poster even though she has been indefinitely suspended for two years! jar gave her a run for a while, but he is currently inactive as well.
Other notables include Brad McFall, Mr. Hambre, and Holmes.

Spam folder, maybe? I'm not getting any bounceback messages.

Re: Mass Email Just Sent
I'm going to say more than you need to know because this post will serve as a record for what I learned.
Emails from EvC Forum are being blocked by your email service's spam checker. I checked the mail log and saw this (I've inserted some formatting for readability):
Sep 17 11:39:49 qwixotic postfix/smtp[354538]: D96286604FC: to=,
relay=mx.centurylink.net[206.152.134.65]:25, delay=8817, delays=8786/0.27/30/0, dsn=4.7.1,
status=deferred
(host mx.centurylink.net[206.152.134.65] refused to talk to me: 550 5.7.1 [C16]
RBL Restriction: See Abusix Intelligence | Abusix)
Following the Abusix link, it says this:
Abusix:
This list contains domains and IPs that we have seen being used links in the message body of spam.
Grammatical error is theirs. Abusix thinks evcforum.net is fine. The domain it thinks has the problem is qwixotic.com, which is the domain for the company that owns EvC Forum that isn't used at all except as the domain for the server itself. But qwixotic.com runs no email service, and it would be pointless to put that domain in the body of an email because I never created a webpage for it. The control panel just throws up a default webpage. Just for the heck of it I just now added a default webpage that says only "Qwixotic".
I use free online blockcheckers that check with dozens of blocklisting services, and our IP isn't listed at any of them, including three Abusix lists:
BlacklistReasonTTLResponseTime
OK
Abusix Mail Intelligence Blacklist604
OK
Abusix Mail Intelligence Domain Blacklist4
OK
Abusix Mail Intelligence Exploit List3
I think Abusix is screwing up somewhere. I put in a request to be removed from the list, but I won't be surprised if nothing happens. Yes, your email arrived, but my replies won't get through until Abusix takes me off their list.

Re: Mass Email Just Sent
It must be nice being a genius on this stuff.
Believe it or not I understood. Anyway, if there is nothing I can do on my side I'll go back to playing.
Thank you, Percy.

I'm home on a good connection now and I'm seeing a red box with "image not found" all over the place now.
I see four of them in your post Percy - the very first smilie, the 7th and the last two.



In preview, all those show as image not found for me.
This is the underlying emoticon in one of Phat's posts - post 123 of the Conspiracy theory thread

Safari 15.6.1
This is what I see
Ok, just checked using google chrome - it works fine with that browser
It also works fine on iPadAir with Safari software version 15.6.1. Weird.
