I contacted my host

abelohost.com/

wrote them an email waiting to hear back

I have admin@thescenereleases.net Which when someone PM's me on my board I'll get an email stating I got a PM.

See attachment.


For some strange reason I have thescene@thescenereleases.net which I don't ever use

But, if I want to get to my admin email I have to log into 'thescene' email log out and then log into the other email

Now. once I log into 'thescene' email there's tons of messages that read as subject lines

'Mail delivery failed: returning message to sender' . I only want one email address.. But, I hope my host can help.

Could this be the problem that I have two emails?

I did take a picture of my board with the SMTP settings, to let them know

Maybe I need to set up the SMTP??!

Sorry for the long ass rant!

No you can have several mail addresses for your family or company as long if you use the right settings for your board.
(from admin@thescenereleases.net)

Does your host allow to send mass mails?

From host

Hello, David

Mass E-Mail is not possible from shared hosting. Let me know if we can do anything else.

Best regards,
Jovan




So, there any work arounds, or anything?

Nope, I didn't even get one.

There's not a service for free that I can use SMTP?

My question was, can you send a PM (private message) to anyone or not?
And if you can, do the receive the PM?
Mass E-Mail is not possible from shared hosting. Let me know if we can do anything else.
If your host say, you can't send emails it it useless to try it I think?
