We want to advise our members why you might see Email Invalid (Bounced) when logging in to your account or for your account registration.

There are four reasons why you will see this:
  1. We tried sending you "A summary of what you missed recently" email.
  2. We tried sending you a notification that a thread you are following has been updated.
  3. You changed your password and we tried sending you the acknowledgement email.
  4. You are registering for the first time and never received the activation email.
tonymacx86 Forum Rules state "Accounts must be created and maintained using a valid permanent email address."

So why is your email from us not getting delivered?
  1. The email account does not exist.
  2. The email account is over quota.
  3. The email server is hosted on a Bulletproof Service Provider. See https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulletproof_hosting for a description.
  4. The email server is hosted on a service provider where they have had numerous hosts attacking our website. Because of that, we are blocking all of their address blocks to keep our site available. We cannot block or unblock specific address due to the amount of resources it would take to accomplish this.
  5. The email service provider is rejecting our email without giving us a rejection reason.
Now that you know why it's not getting delivered, here is how you can fix it:
  1. Provide a valid non-disposable or temporary email address from a reputable email provider.
  2. Move your email server to a reputable hosting provider.
  3. Clean up you email account so that any new email can be delivered.
  4. Contact your email provider to ask them why they are blocking our email.
Please do not send us a contact-us request for Email Invalid (Bounced), as we will not be able to reply based on the above stated reasons.
