To All:

 

I just tried to change my forum e-mail address to a GMAIL account... And it won't allow it???

 

Says this type of account is not allowed...

 

Couldn't find anything in the on-line HELP section... So I thought I would post here to see if anyone else had this same problem...

 

THANKS!

Why would you want a GMAIL Account? Everytime I post an Ad on Craigs List, Vehics, Ebay and other Sites, I always get a lot of Spam Emails and several Emails trying to Con me and 90% of the Spam and 100% of the Con Emails show a GMAIL Account.

Any one of the "generic" hosts any better than the other???

 

I got tons of SPAM and JUNK Mail thru the corp account I was previously using...

 

Even to the point that our legitimate out-going mail was being blocked by Yahoo & several other public domains...

 

Open to suggestions :lurk:

I would suggest Yahoo. You can also get free AOL email but there is that stigma of being an AOL user :)

Some Companies and some People set their Email Settings so that if certain Words are used in the Subject Box (and sometimes in the Email Context) it will Block it. I have Yahoo Email Addresses and ComCast Email Address and I rarely get the Spam (unless it is from Posts mentioned above).

If you don't mind spending a little money, you can purchase a .NAME domain - these are usually for personal use. You can get info on them here - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/.name. Registrars such as GoDaddy usually have email plans so you can use your own domain through GoDaddy's email systems.

My gmail account works fine for all the forums I post on and everything else that I sign up for. I like how it works with my G1 phone also.

I also have a comcast account that gets zero spam but it's only used for personal stuff. I don't sign up for anything with it.
