    Hi all,

    As many of you have seen, the email integration to the new Amphicar forum is now working. Should you want to turn OFF instant delivery of posted messages just click on the "unsubscribe" link at bottom of any message received (such as this one). This will not eliminate you from the forum, it will only stop email delivery.

    Question for all of you. As you can see, all messages from the forum use a single email address. Many users like this setting to allow incoming rules to process the e-mails using Outlook rules. Alternatively, it could be set to the name of the person posting. Anyone have a preference?

    I will be putting together a transition FAQ soon.

    Thanks,

    Mike

    Need Input on Amphicar Frum Email Settings

    My only issue with how they are currently coming is
    that I don't know who sent them if they don't sign the
    message. If possible I'd prefer to see the name of
    the person posting but when I hit reply I'd like it to
    go to the list.

    And people in He?? want ice water!

    Otherwise it seems to work nicely. Even on the MAV.

    OK, that was easy. I like it. You see who sender is but subject line still shows it is a forum message and default reply address is still the group. Just like in Yahoo. I will leave it this way for now.

    I like the new board, it is easier to view all items contained within the topic you are looking at. Thanks for all the hard work and time that you have put into this transition.:cool:

    I tried to get a Daily Digest like I used to get with the old Yahoo group, and it doesn't work. All I get is (between the ==== signs):

    All the best,
    Welcome to The Amphicar Lovers Digest / Forum
    =======================================

    But as you can see, no text of the messages. That is a pain. I'll try another setting, but I really liked having a daily summary.

    The setting for instant delivery will give you full text of messages. Daily digest just gives headers. Will see if I can modify that but not sure yet,
