I seem to have finally traced down the troubles with the forum sending emails. The short version is that our DNS provider made a mistake, which in turn made Google think we were spamming, which in turn made our DNS provider think our account was under attack and lock updates.

Combined with a few changes on Google's side that made this very difficult to repair smoothly, and it was quite a fiasco.

As of now, the forum appears to be correctly sending mails again, and I sincerely hope it "sticks" now. My sincere apologies for the troubles.

Thank you, Proteus for looking into it! I've would have never guessed that!

Indeed, Thank you!  Manually activating the new accounts was starting to lose it's novelty value!  Grin

Sounds like a right mess, which of late seems to be the case with anything involving Google and the words "a few changes"... Roll Eyes
