Excellent. Only one problem. The forums can send e-mail fine if I use my account to login (firstname.lastname@example.org
) but not our site's main e-mail account (email@example.com
). I contacted the help people again to find out why this is.
Which brings me to a somewhat related topic I wanted to make. Currently we have "firstname.lastname@example.org" serving as a sort of shared e-mail account with some of the higher-ups in the team. This is where hiring applications get sent and we use it to communicate with our potential hires. But I've found we need a more general-purpose e-mail address. Something that people can use to communicate with the team in general if they have questions, issues, etc. Its a lot better than having a contact person, or having a forwarding address (like email@example.com
is) that may forward to someone that has already left the team.
So here's what I want to do. Create a new e-mail account called "firstname.lastname@example.org" and remove the old email@example.com
account (it mostly gets spam right now and still an occasional third-country 3D modeler thinking they are joining a professional company). All correspondence via the forums, our website, bug tracker, wiki, and anything will show it being sent from firstname.lastname@example.org
, and people can reply to that address. I'm going to assume no one will object to this proposal. I'll implement this change when I have time.
