I have only just managed to join, despite several attempts. It turns out that all messages have been blocked by gmail, not even reaching the spam folder. Gmail has no white list to which to add the qi.com domain. I have added elves@qi.com to my address book. Will this catch all the emails I am due to receive from the forum? If not, how do I go about receiving notifications without having to log in to my ISP's webmail specifically to check?

Thanks muchly in advance for your help. I hope I get some notification when your replies come in!

I have googlemail/gmail as my account as well. It notifies me (if I wish) of threads I have subscribed to, etc.
Private messages are obtained when you log into the site.
In fact, EVERYTHING is done when you log on to the site.
Unless you actually give out your email address.
Are there any additional e-mails you were expecting?

Oh, and 'Welcome to Qi Forum', Chris !

Thanks, Vikki. And I was indeed notified of your reply to my post, it coming through the elves. Not expecting anything in particular, but if "web@qi.com" or some such was used occasionally, I would need to add each new address to my address book in order to receive it.

Rest assured Chris, all emails sent out from the talk forums will come from the address "elves@qi.com". Now you've added that to your whitelist, things should work fine from now on.
