Email notifications - "Be careful with this message"
« on: 03 April 2021, 12:23:54 »
Every time I get an email notification for a new reply to a followed thread or PM, Gmail slaps this big yellow warning on it.

Obviously I know the emails are legit and not some sort of phishing, but maybe something should be done with the domain settings to stop it from happening? Just wanted to make sure the admins were aware of it. No big deal.

In some WiFi networks I use I can't actually access the website since it is marked as a phishing and spam site.

Oof. That's quite a bit more problematic than a yellow box on the email notifications.

It's been over a year since I received an e-mail from the forum... I think AOL is blocking them entirely.

If they are using OpenDNS, that matter needs to be taken up with them. Same issue with the MegaMek sites and have been trying for several years to get them to fix it and nothing has changed.

It's been I have no idea how long since I've gotten an email from this forum. Not sure it's AOL blocking and the forum just not sending them.

Using Gmail to send emails would cause the issue. Forums need to use an email service (such as SES from Amazon, Mailgun, Mailchimp, etc) and setup DKIM would allow all the email to flow and should remove that warning.
