    Until either Microsoft stop being dicks and blocking us simply because because our emails are deemed generic (as most are template driven ones) or I find a fix

    Yeah. We are having no issues with Gmail so a gmail account you use just for this site which either you forward to your main account or just use it separately works well

    Just turn off email notifications from the site? Why would you ever need an email from BantamTalk anyway?

    I'm not bothered to be honest. Didn't even know if they were on or not. It's just that this message at the top of the screen is a bit annoying every time I log on. I've had my hotmail account for about 20 years so I'm not going to change it now,.

    Seriously its advice like that which most likely has Microsoft seeing Xenforo generated emails as spam and then blocks them before they even get to the persons mailbox. NEVER mark emails that aren't spam as spam, if they are emails you don't want you should unsubscribe.

    You don't have to change your email address, you are allowed more than one email. All anyone is suggesting is either you create a backup email and either set it to forward to your main address or if you are only ever going to use it for things like password recovery just only login when you actually need to use that function

    How long will this be up for? Or will it stay indefinitely? It's a little annoying when browsing on the mobile.
