    Default Website email flooded

    If anyone has tried to email me at any point in time between March and now, I didn't get your email.

    Unfortunately, my former email account was wide open to spam, and becuase this site has become so widely popular, I had well over 50,000 messages clogging my email account.

    I had no choice but to delete the entire folder (how can I go through 50,000 messages) and start over with a new email system. This time it's being ported through a gmail mail server with full spam protection. Plus, I can filter through all of the spams with keywords like "GM" or "GMTruckClub" or "Hey Idiot!".

    Seriously, if you need to send an email, click the contact us button at the bottom of the page and it will send me an email. Make the subject crystal clear and reference GMTruckCLub in the title.

    For those that may have asked to be removed from the mailing list, I received two requests that I am aware of. ANYONE can ask to not get emails from the system, simply go into the User CP and change the option to receive email from the Admin.

    78 Chevy Suburban Silverado (454, 3/4 ton)
    62 GMC 3/4 ton Pickup (350 police interceptor)

    Well, the email works much better now. I can actually get emails from people that need help, like a couple of people that needed their password to be reset becuase they never got the return email from the system.

    Plus, some people don't want to get the emails I send out, so that's good too, I can shut them down (ignore admin emails) in their own User CP and then I'm not sending unwanted emails.

    Much better than 50000 emails. I don't blame you for deleting account.
