If you have signed up and you have not yet got your email, there are several possible reasons...

If you are using Gmail, check your spam and junk folder.  Most mail from the new bar address of @banesbar.net seems to be ending up in Gmail's junk folder.

If you are using NNTP, recheck your news server address.  The new bar address is baensbar.net

Bell South and several other ISP's are using a rDNS spam filter that is currently blocking the Bar.  We are working on the issue but rDNS takes time to propagate and I hope it will be fix over the weekend...

I've also seen several Gmail bounce messages with saying the email address doesn't exist...  Check for typos, please...

As I dig through the bounce messages, I will do what I can to fix them...

Please be patient...

Reverse DNS issues are now fixed and are propagating worldwide as I write this...

This should fix most email issues...

Please retry your password resets and/or signup's!

Updated Email Issues:

As of 20:00Eastern 14APR2021

If you have an email address from:

@verizon.net or @Yahoo.com 

messages from the Bar, including registration, signup, password reset as well as message digests are either being delayed for hours or returned to the Bar as undeliverable.

This is not a Bar error, but rather your email provider refusing to accept the message.

If you have one of these emails and need a password reset, click the contact link at the bottom of the page and send me an email...

After I verify  your details, I'll send you back a tempory password that will let you in.
