The new buddy message system is working great for most folks but there are a few folks having problems opening the messages. The main issue is when we have data attachments, for example from Mark Keaton. The complaint has been it's slow to load or it just will not open. Ed our web master has two options that should help.
1. Anyone that is having problems opening them might have problems beyond our email system, which means your browser settings. If your settings are set to not trust our emails (like Outlook Express will do automatically) then the pictures will not load until they accept them or allow them to be downloaded, or flag us a “trusted sender”. Look at your browser settings and make sure they will accept our emails.
2. You don't have to download the message to read it. You may simply view it on your browser. All you have to do is find the link at the top right corner of the buddy message “View email in my browser” which will allow you simply view it online. Click on this to read the emails. This will solve the slow downloading issue.
If you are still having problems, contact me.
Thanks for your patience as we get this new system up and running.
