Can't change email addy

I keep trying to change my email over to a new email account, but it hasn't seemed to work. It says the old account should receive an email, so I can validate it, but the old account hasn't received an email. I tried it last week, and it tried again late last week, and again today. Am I doing something wrong or is there an additional step? Thank you.

Can't change email address

My old aol email address has been turned off. I need to change my email address on my instructables account. But i need access to the old address to confirm the new address - which i don't have. Is there a way to change my email without having to confirm through my old address. I'm worried that I'm missing important info.

Oh noes! I stopped receiving email!

Last night I received a rush of emails due to my new iBle. Suddenly, they just stopped. I was no longer receiving emails from Instructables. This was confirmed by several un-emailed replies to me and one of my forum topics. I rely heavily on the email system to tell me when someone is contacting me, as the text box on my homepage does not always show new comments. If you think I stopped receiving the emails because the rush triggered an anti-junk system, I have no such system set up (because I don't get junk mail :) ) and I have received a much larger rush of iBle emails in the past. I tested to see if it was my email by sending a message from a separate computer/account, and I received that message. I also still receive emails from Geocaching.com. Please, fix this. I'm lost without it! Edit: Fixed! :D

Can't add email

I logged in through Twitter and created an instructable to enter into the leather goods contest. In order to do so, I need to have an email connected to the account, but the site does not allow me to add/change my email (Likely because there's none to begin with due to the twitter connection) I'm on win7  on 32.0.3 FF - Tried Chrome as well. Works in neither. The email I'm trying to add is hammer@martillo.dk - If someone is able to add that to my profile so I can get into the contests in the future I'd appreciate it

email duplications

Hi all, Has anyone else started getting two emails for the same item, one from the usual Instructable mail shot system and another one with Ref "Name of current mailshot" and then it goes on to say thanks for contacting Instructables, blah blah blah. This is happening to me and becoming annoying. I'm already having problems with downloading PDF files as a Pro member and now this has started. Whats going on please, considering cancelling my subscription.

Can't email 'ibles!

I surf Instructables a lot at work, during down-times (gotta love IT, when your servers are humming and users haven't managed to screw things up in awhile), and will often email my wife, myself, or friends interesting 'ibles.  The last couple of days, however, when I click on the Email button, the window pops up as usual, but after filling out all of the requisite information, clicking the "Send to Friends" button at the bottom does nothing.  Not even a hicup.  No blinky lights.  I'm using XP Pro SP3, Firefox 3.6.8 (updates were the first thing I tried).  Any thoughts about this?

Newsletter being sent to old email address

I changed my email address in my account a while ago but am still receiving instructable newsletters at the old email address. Is there a different spot in my account that I have to change the email address for newsletters? Or is this a bug?

Emails still going to old address

I changed my email address several weeks ago, but you're still sending your emails to my OLD email address, why?  I just checked my profile and my NEW email address is the only one listed. So, I do hope you'll fix this SOON, I won't be using my old email address at all, soon. Thanx

Subscription Email

I love this website and enjoy my weekly newsletter of new Instructables. Originally, I had them going to my spam-catcher email (I do that when I sign up for something new), but want it to come to my regular email now. My main account settings now has my regular email address, but the newsletter still went to the old one. Private messages and comment updates go to the new email just fine. Finally, I turned off the subscriptions to that old email address. Oops... Now I don't get the weekly at all! I tried to find where to subscribe to the newsletter and all I get is a page that is essentially for new accounts: it wants a NEW address and won't accept my current email address, saying it's already in use. Well no kidding! It's my email address and that's where I want the newsletter to go!!! So how the heck do I subscribe to the weekly newsletter using my current account settings' regular email address?

Haven't Recieved Notification Emails

Hi, I just noticed that while people I'm following have recently posted instructables, I haven't received any email notifications. I checked my settings and they still show that I want to receive notifications. I've received notifications about comments and new followers, just not about anything posted by the people I'm following. Is something wrong with my email, or is this a bug? (I checked the spam folder in my email, nothing was there) Anyone else have this problem?

email images not displaying

I'm not getting images in my Instructables newsletter emails. Almost all of them are broken except for the We're Hiring graphic. The links in the image placeholders work. But without the images I'm not inspired, so I don't bother to click and follow the link. I have no problem with any other emails from other websites. I'm using Outlook 2007 on Windows Vista. (Please don't suggest using a different email program.) I've added Instructables to my "Safe Sender" list and "Safe Domain" list. What's going on?

Hi, I know this topic has been made multiple times but none of the other solutions seems to be working.  I've tried resetting the email settings, logging out and back in, double checking my spam filter...etc.  I receive emails sporadically but did not receive the Halloween notification a few weeks ago, nor have I been receiving notifications of comments to my posts or updates from the authors I follow.  Can anyone please help?  Thank you.

Multiple copies of subscription emails

I've received four copies so far of an identical email giving me a subscription update, telling be about Lith's group. At first I thought it was a Gmail server error and it wasn't actually updating my inbox after I read and deleted them, but the timestamps are different, all a minute apart. This happened a while back, and I never saw that it was officially resolved but the problem just went away.

Must be logged in to email an Instructable to a friend

For some time, we've allowed anyone, site member or not, to email an Instructable to a friend or two simply by entering the friend's email address and clicking a couple buttons.  On Sunday, against our terms of service (see link in the footer), someone ran a script that hacked this feature to send out mass emails to a very large number of people.  And the emails looked like they came from us.  Not good!  I hate to say it, but someone used Instructables to send out spam. So, yesterday I updated the site to prevent this from happening again.  I changed it so you could only use this feature if you were logged in.  We're thinking about different ways to handle it, to still allow people who don't have an Instructables membership to share Instructables with friends, but limit it in some way to prevent anyone from sending spam again.  Once we've decided on the best long-term fix, we'll implement it and I'll post about it here.

Crazy behavior when clicking from email

I'm surprised that no one else has reported this, because it's pretty severe. Whenever I click a link from your email newsletter, the page never stops reloading. Everything works fine when I've called it up directly from instructables.com, but when I click a link or image from the newsletter, everything bounces around and it never stops. Clicking the stop ("X") in Chrome doesn't help, because then the page is only partially loaded and none of the javascript works. I'm on Chrome, up to date at current release, Windows XP at final release; email is gmail. I don't think I can provide a screen dump that captures the, um, dynamic nature of the problem--like I said, the page just never quits jumping. The first time I noticed it was within the last few weeks, not sure exactly, but at first I thought it was a fluke. Since that time, it has happened every time.

Newsletters arriving daily rather than weekly

E-mail alerts - a question for Robot.

Dear Robot,When I log onto the internet, it is my habit to first check my emails, including working down the list of comments in my daily alert from Instructables.I know you put the emails together, but what is your logic?The reason I ask is because the messages are not in chronological order, nor are they in reverse chronological order. They are in some sort of random order. For instance, there were three comments from one thread. They were made one after the other, each a reply to the one before, within a couple of minutes.Yet they arrived in my alert 2nd message, then third, then first, with other messages from other threads, posted hours apart, interspersed between them.It's not a life-threatening situation, but it is one of life's little puzzles.

Reveived three copies of a newsletter

Hi guys, I very much enjoy the regular updates of instructables through the newsletters I receive by email. However, upon receiving the same one for the third time today I was wondering if there is any major work being done behind the scenes or whether I stumbled upon a bug, and I though it would be a good idea to submit a bugreport. Hence, this topic. I have attached a small screenshot of my gmail account. (Leaving out the standard layout due to privacy and general negligability..) Of course, I would be more than happy to forward the series of messages to an address if requested. Likewise, I can give my email address when necessary in some private message. The emails all source from < newsletter@m1.instructables.com >. I run a windows7, ubuntu dual boot and browse in chrome (version 36.0.1985.125) but these stats seem to be irrelevant as the mail server does not directly interact with them :-) PS. I also came accross a java error, but did not have the presence of mind to take a screenshot of the stack trace. It was after resetting my pasword, logging in for the first time and then browsing to the forums through the main navigation from the homepage. (This probably is not detailed enough to get anywhere, but it perhaps plants a seed of intuition in the programmer that reads it which might help when someone else makes another report ^_^), In the glance I had at it, it seemed to concern reflection and the loading of the content page, which recursed once before reaching the error. (In the sence that in the content view, a complete version of the main navigation was included, yielding a somewhat smaller header identical in shape and function to the top-level one)

Puns

I got this e-mail from my mom, Enjoy. How many dogs does it take to change a light bulb? 1. Golden Retriever: The sun is shining, the day is young, we've got our whole lives ahead of us, and you're inside worrying about a stupid burned out bulb? 2. Border Collie: Just one. And then I'll replace any wiring that's not up to code. 3. Dachshund: You know I can't reach that stupid lamp! 4. Rottweiler: Make me. 5. Boxer: Who cares? I can still play with my squeaky toys in the dark. 6. Lab: Oh, me, me!!!!! Pleeeeeeeeeze let me change the light bulb! Can I? Can I? Huh? Huh? Huh? Can I? Pleeeeeeeeeze, please, please, please! 7. German Shepherd: I'll change it as soon as I've led these people from the dark, check to make sure I haven't missed any, and make just one more perimeter patrol to see that no one has tried to take advantage of the situation 8. Jack Russell Terrier: I'll just pop it in while I'm bouncing off the walls and furniture. 9. Old English Sheep Dog: Light bulb? I'm sorry, but I don't see a light bulb! 10. Cocker Spaniel: Why change it? I can still pee on the carpet in the dark. 11. Chihuahua : Yo quiero Taco Bulb. Or "We don't need no stinking light bulb." 12. Greyhound: It isn't moving. Who cares? 13. Australian Shepherd: First, I'll put all the light bulbs in a little circle... 14. Poodle: I'll just blow in the Border Collie's ear and he'll do it. By the time he finishes rewiring the house, my nails will be dry. How many cats does it take to change a light bulb? Cats do not change light bulbs. People change light bulbs. So, the real question is: "How long will it be before I can expect some light, some dinner, and a massage?" ALL OF WHICH PROVES, ONCE AGAIN, THAT WHILE DOGS HAVE MASTERS, CATS HAVE STAFF! It had pictures, but I can't figure out how to get them off my e-mail. If anyone knows how tell me please, and i'll repost with pictures.
