I've been shovelling drifts of keen monkeys in the direction of the venerable forum for the past month or so and yet we've have few new registrations. It came to pass that the forum couldn't send email! Oh no! But why? What could have done that!
Since our hack we've had a shiney new server in a cloud and said server was bereft of the very apparatus for the sending of electronic mail. Well, that would certainly stop any emails from going out.
I have given the server monkey a telling off.
