Email confusion for riscos.org.uk domains

By Chris Williams. Published: 17th May 08:19:28 | Permalink | Printable

riscos.org.uk is a service provided by Michael Stubbs allowing RISC OS software writers and user groups to have RISC OS domain names like icq.riscos.org.uk. These are often more memorable than ISP provided addresses and should allow users to find the software they need.

Last night, drobe.co.uk receieved this little note from Michael and is published below for your information.

"Would Webmasters who are using a .riscos.org.uk address please note that unless I have specifically confirmed so, you do not get an email address in the form of yourname@riscos.org.uk

This is because the number of email addresses is currently limited whereas the number of domains is not.

The Webmaster at drawscript.riscos.org.uk should contact me at mail@riscos.org.uk straight away as on the site the email address is not valid and I am getting the email! Maybe I said an email address would be given and forgot, so I apologise if it's my fault.

Anyone who is not sure whether they have a .riscos.org.uk email address should drop me a line to confirm."
