What is the bias that FR (and some others) have against sending email to addresses at @Reagan.com. ? My current email no longer exists and went out of business almost 8 years ago but FR refuses to budge on a current and viable email address.

Don’t worry about it. I may be wrong, but I don’t think Jim has ever sent out an email alert.

Why don’t you be more specific. Are you trying to say that you are trying to change your email address on this site?

You really need to be more precise. As you can tell from the comments, we don't have a clue what you're talking about.

There is no bias, the fact is that all your info has been hacked and has been used to finance the purchase of office buildings, upscale condos and a slightly-wrecked-up Italian luxury liner.

That's only so far this evening.

No Life-lock you, eh?

So far, no one seems to understand exactly what you are saying. Is it that you have one of the complimentary e-mail addresses that Free Republic supplies to donors, but when you try to send an e-mail to someone with a Reagan.com address, it won't go through?

My current email no longer exists and went out of business almost 8 years ago...

If they went out of business almost 8 years ago, I don't think they could really be described as "current". Just out of curiosity, who was that e-mail provider?

I don’t use it here, but I have a Reagan.com address myself. I use it for all my right-thinking friends.

I’m sorry. The mail server John was using to supply freerepublic.com email addresses crashed and burned. So far, he’s been reluctant to install a new one. Don’t know at this time whether or not he’s going to reinstate the service.

As far as I know, there are no restrictions on registering to FR using reagan.com email addreses.

Maybe you should talk your son into installing another email server and allow people to subscribe and pay monthly for a freerepublic.com email address might turn a donation to the cause into a tax deductible business expense for some of us and ease the fundraising pressure a tad.

I get one every quarter when I donate. What’s up with you?

"allow people to subscribe and pay monthly for a freerepublic.com email address"

I'll second that.

No. I switched to Yahoo for awhile then migrated to Gmail. Now my important stuff is Reagan.com and I was hoping that I would have FreeRepublic.com could be my backup so that I could completely drop Gmail and the junk mail that Gmail seems to accumulate.

There is a filter for email service and I think it Net Alliance that filters the junk emails.

Jim,
Sorry about the server. When I signed up for monthly donations it made the offer then “nothing” so I was just curious.
I have had trouble with people recognizing Reagan.com but you might recommend that as an alternative as they do not collect your information and send statistics to companies like all the others do.
It is run by Ron Reagan.
