You need to insert the @ symbol, sorry - I try not to post email addresses verbatim because bots can pick these up and the result is lots of spam!

If you are receiving the notifications, that's good. But let's try the ruse I proposed and see if it improves things.

Re: Is your registered email address up to date?

Ummm. Found an email from Ian in my junk folder from 25th July titled "Olympus UK E-System User Group site changes" even though I have had no trouble with such emails in the past.

It took me ages to work out how to change the microsoft server side outlook junk settings as it appears you can't do it from the default windows 8.1 email app (stupid fullscreen thing that deserves to be shot) but have to log into a browser based email client from the windows account login page and go to the option page.

As it turns out there are only 2 junk settings and I was on the least cautious so I had to add Ian to the list of approved email senders. Further reading of the junk option shows that if someone (anyone!) marks an email as junk then microsoft can use this information on a global basis to mark all emails from that user to any person/destination as junk to avoid other users seeing what some people class a junk.

Re: Is your registered email address up to date?

Until I updated the forum version (or maybe because, I don't 100% know) there was a setting in the email setup that reduced the credibility score of emails generated by the forum. By correcting that setting it's likely that more people started receiving emails for the first time (in maybe a long time) but some of these ended up in the spam folder. But as I am hearing, the situation has improved as the email servers work out that our emails aren't really spam.

Visiting friends in the Vendée. Taking the overnight ferry from Newhaven to Dieppe and taking a leisurely drive south. Probably going to look at the old town in Rouen.

If anyone has any other suggestion on along this route (Dieppe to the area around Fontenay le-Comte) I'm all ears We've been there many times but always interested in finding new things to see.

Re: Is your registered email address up to date?

Sorry Ian. I've only just realised my email is long obsolete, but I have changed that now, and although not very active at the moment, having changed to Panasonic, I may go back to Olympus if the EM 1 MK2 drops in price. So please could you put me on the list of members
Many thanks

Le Mans - old town is very pretty inside the fairly ugly city. You can park right near the cathedral under a cinema and arts centre and walk up.
There are several beef restaurants - great if you're not with someone who won't eat red meat
The museum at the race track is also great - if you like fast and vintage cars.

If you're taking a Western route from Le Mans then ZooParc Beauval is real treat - Pandas!
Chateau Chaumont was lovely too.

Past where you're headed we loved a lunchtime meal and a wander around a very pretty medieval town called Saint-Jean-d'Angély.
And we had an overnight in Cognac staying at the Cheval Blanc (The White Horse) and enjoying a tour of the Ortard distillery - don't drive!

As this is a photography forum - here's some pictures - though we carried on through Bordeaux and to Pamplona....

Re: Is your registered email address up to date?

We passed through la Vendée on a cycling trip a while ago, including Fontenay le Comte and St. Jean d'Angély, and I thought the whole area was lovely. Once you're there, La Venise Verte is magical. If your friends live there, they no doubt know this already.

Re: Is your registered email address up to date?

Here we are, La Venise Verte in 2000.

Genuine Oly content (OM 4Ti with 35-70mm f/3.6 if memory serves), Fuji colour neg and given the "lith" treatment in Photoshop:



I originally took it because I was stunned by how green everything was there (there is a clue in the name), but for some reason it didn't work in colour. B&W was better, and then playing with I thought this treatment brought it to life.
