      Ahh...

      The SMTP only sends mail, not delivers it, so if someone using our SMTP emails you, then you bounce that, I don't think it would make any difference tbh

      What happened the other day, was that there are honey pots (specific email address's which monitor spam) and some of the spammed emails ended up in them, triggering off a spam report to our server hosts.

      It wont become a problem unless you bounce hundreds per day through our server so don't worry

      Sounds like a grumpy reply ?

      I actually applied and then didn't take up the service,it had nothing to do with not reading or following instructions

      I have just checked the backup of user names and yours is not listed, so it has never been set up.

      Just so you know, without your forum username or a requested password on the application, we would normally just delete the request.

      It would appear that one of two things have happened here, either we never ever got your original application with the username and password, or that it never had the username and a password. Nothing grumpy about it though.

      If you send it through we can sort it out for you.
