It seems we currently have an issue with the site not sending out emails. This means that requests from existing site users to email reminders for forgotten passwords or for new message notifications, as well as verification emails for anyone trying to sign up for a new account are not going out.
We have flagged the problem for jase's attention and will advise once the problem has been fixed. In the meantime, apologies for any inconvenience.
Note that the internal rMails are working fine, it's just external email.
So, they are trying to fix the issue. Please be patient.
