I noticed that the board has been behaving strangely this evening and after submitting a post it gives the message that a mail limit has been reached.

"Echec ! Errors :
You've reached your maximum daily quota : 150
Mail Error!

Could not send the email
Failed at 'mail' command"

Upon hitting the back button and re-submitting the post I have found that the original post has already been posted and the second attempt has ended up causing a duplicate or double post.

If anyone else has noticed this happening I'd like to know and have found that hitting the back button and returning to the main index without re-submitting is the best option to prevent double posting.

I am hoping it's a temporary glitch and if anyone would like double posts to be deleted simply edit your double post to include a "please delete" message so we Admin types can clean things up.

I got the same message when I tried to send a PM through FPN and an e-mail to someone, via FPN :(

Keith,

I noticed exactly the same thing last night.

I thought it was a problem with my computer, as I have had to recover from a major crash recently, but the symptoms were exactly as you described. And Maja, it was with posting to the board, not a PM or email, so it must have affected all modes of communications. Was a funny message to get when posting....

I don't remember where the duplicate message is, but I'll look it up and edit this message to point to it so it can be removed. I did edit it myself to provide a partial fix.

Gerry


Duplicate post is at: http://pagesperso.la...topic=127&st=15

The problem seems to have been resolved and I went and cleaned up that extra post.

Gonna head over to the lounge for coffee now...

Cheers!

I know, Gerry....I thought the FPN computer was trying to tell me that I was sending too many PM's lately! :lol:

Not quite relevant but just so that you are aware, when I registered last night the promised registration validation email did not arrive. As you can see, I'm registered anyway...

Just bought my first ever vintage pen from Epray so I'll do a few pics when it arrives and see what you all think,

Looking forward to it. Welcome to the board. I should understand more about the registration stuff - but don't. :)

Epray (as in "I pray that my pen will finally arrive in the mail...")
or Eprey (as in preying on innocent bidders)? :lol:
