Anyone having trouble getting email from their Twine might want to read this.
After a fair bit of experimenting, I believe if you are sending email to an iPhone @me
.com or @icloud
.com, Apple does not like the portion of the "From:" field, which will look like this, with each * a hexadecimal digit, the total Twine ID. There appears to be no way to add @supermechanical
.net to a "friendly" domain list, so essentially it will have to be up to Supermechanical to persuade Apple to not filter out their Twine messages. I have been in touch with John Kestner about this.
With my other email provider, @symatico
.ca (also @bell
.net), in Canada, I was able to add @supermechanical
.net to a "friendlies" list, but you have to do that using the Sympatico/Bell web interface to Hotmail, which is the actual platform beneath Sympatio/Bell. Once you do that, your Twine email will be downloaded to your phone, tablet, or computer.
One other wrinkle; if you use Outlook on your desktop, it may decide that Twine email is spam, and sort it to your Junk E-mail folder, so you need to keep an eye on that. Further, if you run McAfee Anti-Spam on your desktop, it occasional also sees Twine email as spam, and sorts it to the McAfee Anti-Spam folder. Unfortunately, neither Outlook nor McAfee seem to have a "friendlies" list.
Sigh! This was supposed to make life easier.
