If anyone here has programming skills and wants to put in the time and effort to go through the old plugin and make it work with the newer software though, I'm happy to let them do it.

Shit, this forum needs to survive.We, the members, can help with donations for a few months until the situation gets even.

They've done studies you know...60% of the time, it works every time

I appreciate the sentiment, but I'll not ask members to contribute, and don't mind coming out of pocket a little each month to keep the forum up and running. I just don't want to have to spend an extra several hundred dollars to pay for something that isn't an absolute necessity.

On a plus note, the email issue is now fixed, and I was able to fix it all by myself. Smile

The new firewall for some stupid reason was set to block incoming and outgoing traffic to Port 465, which is the Port used for sending encrypted email.

I guess I can have my programmer take a look at the Thanks plugin to see if he can quickly figure out how to make it work with the new software, but I'm not making any promises.

Appreciate it if you could have him look into it, or come up with an updated plugin for it. I also forgot to say, that it also serves (for me at least) as sort of a bookmark to know which threads I've read already. FoolSearchAcute
