Stockport Walking & Outdoor Group

Problems receiving emails from the group email account?

First of all - have you paid/renewed your membership? Group emails are only sent to members.
1. Check your Spam or Junk Mail folder.
    If you have emails from the group there, highlight or open them and mark them as "Not Spam" to return them to the Inbox
2. Check your Filters - this will probably be via Options or Settings.
    Open any filters and make sure that you have not inadvertently set messages from the group to be deleted/diverted to a folder.

3. Check any Spam/Junk Mail management settings - this may be separate from the normal filters, check your Options or Settings.
    Again make sure that messages from the group have not been set to Spam/Junk Mail
4. Check Blocked Contacts - probably in Options or Settings to make sure that the group email has not been added to the list. This may be separate from the Spam/Junk Mail filters
    If so, remove the address from the Blocked List
5. Add the group email address to your Address Book/Contact List.
    This should ensure that your email recognises us as being friendly
    Then send a test message to the group email (this extra step did the trick for 2 googlemail accounts)

6. If you are using Outlook Express or Windows Mail there may be something in the settings blocking the emails. 

7. If these all fail, ask a committee member if they have any other ideas!

Finally, some email providers seem to accept the "Not Spam" instruction for a while, then take a dislike to an email address (even when saved as a contact). This seems to happen even to some legitimate emails from banks, BT, etc. The Spam filters can be a bit over-zealous sometimes!

Everyone taking part in Group activities does so at their own risk.
        • The Group will not be held responsible for any accident, injury or loss occurring as a result of any Group event or in connection with travel to such event, however caused. 
        • Members attending are reminded that outdoor activities frequently need specialist equipment (boots, waterproofs, etc) and the group does not provide these. 
        • Should you attend an event and, in the opinion of the leader, pose a risk to the safety of yourself or the group, then you will be politely turned away. (For example: being ill-equipped for the terrain and weather conditions)
        • Please contact the leader in advance if you are unsure what will be appropriate for the event. 
        • Accompanied children under 18 are welcome but please check with the walk leader beforehand to ensure that the terrain and distance are suitable.
