Comcast is blocking support@fluteland.com Email

Postby frugal flutist » Fri Sep 14, 2018 7:13 pm

I have been trying to register but, many different things seem to prevent or delete me.
The first problem was with Comcast/Xfinity "Comcast is the second largest Internet service provider in the nation."
Comcast has blocked Email from you. It does not get through to the server because they think you're a spam-bot server. I spent two hours on the phone with them to be told that. They said they would call me back, or I could call them in three days.

After registering using a Gmail account I found the confirmation Email in the spam folder, but I think I took to long because I got the message that the user did not exist.

I tried again on 13th with the Gmail address and it seemed like I was registered . I clicked on the link and was greeted with a thank you for registering (or something like it) message. So it seemed I had at last succeeded. Today I attempted to log on and was told there was no user with that name???
I registered again today with the same name/password. I got the Email. I got logged on. but I'm afraid that my user info will again be gone tomorrow.

One of the many frustrations I encountered was the message to contact a Board administrator. But that is not possible unless you're registered!
Today I saw a new message;
"The board administrator contact page has been disabled." I never saw a link to it before, I did look.
I also noticed the resend conformation Email button is now gone. It was not working by the way, if it was I would have found copies in the GMAIL spam folder.
Is some one working on the site? Have you recently changed hosting servers?
I think a working link to support is a good idea.

I'm sorry you've had problems getting registered. As far as I know, nothing has recently changed with the server. Regarding the board admin contact, I believe they had to disable it due to spammers flooding the board and email contacts.

So Comcast first said they would call me back in three days, they did not! I waited a week and called them. Again I got transferred to several different agents. I kept notes. I spoke to four different agents, of course I had to explain the problem four times. I gave them all my escalation number, but I still had to go through the problem. None of the agents could understand why I should care, if no one on Comcast could get email from support@fluteland.com. Since I had registered through a Gmail account. My problem was solved! This last agent told me "they were working on it" She promised they would call me the next day. (I spent more than 2 hours on that call.)

Of course no one called me. I waited 8 days and called back. Déjà vu all over again. I finally got connected to Jason who was sympathetic and seemed determined to help. I learned that a company named Cloadmark manages there Email servers and the Comcast agents don't know how to reach them. Jason puts me on hold..... I wait 45 min and get a new agent that knows nothing about my call. He tells me they will call me within 72 hours. (2.5 hours on that call!)

https://www.cloudmark.com/en


Of course no call from Comcast. I waited the three days and called back. 10/01/18
1 hour and 20 min into call I get a security agent with a heavy Asian accent he does not seem to understand what I am telling him. He tells me he is solving my problem by removing any filters to my email account from Cloudmark. I ask how that will help other Comcast/xfinity customers who wish to register on Fluteland. He tells me he can only help one customer at a time. He says he can't contact Cloudmark directly, but he will make a report about my complaint and send it up the line...

Today I tried to register with my comcast email address to see if I would get an Email from
support@fluteland.com after all, I was told all Cloadmark filters would be removed from my account.

Of course no email showed up. Yes I made sure it was not in a spam or junk folder. I would have liked to change Emaill addresses because I don't use the Gmail account for anything but this site.

It might be a good Idea for some one from fluteland to contact Cloadmark and ask them to remove you from there spam filter. They will not talk to me about your web site. I can't be the only one of comcasts 29,000,000 customers that has interest in flutes. I think most people who had the problems getting confirmation Email I had, would give up.

I had this same problem some years ago with cnczone.com. At that time I was able to solve the problem by calling comcast. I would love to quit Comcast. Comcast has a monopoly in my area. They donate millions to politicians to maintain it. So I have no choice.

Now that you are registered, you can go into your FluteLand profile and change your email address of record (if you want to).

Welcome and thanks for persevering Frugal Flutist!
I've had problems with them in the past as well

I posted a request on their website - If I hear anything I'll update

Hi Classitar,

Thank you for taking action regarding this problem.

I don't Know if all Email from fluteland is being blocked, (by cloadmark /Xfinity/comcast) or just "support@fluteland.com" Email. Mail from "jo_blow@fluteland.com" might get through, but that doesn't seem likely. That may be what pied_piper was thinking when he made his suggestion.
