Email broken

As many of you have noticed, email from Freesound is currently not working. This means that it is not possible to register, and that emails related with the forum, comments and private messages are not being sent.

The problem is that the way we like Freesound to work we have to send many emails. Sending large amounts of email is no simple thing, it may overload servers, and it may bear confusions, such as our email being reported as spam and our domain blacklisted. We use an external provider for sending email, and at the moment our server has been banned from sending more messages. We are working with them in order to clarify and resolve the situation. Hopefully we’ll be back in business soon!

    In the last week, I have received several “phantom” emails,

    from a domain that calls itself “null’. The email simply says

    “null@hotmail.com”. No header, no sender, no message.

    I don’t know what this means, maybe you know.

    When do you think that the emails will be sent? I really need to register in order to download an audio track in the next 36 hours – it’s for a project. Thank you, and I am so excited to explore your site when I am able to create my account! :)

  7. If that’s the case, can you enable guest downloads, until after it has been remedied?
    I need sound for a project…
    And you guys are awesome, just saying.

    Like it was said before, can there be guest downloads for the time being?

  12. Mark says:

    If there’s any chance I can be activated that’d be great, found some perfect sounds for my uni project.

    Free Sound did not Activate at least one other time in recent years. There were some angry, vicious, unprovoked messages about lack of money and seeking money from the public online from Free Sound. The contributors would do better to find another website for public use of their awesome audio files.
