|XANSYS consists of two separate but linked systems; MailMan (which handles email distribution of posts) and phpBB which provides the Forum capability. From time to time subscribers need to change their subscribed email address (new job, change of company name etc). The correct way to change the email address is as follows:
Log on to the MailMan system at [url]http://xansys.org/memberoptions.html[/url] using your currently subscribed email address (there is a password reminder button) if you scroll down.
Having logged on, enter the new email address into both the "New Address" and "again to confirm" boxes.
An email will be sent to the new email address containing a confirmation link. Click on the link and then confirm that you wish to change subscribed email address.
Then send an email to email@example.com stating the old email address, the new email address and (if known) your Forum user name. The moderators will then ensure that your Forum access is correctly associated with your new email address.
Please note that attempting to directly change you subscribed email address via the Forum will almost certainly leave you unable to log in to the Forum and cause a great deal of extra work for the moderators. Please do not attempt it.
