Checking Email Validity



If you get an email with the subject: "Checking Email Validity", it's just me checking all the email addresses listed on the site. I've just done A and B today as I don't want to be tagged a spammer. You don't need to reply as I'll know within a few minutes and get a user unknown bounce from the server if it's invalid and then I'll remove it from the listings. Just breaking back in gently with something I've wanted to do for ages.

Re: Checking Email Validity

I found 7/53 invalid email addresses in A and B.

Just done C and D and already got 8/58, there may be more over the next 24 hours.

Re: Checking Email Validity

Hi Steve! Re Bob Frost. He is still very much alive and kicking, and living in Hobart.

He was ex Orient Line/P&O Orient Line in the Pursers Office, but not sure what his final rank was.

The other names are not known to me. Cheers, David.

Re: Checking Email Validity

Sailed with Linda on the Oriana. Great fun. But do not know where she is now.

Re: Checking Email Validity

I have Linda's contact details and will send to Steve. Presently rolling around in a Force 9 gale in Biscay aboard ORIANA and don't have details to hand. Also want to get back to the bar.

Re: Checking Email Validity

Hi David, that's the address I had which now bounces.

Re: Checking Email Validity

Hi Steve! At least we know he is alive and kicking! Will try another source1

Re: Checking Email Validity

Hi Steve! Re Malcolm Rushan. In the previous I spelt i his surname with an e instead of an a. He does have another email address although apparently the other one should get through with the correct spelling!

His alternative address is malcolmrushan@gmail.com

Cheers, David.

Re: Checking Email Validity

Rushan with an a still bounces and sadly I can't add a different address without the person's permission.

There's only two in the N-O section:

Neil Sharp
Norman Geehan

Re: Checking Email Validity

Steve

You were the one who found Norm Geehan's Email address for me years ago. We swapped Emails for a short while, then my Emails to him started bouncing. I don't know what happened to him.

Where are you from: Bilgola - Sydney Northern Beaches

Re: Checking Email Validity

Hi Greg, it could be something's happened to him and all these other people or they may just wanted to go and hide under a rock for a while (I know all about that feeling). I should point out that some of the people who's email addresses have become invalid and have been removed I actually know their current email address from more recent emails they've sent to me but I can't automatically update people's email addresses on a public website without their express permission.

The addresses removed from the P-R section are as follows:

Paul Robinson
Pauline Milner
Peter Anderson
Peter Kennington
Philip Durell
Ray Conway
Ray Pearson
Rick Thompson
Robert Jones
Roger Lownsborough
Roger Villiers
Roy Arnold

Re: Checking Email Validity

Finally the email checking is done and the last two names to be removed (from the S-Z section) are:

Steve Hodge
Stuart Woosnam

Re: Checking Email Validity

Well Done Steve, If ever there was a labour of love you have defined it.

Where are you from: Gosport originally now Campbelltown N.S.W
