Site email problem and password reset

Please note that we currently have a problem with email, which is not being sent out from our web site. In particular, this means that forum posts will not generate alerts to the author/subscribed members, and the password reset process is broken. Unfortunately, I cannot do anything about the first of these but if you have forgotten your password and need it to be reset (I cannot tell you what your old password was – I can only reset it) then please send an email to and I shall do this for you.

The email problem has been reported to the web site hosting company who are trying to resolve it as it is something outside our control.
