Ugh, still out.:mad:

This is the longest I've been without access since I joined FM a few years ago. Maybe this is an argument against depending on using aliases (or those masked addresses) and...

I don't have my own domain (I've always used a forwarding service) so I guess that's why I favor the subdomain method. Plus I like being able to use FM's fuzzy folder matching for auto-filtering...

The first thing that comes to mind is maybe to create a filter rule for "all messages".

Just tried it. Yes, they do disappear but unfortunately the verification requirement doesn't. The identity list tags the identity as "unverified" along with the verify button. Trying to compose...

I have one of those too. It's for a alias identity of the form, for example *@mm.st. It's only an alias but it still asking to verify even though it is, as you say, "nonsensical" (at least for an...
