  • Question:

    I registered but now I'm having problems with login.

    UP

    Answer:

    It’s either your email address or your password that is the problem.

    Email: Did you change your email address since you last registered? We occasionally send out email updates to our community. If your email bounced back to us and we couldn't reach you to fix it, we had to delete you from our database. Please re-register. Visit often, make sure your profile has current information and this won't happen again. The email you used to register is your username - even if it no longer is a functioning email address. HOWEVER if we send you email to that old address it won't reach you. You need to edit your profile so that 1.) you can receive our emailings 2.) so that your classmates can contact you 3.) so that you can remain registered in The Waltrip Alumni Association.

    Password: The Waltrip Alumni Association system is so secure, even our webmaster cannot see your password. So if you forgot it, you will need to reset it by clicking the “Forgot password” button in the login box located on the lower left corner of all Waltrip Alumni Association pages. You will be emailed a new one. Just remember this will only work if we have a valid email address for you in our database. If not, you must re-register.

     

Question:

I sent an email to the Webmaster. Why am I not getting a reply?

Up

Answer:

Do you have a spam folder? If yes, please check it. Your reply might be in there.
Do you have a spam filter?
If yes, you need to add the Webmaster's email address <webmaster@waltripalumni.org> to your address book or we can't send replies to you. We would get back lots of rejected email.
