Please do not confuse access to official CPCUG webmail with website registration (to post comments and ask questions here).
- The former occurs using the white text on blue menu item, labeled "WebMail" on the right side of the blue menu bar. Only officers and certain directors of CPCUG have official CPCUG email boxes. Prior users may arrange forwarding but no longer have mailboxes online.
- The "Login" (blue text on white in the upper right corner), only works for website access, not email, and then only if you have been authenticated following asking to be registered. You ask for registration by entering a valid email address and a selecting a password by clicking on the "Sign Up" link, blue text on white, in the upper right corner of most page. Sadly, email addresses from yahoo.com produce so much spam that they are no longer being accepted.
- Substantial detail about this and related matter appear under the "FAQ & Forums" link on the main menu.
The old CPCUG website is no longer operational. If you must, you can use www.archive.org's "Wayback Machine" to view its very stale content. Because of this change of address, a few links on this new site may prove to be broken, and we'll fix them as time permits. This is still a volunteer activity of CPCUG. Our email service changed last August; those who use the official mailboxes @cpcug.org should click here for the changes to those email services. All the address revisions are effective, so if you still have questions after checking our FAQ, contact us.
Generally if you have questions about CPCUG don't email or phone us until you've looked at the website and read our FAQ. You'll find various information updates in our Developments and News rolls, to the left, and to the Blogs, accessible by the menu above. If you know which Special Interest Group you want to explore, use the drop down menu below the main menu SIG entry.
Support CPCUG With Your Online Purchases
Thanks to Nan Blissett, CPCUG has an online "store" associated with the Amazon.com mega-shopping Web site. If you haven't visited Amazon lately, or haven't ventured beyond its huge book selection, you may be surprised that it's become an entire shopping mall offering electronics, apparel, baby items, beauty products, gourmet food, sports and outdoors items, and a wealth of other categories. As an approved Amazon Associate, CPCUG earns from 4 to 10 percent on Amazon purchases referred from the CPCUG.ORG Web site. The higher our referrals, the greater our earnings will be. So when purchasing from Amazon—think CPCUG.ORG! This helps fund CPCUG's revitalization and supports our community service activities (free meetings, science fair judging and prizes, computer recycling, etc.)
Shopping with CPCUG is easy and costs no extra time or money. Instead of going straight to the Amazon.com Web site, simply go to CPCUG's Amazon Shops and select the category in which you're interested. Once you're on the Amazon Web site, purchases you make in all categories during that visit will be credited to CPCUG.
