    Turn played and sent to pbem.FractalRock@gmail.com. The tracker was updated. But with Psza, my predecessor, the tracker is not working properly. Psza sent the turn to pbem.FractalRock@gmail.com and I received the e-mail with the save. But the tracker was not updated with my name.

    The tracker has a different email address for Psza (hotmail) and so it skips his email as something that didn't come from one of the 'players'. I will update his email to the gmail version.

    625 BC to Ruff Hi via tracker email, but the tracker page says it's still with me.

    I looked at that. Apparently gmail was concerned that you had not sent that email and had flagged it as 'suspect'. Part of the tracker code ignores suspect email.

    Sorry for causing havoc chaps.

    Right got it: I'm using my Gmail account, not my hotmail account.

    I send the turn from in-game, and hence the email comes from my ISP's SMTP server. That may be why.

    Really? I always thought that functionality was borked. I have a distinct memory of posts that says the password that Civ4 passes the ISP is '******' (ie masked) - and the ISP gets the password as a bunch of asterix. So, unless you aren't very security conscious (ie your password really is '******') then it won't work.

    I leave the password field blank. I just fill in my gmail address and the ISP's SMTP address.
