Different Email Address Names from different Forums RRS feed

  • Question

  • The forums use inconsistent from address Names for alerting.  For Example:

    SQL Server Forums are :
    Windows Live Alerts from MSDN Forums [forumsup[nospam-crawlers]]
    Bugs Forums are : 
    Windows Live Alerts from Microsoft Community Forums [forumsup[nospam-crawlers]]

    I haven't tried other forums yet, but is this inconsistency intentional?

  • Hi Jonathan-

    This alerts are based upon the default brand the forums are set up in.  Bug reporting defaults to Microsoft Community Forums because it is associated to the Microsoft brand.  The SQL Server forums default to MSDN Forums because it is set up as a default under MSDN.
