Minelab has sent me a couple of emails to 'join the team' and I have attempted to sign in but the Wooly marketing website requires a twitter, facebook or instagram account.
I don't have these and no one responds. What is this 'team' all about?
So I've decided I want a 24k, I thought I'd contact Whites directly to see what my options are seeing there are no Whites dealers in NZ and to ask if they've considered having a dealer here. I'm thinking my best option might be to wait until these virus problems are over so shipping resumes and try and order one from Australia and just suffer with the taxes and duties it will get being imported in that way.
I first sent them an email from my Microsoft Outlook.com email address and got this
CO1NAM03FT026.mail.protection.outlook.com rejected your message to the following email addresses:
Your message was rejected by the recipient's domain because the recipient's email address isn't listed in the domain's directory. It might be misspelled or it might not exist. Try to fix the problem by doing one or more of the following:
Send the message again - delete and retype the address before resending. If your email program automatically suggests an address to use, don't select it - type the complete email address.
Clear the recipient Auto-Complete List in your email program by following the steps in this article. Then resend the message.
For Email Administrators
Directory based edge blocking is enabled for the recipient's organization and the recipient wasn't found in their directory. If the sender is using the correct address but continues to experience the problem, contact the recipient's email admin and tell them about the problem. To fix this they should resynchronize their on-premises and cloud directories.
CO1NAM03FT026.mail.protection.outlook.com gave this error:
Recipient address rejected: Access denied. AS(201806281) [CO1NAM03FT026.eop-NAM03.prod.protection.outlook.com]
So I then tried from Gmail, just in case it's some weird glitch with outlook, surely Whites monitor their only sales email address at firstname.lastname@example.org, the very email address they conduct their sales from off their website. The response from Gmail was similar....
Now I understand the folks at Whites aren't too Internet savvy, that's evident by their dated website but surely they would notice if their sales email isn't working by no emails coming into it, or do they just not get any sales queries so they haven't even noticed it not working? It appears their email@example.com email address doesn't even exist.
