NOTICE:  Please note that we are experiencing a serious issue with BTINTERNET, as all our single emails to members who have a "btinternet.com" domain are being rejected by the BT mail server.  It would appear that BT have changed their security routines in some unknown way, and for no evident reason emails from "sbu.org.uk" to "btinternet.com" are being refused. We are in contact with the BT Postmaster, but have no indication as yet how long this might take to resolve.

There appears to be no problem for emails FROM btinternet.com, so if you are needing us to resend an email that you were expecting, please send us a message to the usual 'masterpoints' address, and we will reply from a different address.
