My BitcoinFX - Liberty Reserve Exchange Service is now buying and selling Bitcoins.
Although everything had been correctly running and tested prior to launch I have encountered some unforeseen technical issues.
I'm based in the UK and google mail, which I have been using as my email contact and for the web form, has recently decided to change all UK @googlemail.com addresses to @gmail.com !
What is unusual is that prior to this optional change I could use either, despite having registered as @googlemail. Due to all other gmail users, especially in the USA, using @gmail I opted for this. However, I have been unable to receive @gmail mails whilst this change has been taking place !
As far as I know I have always been in control and therefore the intended recipient of both addresses ( which are now the same account (again) ! ). So, privacy has not been affected. I have just not temporarily been receiving any mails ! I will of course raise this issue with google. Please see the attached screen shots.
I have switched to an @gmx.com address for the time being.
In the future I will be using a paid email address with SSL and a PGP Key and implementing a secure SSL web form for the exchange requests as this is the only part of my service which actually requires additional security and privacy.
Forum user laszlo has been the only Bitcoin user to make an exchange request and I apologize for the delay. The details for the exchange request were held on the server, I just had not received an email to inform me of the request. I have contacted laszlo to confirm the request and resolve this exchange asap.
