AOL, Yahoo, and Microsoft Emails Are Blocking SFI.org

If you are using an AOL.com, Yahoo.com, or Microsoft-based email addresses (eg: Hotmail, Outlook.com, MSN.com, etc) to communicate with anyone in SFI (most notably the Helpdesk) you will never receive our replies. Both AOL and Microsoft are actively blocking all emails with SFI.org in the sender's address or even in the body of the message.  All other email providers don't appear to be blocking at this time, we will update this message with additional information if that changes.

Until such time as SFI can convince both companies to release their block, we recommend switching to an email service that does not use AOL, Yahoo, or Microsoft-based services.

 A new CO and/or XO has just been elected; how do we make that change in the database?


There are two ways that you can make this change.

  1. Log into the SFI Members Database and, under the “Chapter” section, you will find the “Change of Command” tool. You will need the Passwords of both the new and old CO and/or XO you are changing.
  2. Submit a chapter change request using the “Change of Command” form. This form is available from the SFI document center by going to www.sfi.org, clicking on the “Documents” tab of the main navigation bar, and selecting “Chapter Resources.”
