Are you receiving email notifications from forum?
« on: March 12, 2017, 03:16:16 AM »
Folks,

I have noted that there may be an issue with some members not receiving emails from the forum (e.g. when they receive a new PM).  Would you all please advise if you are also experiencing this issue or just as equally are not having problems and are still getting emails.

To help assess the issue, I have placed this poll here.  Please advise if:

Yes - you are receiving emails when new PMs etc turn up
No - you are not receiving said emails
Sometimes - you get emails for some things but not others.

Kind regards,

Greg

To whomever said yes, when was the last time you received an email originating from the forum?

I have notifications turned off ATM so I wouldn't know. I'll turn some on and let you know the result.

EDIT - one thing I do have notifications switched on for is PMs, and I've just noticed that the last PM notification I've had was in July 2016, but I know for a fact that I've had three PMs in 2017 alone.

I answered 'sometimes' Greg, that is because the time or two you put out a general announcement I'll receive an email about it, but if other members send me a PM, I don't get an email and only find out about it when I come in on the forum.

I think I have the email notification switched on, at least I did have it switched on sometime ago.

Okay, I should have received an e-mail notification when Kitnut617 replied to this thread, but I didn't, so I've now voted 'No'.

Since years ago, I was receiving Emails whenever there is an answer to a topic I have started or in which I have replied, but now: no more, zero. This good way in the past stopped a few months ago, but I could not say precisely if it was 3 months ago or 9 months ago...

Nope, I signed up twice over a week ago and expected a verification link which never came.

Someone from the site emailed me yesterday telling me I was approved and it has all been taken care of.

Thought it might have been, didn't want to assume!

Just as well you did too!

Hallo, I found this discussion looking for a solution to the same problem I am experiencing... I do not receive email notifications from the forum since probably September 2016...

I had a message sitting in my inbox for almost a week with no notification. I usually check out the sight on my phone and didn't even realize I had gotten it. :(

Just a friendly reminder to our members that have eMail addresses that have an eMail address in their member profile that is not valid or no longer accessible to them.  Please update your profile to include an eMail address that you actually use. 

I bring this up due to a recent interaction with a member to which I sent an eMail with an attached image and it turns out the member was unable to access that eMail address due to reasons beyond their control.  It would also mean that any messages sent to that eMail address such as notifications would not be received so please ensure that your eMail address is actually working and not just a space filler.

Just found out I had two messages when I looked here, no emailed notification received.

At least the rest of you know this bug isn't playing favorites.

Off to read them now.

Hallo mates, is there anything that could be done on this issue?

I find really annoying not receiving any notification of new posts on the forum in the threads I have posted and / or replied or subscribed...

it is a way to keep visiting more often, and it's a pity this does not work!

Thanks

Antonio

Not yet I'm afraid.  We did try to implement some corrections with the last major forum update (earlier this year).  Frustratingly, this resulted in major problems to the forum and we had to partially reverse things.

I am looking at changing the host service right now to see if that can help (amongst other things).  Any suggestions on this front are welcomed.  PM me if you need to.

As my mail was not working anymore (with anyone sending after January 13th) I changed for another mail address. And I informed here, hoping the new one will receive better the notifications that had disappeared from here about one year ago. The answer is no, not better, and even worse: the activation mail was not received either, our moderator had to ask me (to confirm) by PM here.
The problem seems general with e-mail handling here. Alas.
I hope this does not prevent new members to join... ???
