Emails from the fora not being received [previous title: topic reply & pm notifications not working]

Postby Madge » Mon Jul 24, 2017 12:03 pm UTC

The past week or so I've not been getting topic reply notifications or PM notifications. At least one other person is experiencing this issue.

They're not in my spam folder.

What's up?

In light of new users not being able to receive emails that are needed to sign up for the forum, I tried to use the "email topic" link on the bottom left of a forum thread to see if it was a more general email failure. I sent it to an alternate email address and asked to receive a copy to the one I signed up to the forum with. No email was received (will edit this post if one shows up).

This issue has been going for about a month now. Do any admins/etc have any idea what's happening?

Well, one of them hasn't replied to several PMs from me about something else, about a week ago, but I just assumed that they were ignoring me because I'm annoying. Which, to be fair, I am sometimes.

Maybe they're relying on emails to be notified about things, meaning they're not aware at all until they notice a lack of forum emails themselves?

I joined last month, and I haven't had the issue. Maybe if everyone quit, then made a new account? :P
