Not getting email notifications..
« on: August 16, 2010, 02:32:03 PM »
I suddenly stopped getting email notifications?  I didn't change any settings in my profile and I have made sure I have "notify" clicked when posting a reply but I haven't had an email notification in weeks? 

I just posted a couple threads and I have quite a few replies but no notifications, I usually rely on the notify feature to let me know when someone replies to my post, or adds to a post i'm subscribed to.

Can anyone help me get my notifications back?  ???

Have you checked your junk mail?  Could be for some reason your ISP is blocking forum mail as well.  Swamp Donkey's notifications stopped awhile back and then mysteriously started again. The forum is sending, for some reason, you just aint getting.

I bet it is yahoo.  The forum server had been getting lambasted by kickbacks from them. I think due to a spammer forging the send on mail from webmaster@forestryforum.com  there is no such email address and never has been one, and thats the one that yahoo was kicking back at us as spam when we didnt even send them.  Could be they have blocked others as well now.

Email notifications mostly stopped for me maybe a month ago.  Sometimes a few get through but most times none at all.

My email is yahoo.  It's a disposable one that forwards email to my real email if that makes sense.

You might try changing your forum email to something other then a yahoo email and see if that works.  Make sure in your profile under account settings that your email address is hidden. (if its ticked, it's hidden, however you can still see it, the forum admins can see it, but no one else can see it or get at it)

Jeff,
Is there an email address that the yahoo mail recognizes from the forum notifications?  If so could I add that address to my contacts list?  I checked my spam folder and there is nothing in there from the forum, I think yahoo must be blocking it before it even gets to my spam folder. 
If there is no address I can add to my yahoo mail contacts then I will try setting up a gmail account and forwarding the emails through that.

Well I tried adding that email address to my contacts and still nothing.  Then yesterday I updated my email address to a different one I use sometimes, still didn't get anything from there.  I double checked that I am 'enabling notifications' and I don't see any reason I'm not getting them?  My other address is a gmail address. 

When I changed my email to my gmail address It said I needed to check the verification email, however I didn't get one on my gmail address?  Somehow I can magically login now though (probably thanks to Jeff).

Am I just doomed and I'll never get email notifications again?  Maybe it's something I said?   :D :D :D

Neither Jeff or I did anything on our ends when my notifications stopped, then mysteriously began again. Internet burp or something. ;)

Have you clicked on the "Spam" folder in gmail to verify that FF emails aren't being flagged as spam?  That happened to me once, long ago.

Also, I'm wondering why you need email notifications on every thread you have posted to?  Just stop by and hang out more often and check the threads.  Stay a while and chat more.  :)

I did check the spam folders in both yahoo and gmail but nada. 
I do like subscribing to the threads and getting the email updates, personnel preference I guess. 
If there is some kind of way to see how much I've been on the forum lately I'm sure you would all think I had nothing else to do!   :D :D

Just about a month ago, I stopped receiving e-mail notifications when I got a PM from someone on the Forum.  Interesting.  Something is going on, and my e-mail account is not yahoo or gmail.

Mine is only Bell/Aliant here, has been from the start except a yahoo account that I stopped 2 years ago with my website. But, it's always been the Bell/Aliant I use on the forum account. It goes under the old name of NBnet, which was a crown corporation called NBTel. It's (telecom. company) been sold a couple times since.

Anyway, just throwing that out there as information in case we run out of ideas to figure what's going on or not going on.  ;)
Move'n on.

I'm not getting email notifications either. My ISP is Wildblue (satellite internet). They contract with Google for email services. It does seem odd that both Google and Yahoo would pick the same time to start blocking spam.

I've checked my gmail spam folder, and there is nothing from the Forestry Forum there either. I wonder if one of the intermediate servers that the mail passes through is blocking it before it gets to google/gmail ?? I had that problem once in the past (before Wildblue started contracting with Google). Took a long time for them to figure out what was going on. In the mean time, I was not getting emails from two family members, and from anyone in my employer's domain. Nothing ever showed up in the spam folders, and the sender never got any error messages.

John,
I've tried everything recommended but still nothing.  I'm hoping it will magically start working again just as it magically stopped one day.  Not really sure what else we can do?
