I have not been receiving email notifications for threads I have posted on and for pm's sent to me.  This has been going on for over 3 months. 

The receive email notification link is turned on in my settings. Any ideas? Thanks.

Complain to Comcast. Sometime back we had an exploit that turned the server into a spam relay. I quickly found the problem, patched the security problem and have not had any problems since. Comcast put a block on us for that and I tried to have it removed more than once with no luck. I guess they block my contacts to them as well because my email originates from the Forestry Forum server.

I'll see if I can go a different route about contacting them and see if we can get it straightened out.

I followed up on this today and found an alternative way to contact Comcast about this issue. I'm hoping that it will be resolved in the near future.  Please let me know if you begin to receive your notices?  Thanks!

I have not been getting notifications at my new gmail address (which has been entered in my profile). Strange, because my old ISP contracted with gmail for their email. Even though it did not have a gmail domain name, the interface was the same.

The notifications are not showing up in gmails spam folder either...

I've added "noreply@forestryforum.com" to my contacts list for that gmail account awhile ago, which is supposed to prevent it from getting tagged as spam. Is there something else I should do?

I left one topic unread last night, just to see if I'll eventually get a notification ("Firewood Bags" last posted at 8:52 PM Oct 30). Is there anything else I should check on my end?

John, I am going to send you an email from my phone, which is a forestryforum email. I'm at the cabin, so I will use that email. It is sent via the forestryforum servers, so if you get it, that should narrow the possibilities.  Just reply back if you do so I know, or report here if you dont.

You may also try adding admins@forestryforum.com to your white list.

received and responded to email from phone.

Added Admins address to my contact list. However, I think that will only help with notifications that are getting diverted to the gmail spam box, correct? I'm not seeing notifications in there either.

Thanks for the help, and the great site!

Maybe I just need to stay off for a couple of days and see what happens?

I think I found your problem in your forum settings.  You have selected to be notified if the thread was moderated, not replied to.

I was wondering about this myself as I haven't been getting any notifications. To my knowledge nothing has changed or at least I haven't made any.

Your problem would be different. You use your biz email under your domain, so you should be able to find on your server why you are not getting the mail. It must be being blocked on your server.
