Recently in this thread we've been discussing the topic of e-mail notifications. For the past couple of days I have not been receiving e-mail notifications for mentions and likes. I have not had any PMs to test. Everything had been fine for a couple of months. I have checked my spam folder in Webmail. Anyone else having problems?
Edit - last e-mail notification for me was February 8th. @OLDYELLR sent me a test PM and I didn't get an e-mail notification for that either.
@57 As far as I know, I have always received Forum notifications. For a period of several months, the Outlook server had been tossing them into Junk despite my marking those messages as coming from a safe sender. I opened a trouble ticket with Support and marked every Forum notification as "Not junk". It took a while but notifications are now landing and remaining in my Inbox again, and have been for the past several weeks.
Might be email provider based some people are getting all of them, some are getting some, and some are getting none.
I have yet to have any issues at all receiving my emails via both GMail, and GSuite (Google Workspaces, whatever) besides a small hiccup back when this issue was reported. Ever since then I've been receiving the emails fine, including for all the posts in this thread.
I just checked and found a few notification emails (just a few, not all) in my Junk folder again. It could be that some unhappy users are flagging notification emails as spam which could cause some email providers (and not others) to block those messages, depending on how they calculate reputation scores for either the sender or the domain.
@CommunityHelps : Is it possible for you to check to see if your e-mails are being blocked as spam again, like they probably were a few months ago?
I tried changing my e-mail address to my gmail, but that didn't come through either.... Although, in order to change the e-mail address I did have to go through a verification process and I did get that e-mail on gmail. However, that came from the following address which has a "via" modifier.
When I clicked on the "via" I was taken to the following information page:
So, today I received an e-mail notification regarding a PM. Comments follow:
1. The e-mail was sent Tue, 16 Feb 2021 23:28:31 +0000 (GMT)
2. The e-mail was received Wed, 17 Feb 2021 16:31:32 +0000, 17 hours later...
3. The e-mail was sent to my Rogers e-mail address. I guess my switch to my gmail e-mail address didn't "take", even though I sent a verification. That's fine, since that was only for testing purposes anyway.
I'll post back in a few days if I start getting other e-mail notifications properly. I'll include a mention to @57 as a test.
