Subscibed topic no longer emails me when there are new posts

Postby mikef » Wed Jan 16, 2013 6:06 pm

Howdy,
I am subscribed to viewtopic.php?f=10&t=88005 but the forum no longer emails me when there are new posts. Please advise.

Hi,

Did you change anything in the settings? Re: E-mail notifications not working?

Probably not, but I wanted to check.

If you are subscribed to a topic and then delete your email notification (maybe accidently) without looking at the topic, the forum software thinks you have not seen the topic yet and won't notify you again. I think. Could something like that have happened?

Howdy and thank you. I have all the correct settings. Is there an IP or email address I can add to my whitelists that might help solve things?

Thank you.

Howdy and thank you. I understand what you are writing. I dont think I am doing that. I think it may be more likely it is getting caught up in a spam filter or email server.

Thank you.

In the User Control Panel --> Edit global settings --> Notify me on new private messages: Set to Yes

This will send an email whenever you get a PM. Then, send yourself a PM and be sure you get an email. If you don't, then the problem is with your email filter.
