Not receiving emails for replies to threads
« on: February 10, 2008, 19:37:47 »
Today, Sunday, there have been a number of replies to threads I'm subscribed to and I haven't received an email notifying me of them.  There were also cases yesterday when PMs arrived but either I was notified of them some time later or wasn't notified of them at all.

Has anyone else had similar problems?

I use btinternet as an ISP.

I'm happy that you mentioned this, Gordon ... I've also had the same problem over the last couple of days. Let's hope that it's just a temporary nuisance.

All the best,
Richard

Yes, I'm having the same problem too. :(

I'm also supposed to receive a notification when a new member joins. This evening I noticed there was a new account, created last night, for which I didn't receive an e-mail. Hate it when that happens. I thought it might be my own ISP failing to forward the message, but it sounds like it's a problem with the webhost.

The server was down yesterday which left the forum offline for several hours, so I'm thinking this problem could be related.

With a bit of luck it will all come right again in a relatively short period of time. :crossed:
If not, I will contact Dreamhost's support team and find out what's going on.

Thank you, Sylvia and Richard.  It's good to know I'm not alone!

It seems to be picking up again...

My in-box was full of notifications this morning. :)

Me too ... but, they're mostly all a day or more late ... So, I just deleted them all. Now I'm just "sifting through" the old fashioned way. Which means looking at everything on the site .. ;)
