    Resolved [RESOLVED] Problem with email

    Hi,

    Is there any likely reason that I didn't receive an email informing me that I had a reply to my last new thread? I had two replies but no emails.

    Moved to Forum Feedback. It kinda acts as a forum bug reporting area and the admins check it regularly.

    Are you getting other emails from here? And or have you gotten some since you created the thread?

    "IF" you happen to be online here when the replies were typed, the system thinks you saw them and won't send an email.

    Thanks Steve,

    I used to get emails but I've not had one for a while now. It's unlikely that I was still on line when any reply to my last thread was posted. It also occurs to me that I didn't get any notification from other threads to which I've posted replies.

    Now, there are some circumstances, until 12 days ago I was in Portugal and I know that I can't log in when I'm there, but my last post was only a couple of days ago. In previous years whilst in Portugal I used to receive notifications of stuff I was doing before I went. I don't believe that to be the reason but what do I know?

    Also, I recently changed my email password but I'm still getting all the other stuff, junk and spam included. That ought not to be the reason either. I don't have junk or spam folders, I see every incoming email and decide what to do with each one.

    I didn't know about no notification whilst logged in, that would explain why I've missed incoming posts sometimes whilst actively replying to a thread. Embarrassing sometimes when it looks as though I've just copied advice given in the previous post.

    I didn't get notification of your reply either.

    Have you looked online at Vxxxxx.net to see if anything is in the spam folder?

    Odds are if you switched to an @Gmail.com account here you'd get the emails.

    Cheers Steve,

    I may've fixed it but can't tell... Nothing I've posted to has been updated for a few days

    What did you do that may have fixed it?

    I didn't get a notification about your last post, so it's still not fixed.

    These still apply.

    A while back, VBF had 21 sister sites... I had to switch to a GMAIL account on about half of them to get emails.... My Road Runner @tx.rr.com didn't like the spam looking emails...

    Re: Problem with email

    Hi, I think I found the problem...

    I always have my 'Spam Filter' turned off... It has somehow turned itself back on, maybe during an update.
    It's back off again now.

    Will wait to see if it's cured, if so I'll make this my last post but mark it 'Resolved'.

    I haven't received notification emails for forum 'new threads' or 'updated threads' for months now.

    I suggest you check through this thread to see if you can get a clue from the above.
    Your post (this one) has confirmed that I've found the problem with my emails. (Thank you).

    Yup, I’m getting notifications for threads that I’ve posted in, but not getting notifications for “new threads” or “updated threads” (if I’ve not posted).

    Oh !

    I don't believe that's an option. I suggest that you just open the forum in which you're interested and scroll through it to see if you can help.

    I do that most days, I look for threads which have zero replies.
    If I do take a look at a thread has replies it'll be one about a subject that I'm familiar with, or... Something with which I too have trouble.
