    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.
