    Receiving replies part 2

    From this resolved.

    https://www.vbforums.com/showthread....eiving-replies

    I have noticed the same problem for a month or so and also I am missing new post replies.
    I have a yahoo account so no Gmail issues.

    I haven't checked for logged in and stuff but I'm at the forums for a long time so I would know how my email and replies flow goes and clearly there is an issue.
    Have you changed anything on the Forum email wise the past few months?
    Maybe the Email server is getting full an is cutting emails down?

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    There have been NO changes on the Site's Server side that would affect outgoing emails.

    We have 12 OTHER Forum sites and have NOT had a "massive" amount of complaints that would normally be generated "IF" an issue were on the Server Side.

    YOUR profile has an option-> Receive Admin Emails which you have set to NO.

    Me thinks you'll get better results if you change that to YES.

    Adding -> forums@vbforums.com to your White List/Approved List on Yahoo would help.... Switching to a @GMail.com account is something else to consider.

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    Hi.
    I haven't ever touched the profile settings. So OK I switched "Receive Email from Administrators" .
    Again, I did not say that I don't receive emails at all, just said that they are not coming as previously and have a month or so to receive more than one email reply from a thread.
    My yahoo spam folder is empty, vbforums emails , when they come around are always on the inbox folder .
    Thanks

    TEST POST.

    Did you get an email due to this test post happening when you were NOT logged into VBF?

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    You need to try some of the other things I've mentioned above.

    And if anyone would reply to this thread to help me test... I've subscribed to it just now to receive emails. Thanks

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    I've done everything you mention except changing my email account, because, I don't want to change my email account.
    Unless you implying that only Gmail works that, in that case I prefer not to receive email from the forum.

    You added VBF to your white list/not spam? If so you might need to contact them and have them added it on their end.

    As you can see... I received an email:

    Hello Steve,

    I have the same thing than Sapator. Most of the time I don't get the emails about the threads I follow and I didn't change anything. But it is not an issue for me as I go on the forum everyday several times.

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    I've got your response on yahoo for post #8
    I never got a response for Delaney's post.
    I'm not sure if I was logged on or off as I was writing a post in another thread an hour ago and then logged out.
    About contacting yahoo. I don't see the point as some emails come through and some not, so it's not that nothing is coming to my email box.
    Also as a previous experience of our company contacting Gmail for an issue , that took a couple of weeks of communication, i really Really REALLY don't want to contact yahoo but i think that if a blocking is done from an email client on multiple users then the one that aught to contact the email company is vbforums, not the users.

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    On other an forum I go (https://www.developpez.net/forums/f4...gages/vb-net/) if you get a message because of a response on a thread and you don't go to see it, you won't get other emails for more responses until you go to see the thread. Maybe it is the same here. I say that because I got one email for the response of Steve but not for the response of Sapator.

    How much MONEY would you be willing to pay to be a member here if the site provided services like you mentioned

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    LOL.
    I think you misunderstood.
    If the email issue is happening for a lot of member you can report that to yahoo. I bet there is a form or something. Unless it's not yahoo specific and all email clients are blocking some emails from the site. Then you have to get to the whitelist again. There is a procedure that the company does to get whitelisted because we are probable sending 5-10.000 email daily but I don take part on that procedure and we are on lockdown now so I can't ask someone.

    I had forgotten about that "rule." There is no sense that the system send me a second email about 2kaud has replied when I in theory will come here to see sapator's reply.

    Re: Receiving replies part 2

    Fine but I did not get either your reply or 2kaud reply and I was not logged in when either of you replied.
    Are you sure you are not blacklisted on yahoo?
