    Emails

    Hi,

    I've just received a private message, but I've not had a 'Thread Reply' email for ages.

    I was told some time ago that there was a problem with that. Since I've just had an email saying that I have a private message does that mean the problem is fixed? If so, why am I still not getting thread reply emails?

    The two emails you mentioned are two different functions. One works, the other one doesn't.

    Ah !

    Clearly it was yourself that told me about it before, I see that it was back in September that this problem started, considering the nature of this web site it seems odd that it's taking so long to fix.

    Yes I know, the problem lies with a different firm, but maybe they could think to ask for some help from the gurus in this forum.

    I'm assuming that moving to a different 'host' would be out of the question for reasons of preserving previous threads if nothing else.

    An employee of the company that owns this site made a tweak that broke it...... is the short version.

    G'Day Poppa

    Sorry you experience on here is currently 'sub-optimal' !!!

    I reported missing emails going on a year ago

    There is a lack of control over the functionality of a site when your boss decides to cloud the SMTP side.

    So I have been giving SRJ the heads up in the past.

    If the cloud SMTP guys have there IPs in the BL then there is almost nothing that the guys on here can do, except wait and that may be years of waiting, I know this from 25 years experience with SMTP starting on a OS2 BBS and training gateway engineers for gov.au and gov.nz, this is all down to the very poor design decisions around open systems lacking security

    Re: Emails

    jg.sa ALWAYS forgets to mention that way back when he was the ONLY PERSON IN THE WORLD that wasn't receiving emails from here.

    He doesn't understand that, that is a very very important factor.
