Not getting email copies of PMs
« on: November 06, 2015, 09:03:52 am »
I have just realised that I am not getting email copies of PMs sent to me despite having set the option on.  Has anyone else noticed this?  I have had recent problems with my computer but do not think those relate to this apparent problem.

I got one yesterday, no problem, I use IE to check my e-mails now after having had all sorts of problems with Outlook Express.

Check your spam filter and folder?

Did that; though I did wonder if my ISP has invoked a new level of spam filtering.  Hence the question.  And I also set notification to on, on this thread which has not worked; though I guess that uses the same email sender address.

Looking at the log files, it seems that outgoing emails from the new server were being blocked by some providers (AOL being one).

I have switched to an external mail delivery service to get around this and it seems to be working ok now.

Keep me posted if you feel you're missing any notifications.

Thanks,
Q
