Email Notifications

Not seeing email notifications of threads I am active in? Not sure what has changed?

I just ran a test and things seem to be working normally.

Things to check:

Look in your spam folder to see if perhaps your email service is tagging the subscription notices as spam.

Make sure that your account settings related to subscriptions and emails have not changed and are set the way you want them to be set.

Well I managed to lock myself out. What was failing was when I changed my account there was no way to verify my email info. I was not getting the verification emails. Still no clue but I even tried two different email addresses using two different servers and no joy.

MAL fixed it and he manually verified my email address and now things work. Yay!

Thanks
Ron

No, not getting the Email notifications but I am not about to start tinkering. I am back and able to log in and reply to post. My regular Email here has always worked till once about a year ago. So I changed Email and actually went to a different server. That worked and then I changed it back to my original Email and then it worked.

As far as I know my Email works with the Firing Line servers but every now and then we get a glitch and I have no idea why. My server for email is bearblain.com which is a domain I own. This time I tried a change to roadrunner.com and that did not work either. My user interface is setup to receive Email notifications so I have no clue why they suddenly stopped. I had not changed anything.

I am just happy I can post again so again thanks again for that. Interesting though is when I broke the rules, again sorry, even the newly created account would not let me confirm my email and I think on that I also tried two different Email servers.

Now I just try and remember where to look for replies. Threads I am active in.

Just do it like I used to, bookmark the thread until it goes belly up.

... or check your subscriptions under the Quick Links menu.

OK, went into my Email Server and made sure any and all filters like Spam etc were removed. My subscribed threads reflect a bunch of active threads.
