Notifications of private messages

A few months ago I stopped receiving email notifications of new private messages.

I've checked my board preferences, and the feature is still enabled for me.

I've checked my email account, and the address is not blocked.

The sending address for these notifications is, or used to be, silverscreenoasis2 at gmail dot com.

Is anyone else experiencing this issue?

I hadn't thought about it or noticed, but it seems they are not sending anymore. I think there is a setting that is enabled but missing some information. I'll see if I can find out and get it going again.

Have you had any luck with this issue, Lomm? I am not receiving notifications, either.

No but we do have a support ticket in with our host. Hoping they can help out.

I thought I would provide an update, even though it's not particularly great news. After everything we have tried, I have been utterly unable to get PM notifications to send out in email. I will continue to look into this as I'm able, but frankly I'm a little baffled and frustrated. Best advice for now is to be sure to check your notifications at the top right of the forum page for new PMs. Wish I could have a better report for you.

Thanks for the update, Lomm. For those of us who visit the board regularly, as you mentioned we see an indicator on any page we load, right under the banner. For those who do not visit regularly, or who may not be logged in when they do, the emailed notifications were handy. Thank you for trying. :)

I remember well the hype of the late 1960s and early 1970s which promised that computers would make our lives very easy and uncomplicated! I am yet waiting for that to come true.

The lack of notification does not bother me because no one ever talks to me but I do hope that a solution presents itself before it becomes a matter of your tearing out your hair. ;)
