Attempting to resolve some email issues with the forum.

Can any members that receive emails from the forum regularly please respond that they do?
Also, any comments on the email delivery would be appreciated.

Received.
I tend to receive two - one from the Forum to alert for new thread, and one from the thread itself.


Call me Geoff.

I do what I do because I want to, and because I can....

Doesn't mean I know what I'm doing, though!

I receive updates to forums and watched threads. But recently delivery has been spotty and I can go for several days without an email.

Yes, I get email alerts for admin stuff - new posts, reports etc. Seems to work as should from my perspective...

As far as I know I am receiving the notifications, primarily from the check box to notify when a reply is posted.

As far as e-mails go, I see them very irregularly. Last email was dated Oct 31 to notify that a reply was made to a topic I was following.

I'm getting what I expect in terms of notifications from the Forum.

I get a fair number of these, though, with "no message collected"

Seems to me everyone has a different experience of email. I remember setting mine up ages ago but have never changed anything.

Hello,
I receive only e-mail notifications of new activity in bookmarked topics.
I do not receive e-mail notifications of DM/PM

It is consistent with the settings I set on the notification options tab, in my profile page
