What happened to the alerts?

Post by LairaBehr4 » Thu Nov 20, 2008 11:26 pm

I haven't been receiving my usual alerts for a few days now. I checked my subscription list in the User Control Panel, and I'm guessing that less than 10% of my alerts are getting sent to my e-mail account. I checked my Spam folder and they're not there, either. Then this evening I received a PM, and for that, too, a notification was not sent to my e-mail account.

Can you guys please look into what the heck is going on here?

Thank you,

Ditto!

Thanks guys!

I'm having the same problem Laira and Ashley are. I haven't gotten anything since Sunday. I checked my spasm too and nothing is there.

Thank you guys.

It has come to my attention that Gmail has put us on their blocked spam list. I contacted them to try to get us off of it as our members only receive email from the board when requested. I was told by them that they have no "whitelisting" process right now. Once you're on the blocked list with them, you can't get off.

Comcast is another ISP we've had problems with. If anyone has an email address other than Gmail or Comcast and are not getting notifications, please let me know.

I don't get them with yahoo either. Although I have opted out of reply notifications, I haven't got PM notifications this week.

Also, kind of OT and not really important but, the time on RF seems to be off by thirty minutes. Or is it just me.

I've noticed that time thing too. I'm using yahoo as well and no notifications are working for me.

Thanks for letting us know.

This seems to be a boardwide problem now. I'm looking into it.
