Email Notifications Not Working (Being Repaired)

Based on a couple of vendor comments, I’ve discovered that the email notifications from the Forum have been offline/not working for several weeks! This is being researched now, and should be back online soon.

My apologies!

It turns out that the volume of emails needing to be sent from the forum to our members (you!) was sufficiently large enough to be reclassified as a high-volume sender. As such, I’ve had to reconfigure and add a new service to support the heavy traffic loads. Who knew!?!?

It may take a few days to clear up, but we should be in good shape moving forward.

Wondering what the status of the notification system is ? TIA

it’s working great now, tons of emails going out daily. some email providers have rejected them, however - yahoo in particular. We show no bounced emails from your account

Two additional things:

  • if you check the forum, it won’t send you email updates (because it knows that you’ve already visited the forum since the last update)

  • you have updates disabled on your account (image below)

Thank you. I made the change and looking forward to updates and posts. Although I visit the site multiple times a day sometimes…:smile:

You are an active user of the forum! (thanks)

This new forum is smart, and won’t pester you unnecessarily (which is cool). The default email time period is weekly; we don’t want for people to disable the emails, and if they appear too frequently then that’s the natural human response.

I check it fairly regularly, too. At least daily
