Not getting email notifications

    I just realized I'm but getting an email notification when a new thread is posted, or updated.
    I checked my profile and everything looks correct. It lists my primary email I use every day.
    I checked my spam box.
    The correct boxes are checked to receive emails.

    Can someone check this out?

    Everything looks right on the back end. The only thing I can guess is that sometimes your Yahoos and your Googles, etc. block certain types of mail as potential spam (and doesn’t even send it to your spam folder), just blocks it at the server level.

    I personally have never watched a forum for new threads, but I’m testing it now to see what it’s like (and see if it works for me). I’ve only watched threads.

    The question is, did you receive an email about this post? Or just an alert in the top right corner?

    Just an alert in the upper right corner.
    No email in inbox or spam.

    I see I do get conversation emails, as I've sent and received a few from sunalp recently.

    I did notice something in my Yahoo mail.
    At one time I set it to automatically send all SAOCA email to a folder SAOCA. I checked, but the emails aren't going there. In fact, the only emails there were from 2010-11. I searched SAOCA, which searches all of my email folders. Nothing current was found.

    I'll remove that folder and see if anything changes.

    I'm also in some other groups. I get email notifications. So I don't have to go to the site to check for messages and posts.

    Very strange. I did get an email when you replied to this thread.

    So far I haven’t gotten an email regarding the forum I followed as a test. But that’s most likely because no new threads have been posted to it.

    And I just got an email from the watched forum. So all is well on the server end of things.
