    . I will send you now a Pm. It is 1.00 a.m. German Time.
    . I would be surprised if you get a notification of a PM by Email, as since I have the Problem with Thread Post Notification I have had the same problem with PM. -. That is to say I do not get Email notifications of euther ( I still get notification of a PM when I am logged in and refresh the Excel Forum page ).
    . The problem by me ( with both ) started at about the date of my First Post in this Thread.
    . Then surprisingly i got those two noitification a couple of Days ago, but then since then nothing again. ( About 6 PMs and about 8 Thread replies I had were not notified of )

    .Pete
    .....I just got over 20 Notifications of Thread replies and PM's over the period of about 2 minutes. - , I think roughly they are what I was missing since the last Notification I got at the same time that you got your last ones early on 29th (Your / our time is within 1 hour the same , I think ? )
    . I am no where as near as active as you, Pete. - I bet your Email In Box is Full?????
    .
    . FWIW:
    . I checked my settings... I am still set at Instant Notifications, not "All at once" !!!

    Yes, something must have flushed out the blockage, as I got a deluge of email notifications this morning for the last couple of days.

    Just now seems to be working OK. Had a few notifications ove the last 20 munutes or so.
    . Finger's crossed
    . Would be nice if the TT mentioned occaisionally what they are doing. ( If they were the culprits ) - Maybe a "Sticky Notice Board" for TT & EF Activity would be good. - I have not been at Excel Forum long, but there seems to ba a lot of tome spent tryoing to second guess what these guys are doing.. ( Maybe There is such a Platform already?? )
    Alan

    P.s.
    I did not get the deluge for the missing Notifications from the first 10 Days that the problem effected me, ( Thankfully!!)

    Maybe the email system had electronic constipation for a few days and someone administered the equivalent of Liver Salts and flushed it all out!

    Pete........
    I and at least one other
    http://www.excelforum.com/excel-gene...ot-notify.html
    are not getting E-mail Notifications again..

    .. and recently people appear not to be responding very quickly, or not at all, and I have the feeling they are missing earlier responses in a Thread, not responding and then going on to do a repeat answer of one already given early on in the Thread. All suggesting a failure in communications a little.

    ...................
    .. can you tell me if you receive notification of this ?

    ..

    I will P.M . you too

    . The system seems to have been “flushed out” again and I , (and as at least a few others have told me, ) have received a large back log of emails this morning.
    . I will report back and re mark the Thread as solved again later if I find the Notification system functioning normally

    @ Pete_UK ( I did not eventually PM you as your box was full )

    Hi Alan,

    sorry, I've been away a couple of days.

    I noticed on Tuesday morning that I hadn't received notifications for some responses from that night, so it must have stopped sometime on Monday evening/night.

    However, when I got back a couple of hours ago they all seem to have been "flushed out", which is what had happened last time.

    And yes, I've not had time to empty my in-box for PMs from last time.

    Pete

    .. Yep, same as last time.
    . A few people have told me they also had the problem, so at least we are not alone.
    . I am a bit concerned that efforts may go to waste if an OP does not get notification of an answer. By me that is less of a problem, I tackle Threads less technically challenging that take longer, longer codes etc., , and often the OP regularly looks back at the Thread to check or re get more info. .. But for some of you guys giving lots of quick answers to many Threads I fear some of your efforts may be wasted due to the Forum software. – By the time the system flushes itself out the OP may have gone elsewhere and got a solution
    . I will remark the Thread as solved….. for now.

    Hi
    I did not get an Email Notification of a recent reply. Not sure if that was an isolated case or if the problem is back.
    Anyone Else?

    I had the feeling traffic is low / slow recently at ExcelForum. Maybe this is annother contrubuting factor to that?
    Alan

    P.s. Anyone care to reply to this, and i will report back if I am notified, thanks

    EdiT: Definitely not working for me today. Missed a few now

    I have my general settings as Do Not Subscribe, but I still get the E-mails. I have had to set my E-mail client to delete them automatically!
