    Email notification not working ?

    There have been several replies today to threads that I'm subscribed to, but I have not received any email notifications for them. The last notification I received was yesterday at 19:46.

    Can others confirm that the email notification system is working?

    Here's a test reply Pete. Does this get notified.

    Thanks Richard.

    I've not received a notification of your post yet, but it might be just my email that is affected. Let me know if you get an email.

    Re: Email notification not working ?

    Ah, sorry Pete, I mistook your original. My settings were just to receive notifications in the forum and I missed your mention of email.
    I've temporarily reset my settings to receive notification by email so try a reply now.

    No Pete,

    10 minutes and no email.
    Unless Warrington has declared UDI and absented itself from the interweb looks like it may be a general problem.

    Re: Email notification not working ?

    Okay, thanks for your help, Richard. I find that this happens occasionally, and then after a while I get a burst of replies as if some cache has been cleared. Maybe the server hosting the forum needs a bit of a clear-out.

    Still not working for me. I've sent a PM to Ford to see if he can get the Tech Team to look into it.

    We can indeed. Let's hope my cynicism is miss-placed.

    indeed, the last one I received was nov 4, 22:54, then 4 days nothing and tonight at 3:41 14 notificiations in a row.
    So it's working again.

    Re: Email notification not working ?

    Yes, like a dam bursting I received 21 email notifications overnight (some of them duplicates), so I thank Ford for his help and I'll mark this thread as Solved when I've received another one - not just from the backlog.
