Am I the only one who is not receiving notifications when someone has posted to a thread that they are subscribed to?
Are you now all keep receiving e-mail notifications?

Sorry to ask this, but do you mean:
Are you all recieving e-mail notifications?
...or did you mean:
Are you all suddenly recieving them after not getting any for a long time?
...Or did you mean something else?
...For myself, I keep writing this, but: I direct attention to this Thread as Mr.WebPM told me (us). But I do not know about such things myself! If anyone is having trouble with their e-mail notifications, then this is the Thread to specify problems about it. (Emphasis upon the word SPECIFY.)

...Same again. Please see the "What happened?" Thread.
This seems to be a current problem hotspot: Missing notifications, Spam, and the "What Happened?" Thread has now reached a length that Posts are missing. I just posted there, but I cannot see my own Post. It appears if I post again, but then will disappear.
Too many problems.... :-(
Hi DC I saw you had replied on the “what happened thread”,,,I had a new notification up above,,,but I cannot your reply when going there via the notification,
Very strange only tw email notifications on Sunday for me,,,,,
This is screen captured email of one it is one from a thread I was watching, the other I won’t post here it was a PM notification,,,I had already seen it in PM and that was a day before.
take care x()x
"take care x()x"...
I would really like to help with this EMail business, but I cannot. As I said upon the other "What Happened?" Thread, I hope WebPM says something.
...Glad to hear from your good self, of course. But for me, summer is still approaching. And for yourself -and Mr. MartianTom - hey-ho, you are both supposed to be resting? Please for Keeping those wits sharp!
Sorry, I have been watching the thread, but I was out of the office yesterday.
I'm not sure that there is much that I can add. (Some) email notifications are coming through, which confirms that the basic configurations are correct, and notifications are going out from our servers. Obviously you can turn notifications on or off on the Notifications tab of your Settings page - but, if you are receiving some notifications for a thread, then you must have the correct setting there.
The most likely possibility remains, in my opinion, that messages are being identified wrongly as potential spam at the receiving end. The problem there is that scoring systems are often used. This can result in the kind of random effect described, whereby one message gets through and others don't (because of the different words in different messages, which lead to different scores). Also, some systems rely on a constantly-changing "reputation" of the sending system, and reject messages while that "reputation" is low.
As I understand it, the same notification (for the same new message) is getting through to some of you and not to others. This is why it seems to me that the cause is more likely to be controlled by the ISPs of those of you who are not receiving messages. Whitelisting the email@example.com address from which notifications are sent may or may not help - it won't do any harm.
I think I mentioned previously that I have a similar problem with notifications from a quite unrelated forum system that I use at home - different servers, different software, different topics from this one. Notifications will arrive for a day or two, then stop for a week, then start again. I've never solved it, and it is very frustrating, but I am inclined to think that my ISP is the cause.
I don't use email notifications, but presumably it also varies by thread depending on the 'Turn Reply notifications on' setting up the top right of the thread? Sometimes this is done automatically for you, like if you start the conversation, but I'm not sure what the exact rule is.
It sounds like it's worth checking the spam folder too, and if you have an option to mark as 'not spam', use that. Maybe even replying to the firstname.lastname@example.org address with a test message.
@WebPM I note the sending server (which was down over the weekend) is in the SpamCop blocklist for the last 2 days (as well as RFC Clueless). The first, hitting spamtraps, may be because of unverified signups - if you had access to the mail logs you may be able to work out what happened.
