Travel Forums System Talk Notification...


Last Post

Think I have a problem with email alerts. I have it set to notify me when i get a message (and it confirms this on the top of my mail centre), but I haven't actually received any alerts for a while, and hadn't actually noticed that i had a couple of messages waiting.

Any ideas why this might happen?

Thx. Rich

hmm, that sounds odd. I've been getting alerts consistently still. Do you have any junk mail settings perhaps?

I have been having trouble with my own travellerspoint email account recently and some difficulties sending out, so maybe there is something strange going on. I'll look into it - thanks for letting us know.

I haven't got any email notifications in a while, too, and mine is set to notify me as well.

Hmm, this isn't good.. I got our host to reset the mailserver earlier today. Have either of you had any notification in the last 12 hours or so? I guess you would have received one for this post if it was working. If not, we'll definitely have to get on to this!

Hi Peter,
I just checked and nothing was sent to me. I noticed this post so early because I went to the Travel Forums page and noticed that I wasn't the last person to post in the System Talk forum . .. so I checked to see what was going on and you had replied to this thread! I was subscribed to it, too.

Hey Steph,

Bummer. . still strange though, because I did get a notification.. I'll get in touch with the host about this then. Thanks for letting us know about the problem.

Hi Peter, just to really confuse things...

I don't normally bother with posting reply notifications and specifically ensured that this one was set not to inform me. Despite that I got one notification (a bluewav post), but only one, depsite 4 reply's to the post...

Have not had a personal msg since, so can't yet prove that either way.

Yep, I got a reply notification sent to me about my duct tape thread in the general talk forum (only one, though there have been multiple posts) the same or next day after I initially posted here. But after that, I got nothing again, and I know that there have been lots of replies in threads I've subscribed to.

Also, I got 3 messages in my message center from people asking for travel help and didn't get notified even though it is set to in my prefs. For some reason at the time I thought that it was because when travel helpers message you it doesn't notify you . . .. but don't ask me where I got that idea! Must have been too late/early in the evening/morning or something . . . . heh

Hi Steph, I'm curious to know if you received notification for this post? I've been messing around with things a little - not sure if it has fixed it or not.

Hey Peter,

Nope, no notice in my email :(

Thanks for trying to fix the problem. I got your message you sent to my message center- thanks. But no email notifications for that, either.

Hopefully it works soon
