    Default No Longer Getting Forum E-mail notifications

    I used to receive e-mail updates to threads that I am subscribed to when someone made a new post. For the last few months, I get nothing.

    When I log in, I can see that those threads have updates!

    I tried resetting my preferences but to no avail.

    Can someone guide me to a solution?

    Thanks,
    -Bruce

    I've never gotten email updates. There are email updates?

    I used to get them as well. Sometimes they'd show up in SPAM, but I'd always move them back and now they're just gone. Not that big a deal as I always check "NEW POSTS" when I log in.

    That's interesting. I did get e-mails for each new post. It was great for when an old post woke up again.

    I don't spend a lot of time online without prompting! The e-mails were actually helpful.

    I know they aren't in my spam but where they are is a deep mystery.

    I stopped getting them as well. It may be they time-out eventually. I deleted almost all, then as a test subscribed to several. I am getting those notifications.

    Granted there is a line in the heads-up:

    There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.

    Here's a hack. I went to my profile and changed my email to a different address I use. It's less convenient, but it worked. When I tried to change it back to my original address, it didn't work... Gotta love computers.

    Same issue here, and I agree THIS is the best solution.
