E-Mail notification from posts

Hi Erik/David,

Just to let you know - I have noticed today that the E-Mail notification is intermittent - I got two out of six posts. One was as normal but the other was a reply to an older post (reply 5) and I got the original post text.

 

  • Hi Dave,

    I have checked the settings today. Although I could only see a few errors in the log (I could see that Waldo's server refuses emails!), then I found a few things that looked strange in my SMTP email setup. I hope it fixed the errors, otherwise please let me know ASAP.

  • Hi Erik,

    The notifications for this post came through not problem - I'll keep an eye on it today

  • Hi Erik,

     Sad Still no notification except to this post.

  • In reply to DaveT:

    That's strange. After I did my changes this morning, everything looked fine! But now I see your problem is back!

    Let me see if I can find out what's wrong!

    I don't know what's going on for you.

    I can see in the mail logs that many mails has been sent to you today. Your own mail server is confirming this.

    So did you check your "Junk E-mail" folder? I have the same problem when I receive email notifications from Communityserver.com (from the support forum from the company behind the software used to run this site). It's something about you're receiving many emails that more or less look the same, all including several URL links, but not so much else.

     

  • Hi Erik,

    I will check our mail server setting in the morning - thanks for checking this out.

  • That's good. Let me know what you find out.

  • I have the same problem. For me when I am active, I get so many notifications that it was hard to reconcile.

     

    Also Erik, as you are aware there is a MASSIVE BUG in CS, been there for some time now that means we get notifications of our own posts. maybe its related. Surely there must be a fix for that, since the BUG has been around for a long time now.

  • Actually the email seems to work fine.

    Yes I know about this "bug". But I have found a good allied at CS and he's paying for a full license, so they are a bit more attentive to his reports, than to mine! Sad I was able to get the license for free (normally $20000 and up).

    But I also found another thing when I was debugging the mail server yesterday. The building anti spam stuff was not enabled. After I enabled it yesterday, then the number of junk emails is actually down to 5 to 10 today. Normally I'm getting 300-400 junk mails per day to my webmaster account. So maybe you can start use your coadmin account agian! Wink

    Hi Erik,

    I wonder if this is a symptom of a bigger issue. I have noticed the in my profile activity is listed is missing today's posts and when I drilldown on the post count - some on the recent one are missing / mixed up - e.g. It saying the this post and repies are on Wednesday. I wonder is it a time/date issue.

    I thought this was a "Undocumented Feature" Wink

    Hi Erik,

    I am still having problems with this and am only getting an occasional notification. I have check my mail server/Junk mail filters and it doesn't seem to be there.  I have tried turning off notification and then turning back on the next day without sucess. Can you have another check on my account.

    Thanks
