Default Site not sending email notifications for PM's

For some reason, I'm no longer receiving email notifications whe I receive a PM. I've checked my ISP Spam/Graymail folder and nothing there. Any ides as to what the issue could be?

Yeah, I forgot to mention I checked all my settings already and everything is as it should be. Also just sent myself a test PM and received no email notification.

So, which Mod do I need to PM in order to get someone to look into this issue since there has been no response to this thread?

This action had no effect on the issue.

Maybe try this:

Clear out the site's settings where you entered your email address
Log out of CGN
Clear your cookies
Log back in
Set up your email contact info again


Edit: Do you get email notifications to thread subscriptions?

Ot is also possible that your ISP has blacklisted the mail server ip. Last time I checked the mail server ip it was being geolocated as being in Italy. I discovered it after I had setup my email server at home to block all non-North American ip addresses to block spam.

Did as you suggested - no change. And yes, I am receiving emails for replies to subscribed threads.

Good suggestion but I'm getting email notifications for replies to subscribed threads so my ISP can't be the issue.

Uncheck the box on your UserCP for email notifications of PM, make sure you go to the bottom of the page and ‘Save Changes’.

Then turn it back on and save changes. Send yourself a PM and see what happens.

Do you have another email address you can plug in for a quick test? Preferably at a different domain.

I've already done that and it changed nothing. If the site is sending me email notifications for thread replies but not for PM's, would that not indicate the problem lies within the forum software?

That is my thought too, I was just trying to see if you could shake it off somehow. By trying all these things, you have at least eliminated what it isn't and that will help narrow down what it is.

There may be some janky flag or something on your account that only a site admin can fix.

From another vBulletin board I'm on, don't know if it applies;

Quote:
Do you have a Sbcglobal, Pacbell, ATT, or AOL email? Read this.

Here is why:
Many years ago those providers (I think they are under one entity now) stopped delivering BARF emails to their users. Our emails are not placed into the users junk / spam folders. They never see the email.

What this means to current BARFers:
Current users with Sbcglobal, Pacbell, ATT,and AOL: emails never receive emails from BARF. No subscription notification, no PM notification, nothing (Admin emails appear to be sent differently and may not be affected).

Forgot your password? Users with Sbcglobal, Pacbell, ATT, and AOL emails will not receive a password reminder / reset email.

Want to change your email address? You will need to change it to a different email provider. For all the reasons above, we will not allow users to update their email to a Sbcglobal, Pacbell, ATT, and AOL address.

Nope - don't use any of those ISP's. I'm a member of BARF too.
