Anyone not getting Email notifications for subscribed topics

Post by tomtom123 » Sep 28, 2013 11:39 am

A couple of days ago, i stopped receiving email notifications when someone replies to topics i've subscribed to. This didn't happen before so i don't know why i'm not received email notifications. I've checked preferences and settings are good....checked spam nothing there...

That's not the cuase of the problem...it's an email server issue, either with phpbb in general or wiht intermediate servers not passing the notifications along. It's been discussed before (see the search I listed above).

Not much to be done about it at our end, at least not by any of us. :(

Here's a little something on the phpBB subscription mechanism...

This seems to confirm some of the behavior I've seen re: visiting subscribed forums. However, the delays are another issue that I would guess are related to processing and traffic from the huge number of emails generated by obsolete subscriptions of 18000 members.

It shouldn't be too difficult to garner some information about what the ES phpBB server application is doing to try to get a handle on this....
