E-mail notifications not working

Posted 19 May 2015 - 06:45 AM

Is it just me or do e-mail notifications for threads you replied to not work?

I've gone through my settings, and I don't see anywhere that has it turned off. It worked a long time ago, but then stopped and I've just dealt with it.

Just wondering if there's something I can do or if it's a problem with the site?

Even for your reply, I didn't get an e-mail and no it's not in the junk box.

I still get emails, even though I have turned off notifications. It's quite annoying.

I was just looking at my profile, and I do have subscribed topics that I've replied to, but no subscribed forums. Do you need to subscribe to the forums to get the e-mails?

What type of e-mail notification do you use? Instant, delayed, daily, weekly, etc.?

When you reply you are automatically subscribed: You don't set a notification type.

I am subscribed to the areas in which I reply to threads. I don't go looking for threads. So the only threads I would get an initial notification of (in order to reply to it) would be from a forum I watch. In other words, I have delayed notification turned on in the C# area, thus I get an email about new threads in C#, visit it, reply to it, get emails about replies to that thread.

In the settings for your profile, under the forums section, there's a selection box for the type of notification you want, and that's what I was referring to.

I'm looking at your profile from the admin panel. You had PM notifications, comment notifications, and friend notification emails enabled. I have disabled them. You can manually turn on the settings I disabled from your Edit My Profile and Settings pages.

I tweaked a setting of yours that said Allow Admin Emails. Hopefully that helps. If not, I can try changing your email address if you'd like.

Thanks @macosxnerd101 - I remember distincly going in settings and disabling them a while back, maybe there was a cache issue with my browser when it happened?
