    Subscription emails.

    What could be a reason why I have not been receiveing the emails from pet of the day on the threads I subscribe to with instant notification??

    Up until a few days ago I always got the emails. But lately, nothing.

    Just to cover all bases - have you checked your subscription list to make sure they are all listed? Did you look at your User CP to make sure instant notification is still checked?

    If all those are correct, then I guess you need to talk with Karen and Paul.

    Have you checked to make sure they are not going to your spam or junk folder? Your email program may have started filtering them into there, but you can fix that by adding the petoftheday.com to your address book as an approved sender ...

    We have not made any changes to the server in the last few days.

    In addition to checking to make sure they are not being filtered to your spam folder, double check to make sure your email address is current (I've accidentally changed/edited mine before...).

    Who is your provider? Are you using web-based or POP3 (through a program such as outlook)? If so, check those settings as well to make sure they are correct.

    Another e-mail irregularity >>>

    How'z come??

    I tried to send myself a Pet Talk generated E-mail (NOT a PM) ...
    and after I composed the e-mail, I got a Pet Talk pop-up alert
    saying the "the member (ME) doesn't accept e-mails" ... (or words to that effect).

    HUH? ... That's news to me!
    Here's what's on my CP page >>>

    Receive Email
    From time to time, the administrators may want to send you email notices.
    If you do not want to receive these notices, disable this option.
    {checked}
    Receive Email from Administrators


    You can allow other members to send you email messages.
    {checked} Receive Email from Other Members

    So ... why can't I get PT E-mails from other PTers???

    I *DO GET* all my post and PM notification E-mails.

    For a test, I just tried to send Phred an email. Received this message -

    Sorry! That user has specified that they do not wish to receive emails. If you still wish to send an email to this user, please contact the administrator and they may be able to help.

    And the exact same message came up when I tried to send myself one.

    Somehow the emailing of other users had gotten turned off, we just turned it back on.


    That, however, doesn't have anything to do with Jen's original problem!

    By Golly, the E-mailer *WORKS* again!

    I sure did think it was kinda *phunnie* that SOOOOO Many folks had that
    e-mail feature turned off ... forced me to clean up & expand my personal address book.
    THEN I found out *mine* didn't work - sumpin smelt *phisshie* there!

    THANKS, Mayor Karen & Side-Kick Mr. Paul!

    Back to the Original Subject at Hand ...

    Karen & Paul ~

    For what it's worth ... my Subscribed Threads & PM Alert e-mails arrive rather
    promptly - USUALLY.

    But SOMEtimes I only get ONE when there have been two or more replies.
    I KNOW the e-mail plainly states:
    "There may be other replies also, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again." ...

    BUT I also get STRINGS of e-mails reporting each & every post to a thread
    without me ever visiting the site to read any of them.

    I've sometimes thought I hadn't received a posting e-mail because it's been LATE arriving -
    sometimes it's been 10-15 minutes after I've seen & read the post on Pet Talk
    that the e-mail arrives - but that's probably a hang-up out in cyber-space where the
    message went 'round the world a few extra times before it hopped off in Ohio.

    Long way of sayin I don't have a clue whe she doesn't get her notices!

    Maybe the system draws straws on e-mails ...
    *Long Straw = Ya get LOTS of alert e-mails
    * Medium Straw = Ya only get "some"
    * SHORT Straw = Nuffin!!

    Well, for whatever reason, today I recieved the 2 "pet talk mailers" on the threads that my user control panel state had new posts. Could it be working again?

    Looks like it is happening again. No emails on subscribed threads. RATS!

    It *could* have something to do with the server they're currently on being "overloaded" when sending out subscription updates. Maybe since the server is slow loading the site, it's also backed up with sending out email updates too?
