[FIXED] New PM Email Notifications?

Am I the only one that doesn’t get emails? I have the option turned on, but I never get an email when I receive a message. I’m also still getting emails whenever anyone edits a post on a subscribed thread even though I have that option turned off.

You are not the only one. I have the same problem. Option turned on, but don’t get an email. The only emails I got are about the threads, were I post someting.

Light up the darkness.

Same here.  I'm trying to watch on the site itself to make sure I'm not missing something.

I have had the same problem for quite some time now. If anyone figures out how to fix it that would be cool.

I am already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth.

I had this issue when I first signed up and had to PM SB about it.  He fixed it right away.  Perhaps someone should just let him know it's malfunctioned.

Hi everyone,

I think this issue should be fixed now. Could everyone please go into their user account settings on the main page and scroll toward the bottom and choose one of the email notification options for private messages?

Thanks a lot, hope this helps! Have fun.

Thanks, Sb. I gave up having you fix my PM notices because they’d just stop working in a day or two anyway. Glad I was not alone in this problem. Let’s hope this does the trick. Wink

Thanks again! Smile

Now, when I click on the link in the email notifications I get a “You are not authorized to access this…” type of message

Hmm, could you describe exactly where you see this message? Thanks!

I got notification emails for the threads about the Keepower battery group buy and the Defiant 98mm light. When I clicked on the link in the emails, I got the “not authorized” page. There were maybe 10 emails that all failed.

It does seem to be working now, the latest notifications worked.

The other forum puts a little green check mark next to threads one has posted in. Could that be possible here? Can’t seem to keep track of threads I have posted in & if I check e-mail notification I get ‘FLOODED’ with e-mails. The threads posted in check mark is a really nice feature over there.
