Forum no longer sending email notification on new PMs
« on: July 16, 2017, 08:42:14 AM »
At least for me and one other member. My last email notification was in December 2016. Thanks. Please fix it.

Emailed both admins about not only this but have not been getting notifications of new thread responses in my email account.  No response.

Yeah, admins please fix.

Thanks!

Me too, recently registered and never received an email notification. The welcoming new forum member email wasn't sent too.

Admin please fix!

Did you make sure it didn't end up in your junk email folder?

Ditto.  No notify for item subscriptions or PMs.

Can we fire the admin?

Bribing him with a box of LZ might work better!

Sure no. Inbox/Spam/Junk folder, none of them contained any of forum emails.

I've looked into this, and it looks like GoDaddy is blocking outbound email (by blocking outbound network traffic destined for common SMTP ports). When I called GoDaddy support to get it fixed, the support rep with whom I spoke claimed that they were not blocking outgoing mail. But based on my testing via SSH, the rep is either lying or just plain dumb -- the outbound traffic is obviously being blocked.

I need to call GoDaddy support again and try to get a better support rep. I'll see if I can do that tomorrow. Stay tuned...

Telephone Reps are highly variable and thanks for trying to get this corrected....  If I don't log on for a few days I still want to know via email if I have gotten PMs. So I can log on and reply in a timely manner.

This is needed/important for selling/buying/urgent stuff, especially for members that are usually in their gardens/farms.

I finally got through GoDaddy's port blocking, and I can get email to my work address. However, gmail is still dumping messages, most likely due to bad SPF setup. I'm still futzing with the SPF setup. Hoping to get gmail working by tomorrow.
