Thanks Jeff, got my first notification today.

I thought you had dropped out, Rob too.  We all need to set our priorities as we get older I guess.  After 10 years and with a heavy heart I closed our choose-n-cut Xmas tree biz for good.  Met a lot of nice people along the way and brought joy to a lot of little elves.

Merry Christmas!

Gonna necro this thread to avoid creating a new one (I didnít see any more recent threads in my searches).

Itís been a long time since Iíve gotten an email for the various pmís I receive. Thatís troublesome, Ďcause on the occasions where my forum activity dies down (like now, I havenít been posting much lately), I rely on emails to let me know I should log in to check my messages.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Iíve been having the same problem for a couple weeks, at least.

Same here, looks like notifications aren't working for me either.

Thanks for bringing this up, Iíve had this problem for a while now and thought it was just my email, but looks like itís a wider spanning issue.

Yeah, this has complicated some things.  Might not hear back from some folks in days (likely due to them not getting a notification that they have a PM), and by the time they respond back days or week later, the item they wanted has already sold.

Likewise, when trying to buy something, the seller may not respond for awhile--same reason.

 ;yes thanks alot for helping out with the messages notification, another important issue is the group not showing up when googling it, that means no new members, even members when typing the group not shows 🤔

Me too.  Haven't been getting emails saying I have a PM waiting.  I'd guess it's been that way for a month now?

Many thanks for addressing this!  I really enjoy using the forum, and I'm learning a lot from it.

Just gotta report that I again didn't get an email notification for a private message I received almost 24 hours ago. Not sure if there are issues again or not, but I thought I should report it just in case.

It looks like this problem has popped up again. I received a PM but no email notification. I checked my message settings, which are set to always receive an email notification. I also checked my email's spam folder in case it ended up there, but it did not. This is not the most important problem in the world, but it is a bit annoying because the Forum was finally running perfectly again.

I can confirm that the problem is back. I received more than one PM here, without any email notifications.

I had the same problem.
Due to lot's of work I haven't been looking at the forum for a while, and today, I noticed I had a bunch of PMs to answer, but received 0 email alerts for those.
Life is all about learning, but sometimes, the more you learn, the less you seem to know...

The link "Show new replies to your posts" in the top left region of every page is helpful.

I'm not sure how that's related to the topic.

Got my first PM in a long time today, but got no email about it.  I saw in the Help that if we're running version 2.0 in "Change Settings" there's an option to "Notify by email every time you receive a personal message".  I found it and changed that option from "Always" to "Never" and then back again.  Hopefully that will trick the setting into working correctly.  We'll see.

Hmm, I stopped receiving all emails again. I'll try that trick and see if it works.

There's no "tricking" the forum software, it's going to perform the same way unless/until there's an upgrade or host change. What changes is how your ISP, mail client, etc., view email coming from this forum.

Looking at the DNS records, here's my guess on what happened recently. The forum was moved to a new IP last Saturday (Dec 4th):
https://viewdns.info/iphistory/?domain=tropicalfruitforum.com

That new IP is shared by 150 other websites:
https://viewdns.info/reverseip/?host=192.252.156.17&t=1

All those sites (most likely) share the same mail server and definitely are subject to the same content classification/filtering many ISPs and 3rd party sites do these days. Sites sharing the same mail server can be sending out spam and/or unwanted mass emails and the mail server IP goes on black/block lists, everybody suffers. If some site on the IP has mature content or other filtered content, all sites can also be dinged. ISPs (Comcast has particularly sucked in the past) can have internal blocklists that you don't even know your site is on. Getting off those lists is a constant battle.

The solution is to be on your own IP and using your own mailserver. That solves these problems and comes with additional benefits, but it's also a few magnitudes more expensive. Not cost-prohibitive in today's environment, but more members would need to contribute during the yearly fund drive.
