    I switched computers and isp's from earthlink to verizon.

    I still have both systems running, but neither get notifications. The older earthlink address got them fine until I updated my email address, now neither address gets them. I'll be getting rid of the earthlink address after the new verizon address is running better.

    Now I can post OK, but I no longer receive email notifications.

    I've tried updating my new email address, is it normal for the background box to remain yellow when I do this?

    I don't know if the PM system works for me now, can you send me a test message?

    Confidentially, my new email address is chutethemall@verizon.net.

    Thanks,

    Chute

    Yeah, this morning I got ONE email notification, about 11:45 am about the OAF avatar thread.

    Maybe there's a bunch coming.

    I wish I could help, but I'm clueless.

    Got One More!!!

    Yep, at 1:43 AM on 7/17/06 I got notified that "smith10 has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Which are the best smilies? - in the OX & Alex Forum forum of Glock Talk."

    Previously, at 11:53 AM on 7/15/06 I got notified that "ndbullet500 has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Rate the Avatar Above Yours - in the OX & Alex Forum forum of Glock Talk."

    These are the only 2 emails I got from the Glock Talk Mailer.

    The fact that I got these 2 messages leads me to believe the problem is with GT, not me or my new ISP. No problems with other forums or individuals, AFAIK.

    Are others having this problem?

    Once in a while we get reports of people not receiving e-mail notifications.

    I don't use e-mail notifications as it was just too much mail coming in.

    But I haven't heard anything recently about e-mail problems.

    So the notifications are not 100% gone, one slips thru every week or so...I've got a total of 5 this month. I'm getting used to it.

    Hmmm.

    Would that reset my post count back to zero, update my date joined, etc?

    I think she means completely unsubscribe from notifications and then re-subscribe.

    I just got a backlog of 163 messages between 2AM on 9/12 and now!

    Some were over a week old, some already locked.

    Maybe it's fixed?

    Maybe a Cyber-Laxative just kicked in?

    I got notified of this reply at 4:54 PM on 9/14/06 so things are catching up. I rec'd 36 replies today. :shocked:

    I was getting used to no email replies too. :animlol:

    So it's difficult to determine whether this is a blessing or a curse, huh?
