Reply Notification Test

Post by schwartzy18510 »

I've been having issues with not getting email alerts when a reply is posted to one of my posts. It seems to affect both threads that I've authored as well as individual replies, despite my ensuring that the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box is checked. This post is intended to test this issue definitively, so if someone could drop a test reply I'd appreciate it.

Thanks! Received a notification here on GenVibe, but nothing via email in either my inbox or junk folders. Checked my "blocked senders" list and verified GenVibe wasn't listed. Also ensured all settings in my profile were configured to send me an email any time I receive an alert. Still no dice. I'll try contacting one of the moderators to see what's going on.

Thanks, joatmon. Same as before — I received a notification here on the forums, but no email notification. This issue has been causing me to miss replies to threads I've authored or commented on in the past and I'm determined to try to resolve it. I hate leaving a thread I've authored "hanging" without a response after another user has taken the time to comment or offer helpful advice.

I just reset my forum password in an effort to "refresh" my previously saved email address on file from my original sign-up back in 2014, which has not changed since. It's a long shot, but I see no other reason in either my User Control Panel settings or personal email settings as to why the email alerts wouldn't be coming through.

Well, it could be the site is having issues sending emails. You'll just have to remind yourself to come visit us daily! :D

For what its worth, email notifications don't work for me either. This isn't a problem for me, since the email account I used for genvibe is one I seldom check, but indicates that the email issue is more of a site thing instead of being limited to just shwartzy18510

I don't get replies either.

phpBB has a number of foibles, and I'm certain that the owner hasn't put much time into maintenance. This being kept up just as a service; there's no real money it it.

If necessary, I'd host it myself - but I probably wouldn't be able to put much more time in it either.
