Email Notifications

I'm not sure if this has already been covered or is under review, but I have not had any notifications since the forums got upgraded. I tried a search, but everything was old and involved peoples spam filters. Any ideas?

Does your email autodelete anything it regards as spam or does it simply get routed to a junk mail folder?

Neither - I have cox cable (@cox.net address) and it usually delivers all my spam straight to my inbox.

edit: did the "from" address change with the new servers? I can try adding it into my trusted sites or something. I use Outlook Express to get my mail, if that makes a difference.

That's a possibility - it's happened to me a couple times over the years. Editing my safe list solved the problem. I'm getting all of my notifications and haven't noticed any address changes though, so I'm not entirely sure what's up. I had a quick look at your private profile - your control panel settings are set correctly, so there isn't a problem there.

You have email alerts for private messages turned on - try sending yourself a PM, then go see if you can locate the email. Check the address and make sure it's on your safe list.

I have zero experience with Outlook - so I can't help you there.

I haven't been receiving email notification since the forums changed servers so I doubt it's a spam filter issue.

I changed my email address in my profile to my Yahoo address and it works fine. I am still trying to find out why it doesn't work with my cox address - I have all spam filters off and it just won't come through - as a matter of fact, I don't even get the "change email confirmation". I have put in a request to Cox to see if they are blocking it for some reason. Is there anyone I can contact with the forums to see if they (for whatever reason) don't send to/have other problems with Cox addresses?
