    Exclamation Email notifications have stopped arriving

    I haven't received any email notifications today even though I have the forum settings setup to send me one instantly for the vast majority.

    I checked manually today and noticed that some, but not all email notifications over a five day period arrived on time while others appear not to have been sent at all even though there were several responses in a given post.

    Does anybody know why this is happening?

    Should be coming through. I subscribe through control panel only, not via email, so I can't confirm personally.

    Can others report if they are receiving lounge notices normally?

    Strange, I received this one OK, but no others.

    I received half a dozen emails this morning, but when I correlated what had arrived with what's on my "Subscribed threads" list, I noticed one which has been responded to, but for which I haven't received a notification. That one's entitled "Insert-typeover function driving me nuts" and can be seen in the screenshot at the bottom.

    Firefox has a function called "App Tabs" which allows you to pin tabs to the tab bar, but minimized. When WSS sends me a notification, the background of the hotmail tab I have pinned there turns white so I know when one arrives and can respond to it instantly if need be. That's the main reason I use the email function.

    Everything seems to be back to normal again, so feel free to lock this thread if you wish.
