    Re: Notifications

    As you may know, notifications are only sent for replies made directly to your post, and not for other messages added to the thread. So you might not have missed many.

    Do you use any kind of spam filter? If so, you need to allow messages from the Lounge (I'm not sure for notifications, but one common sender address is loungeadmin@wopr.com).

    If you use software that demands some kind of response or otherwise bounces the message, the server may cease sending you mail to prevent mail loops. This is just a guess; maybe one of the people that deals with email will be around to explain what really happens to bounced mail.

    Have not received any messages for replies to posts such as the one you directly replied to here. The account we use is an MSN hotmail account we have had for a long time and has no filtering set.

    What needs to be enabled to have notifications sent to our e-mail address? It is listed and turned on in the settings, but no reply notification came from your reply message.

    Emails are sent to your hotmail email address. They do not bounce back, so, they (including test emails I sent you) get eaten up somewhere out of our control. Nothing we can do about that, it's in your hands. I suggest you change your email address to say bruce@somewhereelse.com or whatever.
    Cheers, Claude.

    If you are using hotmail check your spam settings as MS has a way of changing things when you least expect it.

    There is also a web site here which seems to have email capability and even publishes a picture of you. Wouldn't it be more efficient than Hotmail?
