    No email notification

    This started in my post on the "test forum" where I haven't been getting any email notifications from the Lounge regarding new posts to my watched threads.

    See <post#=455131>post 455131</post#>

    Claude has advised that there has been trouble with other Verzon.net Loungers also.

    I guess my question is how and who should track this trouble down? IS anyone else from the admins group aware of this?

    Re: No email notification

    Yes, the emails still bounce thus
    <hr> relay.verizon.net [206.46.232.11]:
    >>> MAIL FROM:<loungeadmin@wopr.com> BODY=7BIT SIZE=2412
    <<< 450 Requested mail action not taken-Try later:sv17.verizon.net<hr>
    Same goes for password recovery and daily archives.

    I guess you should send a link of this thread to verizon. Past experience has been that ISPs are very very reluctant to accept that there is a problem at their end. I receive some 3 to 400 bounces per day and have long given up contacting ISPs. <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>
    Cheers, Claude.

    looks like they're working on it. The "improved" <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> error now is:
    <hr> relay.verizon.net [206.46.232.11]:
    <<< Connection timed out<hr>

    Re: No email notification

    Claude,
    After a lengthy conversation with my Verizon rep in India, she agreed to originate a trouble ticket to see if their techs can find out why this is being blocked.
    I have since learned that emails from my brother-in-law who teaches at the University of Rome, Italy are ALSO not being passed on to me. So now there are at least two locations that I am not receiving my mail. So far as I KNOW these are the only two being affected at this point. How & why this is happening no one seems to know. Hopefully the progress you noted is a good sign.

    Re: No email notification

    Did you tell India that it is happening to others ?

    No change in status from my end.
    Cheers, Claude.

    Re: No email notification

    Claude,
    Guess they are still "working on it".
    I did mention that there were other Verizon customers having similar problems but they said it would have to be handled on a case by case basis. They have to know the "to & from" addresses. No class action trouble reports!

    I'l keep posting to my own thread until I see an email come back and let you know.

    Re: No email notification

    Bob,

    From memory, when you reply to your own posts, the lounge software doesn't send you a notificiation because it assumes that you already know what is being said. Of course, that logic could be wrong. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Re: No email notification

    Calude,
    That is probably wrong in my case anyway. Figures I could use all the help I could get!
    I'm almost sure that I received notifications if I replied to my own post instead of the original poster.

    How else would you be able to test notifications beyond waiting for another person to reply ?

    Well, let's see then, maybe I've disabled that feature a while ago and don't remember. <img src=/S/gramps.gif border=0 alt=gramps width=20 height=20>

    I did indeed. I guess there's nothing wrong if one having a good conversation with oneself.
    Cheers, Claude.
