    Email notification

    Running WinXPSP2, Mozilla 1.7.12, For quite sometime now I have not been getting any Email notification of answers to my queries. I have checked the box below and confirmed my profile is correct.

    Re: Email notification

    What ISP are you using?
    Some arbitrarily block some emails in their efforts (?) to be a Spam blocker service.

    Re: Email notification

    I think it would be worthwhile to check with your ISP to see what their policy is regarding email blocking. I found out about Verizon blocking my emails from the Lounge because Claude checked and said there where a number of "bounces" back from Verizon users.
    Maybe if Claude spots this he might look at that aspect, but I would Definitely call your ISP on this if the Lounge is the only place with missing mail responses. They can also do a check on the wopr address to see if there is any obvious problem there.

    Re: Email notification

    OK, just talked to my ISP and he told me how to let the Lounge in, but I need an Email address for the Lounge. The website www.wopr.com is not enough for it to work.

    Re: Email notification

    Do you mean the address emails from the Lounge are 'from'?

    Try: <code>loungeadmin@wopr.com</code>

    Re: Email notification

    Just curious, since I'm unable to contribute to this thread - did your ISP tell you why they are blocking the Lounge emails?

    Re: Email notification

    No they didn't say WHY but gave me a possible fix. Has to do with the settings for Anti-Spam or some such.

    Re: Email notification

    I have NOW entered the FIX which involced putting the lounge on a SAFE list. Now I'll just wait and see if that makes any difference. Perhaps someone could send me a note and see if the Notification comes thru.

    Thanx for all the help. Excellent site as ALWAYS.

    No. I guess I'll have to learn to live without it and just check the Lounge more frequently.

    Re: Email notification

    Based on a little test, reply-to-post notification messages are sent "from" the following:

    Displayed name: LoungeAdmin
    Email address: my own email address as listed in my profile

    If your filtering service discards anything "from-you-and-to-you" that originates from outside its network or isn't authenticated, then such a notification would never reach you. Can you raise this with your ISP and see what they say?

    Re: Email notification

    Verizon also had a so called safe list, called a "whitelist", where you entered what THEY thought was Spam but you knew was OK.

    The problem was that it didn't work until they ALSO entered the name on THEIR whitelist.

    Check back with your ISP and don't give up. Make enough noise and they will eventually listen.
