Hello All,

I have my preference settings as: "Receive e-mail notification of private messages".

This has been my setting since joining this forum. However, I have never received any email notifications for received private messages. I have received several private messages during my time at this forum.

My email address is current.

What is wrong?

Regards,
Geoff

Hi Geoff,

Some while back now this issue was highlighted and dealt with. Looks like its back to plague us once again. I'll ask Vera to contact forumco.com to see whats happened. Something peculiar has happened because I still get e-mail notification so it does work - the key is going to be discovering why things have changed because I suspect it might only be affecting newer members.

Would any of our longer term members please advise here if they get e-mail advice of PM messages please?

Cheers me dears

Janie, the strange thing is I received my first email alert this evening with regard to the private message which you sent me today. I wonder if the problem stems from the private messages being sent from a particular user?

Hello Janie,

Pardon my ignorance, I see you are the administrator of this forum, but who is Vera and what role does she take at this forum?

Thanks,
Geoff

Geoff, Vera I notice was somewhat modest in as much as she didn't tell you that she is the one responsible for putting together our most wonderful tribute site You must be logged in to see this link. to which the DSN is linked. In a nutshell, without our Vera, there wouldn't have been a DSN for us all to enjoy .

Okay I had a look and despite it being possible I will have to leave the service deactivated as it would lead to severe disruptions and slowness on the forum. We would generate a lot more data traffic that way, which would have a negative effect on our general speed. Sorry, wish I could have returned with better news. But I can recommend clicking on the orange XML button at the far end of the main forum page. That at least gives you a main overview over the most recent active topics.

Vera - isn't this the response to Geoff's other query about 'Subscribing to a thread'? This particualar query relates to not receiving an e-mail notification when somebody sends a PM to you.
