No longer getting email when a reply is posted

Postby Jim of Seattle » Thu Feb 02, 2012 2:47 pm

This has always worked for me, but now I'm not getting notified by email when a reply is posted on a thread I'm following. I didn't change my email address (I checked) and no, I wasn't having them sent to my now defunct Microsoft email (I checked that too). Anyone know what's up with that?

(I have to remember to check here for a reply, because, well, that's the whole issue, so my responses may be delayed.)
Is there any reason you haven't bought my album yet? "We Are All Famous", on iTunes, CD Baby, and Green Monkey Records. Also available in unlimited edition "free" version:
Yes! I want to hear Jim's album without paying for it!

Check your spam filter? Or maybe you have some old inbox rule that's doing something weird?

Also sometimes Dreamhost has problems sending to some ISPs mostly because some ISPs are all "hurr we get a lot of spam from there so let's just throw out the baby with the bathwater."

This morning I received ten emails in the space of a few hours telling me there were replies on the boards, mostly repeats for just the two threads I'm participating in. Don't know what this means, maybe it means it's all working right again, but wanted to pass it along. Something's wonky.

Sometimes Dreamhost's outgoing mail server gets jammed up too. They serve a LOT of mail and their infrastructure can't really handle it.
