tFB Notifications

I used to get email notifications for any thread which I'd either started, or on which I'd commented, plus any thread I'd bookmarked.

Over the last couple of days all such notifications have stopped completely.  Other mail is still being delivered and they're not going to junk.

Are notifications still being sent out or has this stopped for some reason?

Apologies if I missed the thread announcing they were stopping/pausing for any reason.

Ta very big

Bit of trading feedback here.

    Are you using a Hotmail address?

    MS blanket block all notification emails from tFB's  address - they won't even appear in your junk.
    Having trouble posting images here?  This might help.

    I haven’t received any for about two years -out of the blue yesterday I received two or three. Must have been a glitch in the matrix.

    I'm getting all my notifications through now. Awesome stuff.

    OK, there was a change (we changed IP addresses) which seems to have led to Microsoft suddenly realising that we exist - that means Hotmail/Outlook/Live emails would've suddenly started working again.

    I have absolutely no idea why the OP's have suddenly stopped working, though - there's nothing in the logs suggesting any weirdness, so the emails are definitely not being explicitly blocked in a way that our outgoing mail server would know about it.

    @Haych - I'll try sending you some test emails, see if I can figure out why your mail server is reporting your email address as not existing.

    OK, it appears that the new IP address is on a couple of blocklists. I've submitted requests for removal...should be sorted in a couple of days.

    @digitalscream thanks bud, much appreciated.  Sorry if I caused any hassle for you.

    Not sure if you're still sending the test emails but nothing has come through yet.  I did get one notification on the What Films Have You Watched thread though.

    No, you haven't caused any hassle - better to know than not. I sent three or four test emails, all with different (and progressively less helpful) messages.

    However, it'd be great if you could let me know if/when emails start coming through.

    Notification emails have started to come through but no emails from yourself yet. 

    Hope that helps.

    Likewise, notifications have started again for me after a lengthy layoff.

    Can't get on the site unless I'm on WiFi. Been like that for a while.

    OK, that's interesting. Well, let's keep an eye on it - you won't get the test emails (at least, all but one of them) because they were straight-up rejected. Maybe check your spam for one of them, though - that seemed to go through.

    Quite a few people suffer with 3 not letting fb traffic through.

    OK, well...it was just a test email, not too much of a problem. If the real notifications are coming in, that's what really matters.

    Yeah, this. It's specific to 3's network (more specifically, something funky they're doing with the SSL certificate when they intercept it to do their content filtering, which they won't admit is on all the time), and they refuse to acknowledge that they're the problem.

    No worries Lee. It helps create some natural downtime anyway...  :)

    I’m on 3 at the moment, and have been - off & on - through the years, without noticing any problems?
