Hi,

several topics here I've set the notification option for. However, the last days I didn't obtain a single e-mail notificiation, although there have been replies in these topics.
Is there a problem with this function, currently?
Or do I've to fire my e-mail account's administrator? :)

Thanks and greetings.

It seems to be working for me.. maybe a SPAM filter problem?

Well, now I got an E-Mail saying there's a reply (yours).
Unfortunately for many topics during the last days I didn't obtain a notifaction.
I don't think it's a spam filter (because I didn't turned any on), but maybe something's wrong.

Well, I'll see... :-)

Thanks for the reply.

I hate to "me too", but I too have been not getting emails from JGO recently. I'd assumed it was a problem with my ISP; perhaps it is just co-incidence that both of us had this problem Smiley.

Oh well. I've checked my account, my e-mail client, etc, but all look to be fine.

Still I hardly obtain e-mail notifications from the topics I've subscribed to. I notice it when I look at the "View the 10 most recent posts of this forum. " (*)  Just 10% of the notifications which should arrive here do actually reach my mailbox.
There's something wrong, however I can't tell what.

For example, I didn't get a notifcation that you replied. However I obtained one yesterday that Swpalmer replied. Really strange.
And so on. Since I also subscribed to other mailing lists and they work fine, I think the e-mails don't reach my ISP's mailbox.
Maybe they're filtered on their way from U.S.A. to the "old" Europe? But why could Mr. Bush not want me to do OpenGL in Java...? :-)  Just kidding.

Did I mention that I hate lost e-mails? The best thing is: most of them you'll never know of... ;-)


(*) I'd love to see that in a way like: "View the 100 most recent posts of this forum."...

Maybe topic reply emails are only sent out once a day (or some other period) and if you actually come to the site and read the topic before the notification is sent then the notification is cancelled?  A total guess... but computers aren't noted for doing things randomly - unless you ask Wink, so there must be some explanation.

Well, sounds as strange as the topic is (for me)... :-)

Interestingly I obtained a notifaction that you replied to this topic. I didn't obtain one when "Blablah" replied. So the notification does work sometimes. Obviously it depends on who replies to a topic...

IME, the emails go out throughout the day (or perhaps that was how it USED to work, before SunONE ?).

However, what is certain is that I didn't receive ANY notifications of either of your posts to this topic in tha last 12 hours Sad.

Yes, that's the strange point! I dont't receive any notification of your posts here, however of Swpalmer's I do. I think I've to rethink about Swpalmer's mentioned computer law: "but computers aren't noted for doing things randomly - unless you ask"
:-)

Without kidding: how could we solve this problem? In which way could the Administrator of this forum help us, if it's possible?

We need to do some experiments, try to reduce the variables in the equation, etc.
It seems that when I post a message here, the notification has always been sent is that correct?
Yet when Blah... posted there was no notification.  And as I understand it Blah has never received a notification from this topic, right?
We will see how consistent it is.  Will you get a  notification of this reply?

Yes, this is correct.
I get notifications when you reply to this topic, but I do not get one when Blablah replies to this topic.

Maybe you only get notification when someone of importance replies then Wink

LOL.

Anyway, I'm still not receiving ANY emails for this topic. I am always receiving emails for:

- Extremely poor performance with NIO (which I started)
- JRE download size
- ...and one or two others

It seems there a lot which I never receive emails for Sad. I'll try and keep track of which do and which don't.

Hi,

do you (Blablah) still loose many email notifcations?

I do. A look at the current topics and my subscribed ones tell me that about 50-75% of the notifactions don't reach me. :-(
So... reading from and writing to this nice forum is not nice at all for me. I miss many discussions.

Web forums suck. In particular when they're so uncomfortable to use like YaBB. Etc. Usenet is nice.

Sigh.

You know you don't get a notification for your own posts right?

Chuckle. I kinda noticed during the last 300 times or so, yes Wink.

As it happens, all posts within the last 24 hours or so have actually been notified to me (from topics which hadn't been notifying before!) - although the notifications were arriving a little late so I didn't notice them when I last posted.

INCLUDING this topic, which I wasn't getting notifications from before...

Perhaps this got fixed sometime yesterday? I can only hope... Wink Wink

Agreed; the last few days the situation has improved, however it's still not 100%. Sometimes the emails arrive very late, sometimes they don't arrive at all.

Sigh.

Is there a snail mail notification possibility, maybe? :)
