Seem to be down again, or it least very delayed.

This is related to our network issues. It should be resolved shortly.

Resolved with a vengeance!

Yesterday, I was sporadically getting all of my old email notifications from Thursday, Friday, and Saturday.

This morning, I wake up with 500 new emails from DVDTalk.

Yeah... sorry about that. Everything should be back up and running, but emails may still trickle in for the next couple of days.

Re: Email notification not working

No biggie, but the email notifications are still a bit off. Seem to be getting a lot more than necessary. Like maybe it's not remembering that I'm logged in, and sending me an email for each and every reply.

Re: Email notification not working

Again, no biggie, but figured I'd be thorough.

Still getting way too many email notifications, including messages that I read in the threads hours or even a day previously. All the rest of my email seems to be fine, so it's not a Yahoo problem.

Anyone else having issues?

Re: Email notification not working

There had been some serious delay issues since that 11/15 post, both here and HDD, but they seem to be down to about 15-20 minutes delay today.

Re: Email notification not working

Will the fix for the ongoing delays, today seems worse than yesterday by quite a bit, have to wait until next week at the earliest?

Re: Email notification not working

It's running about 35-40 minutes behind. What's the point of the feature?

The delay isn't a big problem, there is always a variable delay. The current problem, which seems to be pretty much gone now, was getting multiple notifications of the same thread, sometimes days old.

I can't imagine the forum without it. I pretty much do everything on the forum through my email notifications.

Re: Email notification not working

Yeah, so do I. I've just been used to them being instant. Delay makes no sense if they're for each and every post made to my subscribed threads. It's not cutting down on emails sent or anything, they're just arbitrarily delayed. Whatevs...

I didn't get one for about 15 hours (I never go more than an hour without at least a few), but it's working fine now.

Re: Email notification not working

I'm getting my emails ok. Someone is probably sneaking onto your computer and deleting them.
