Is it just me? I have been getting absolutely no email notifications for a few months now. Nothing when my TVs are updated, nothing when I receive a message. I must admit I am lazy and mostly used to check this site when something happened - I got a message or a TV I was watching was updated. But now I don't get those and it can be a week or 2 before I log in, and by then the people who sent me the messages are probably getting a bit annoyed.

I have the check box clicked for email notifications for both of these things. My email address listed in my settings is correct. Any idea why I might not be getting the emails?

Did you send a message to Neil? I think, that's the one, who possibly finds the answer for your problem.

I'm glad I'm not the only one. Makes me feel a little less insane!

I did change to the new layout around the time I started having troubles. I've just changed back to the classic so we'll see how I go now.

I also have this problem since I've changed my mailbox. At first it was rather inconvenient, but now I'm used to check my messenger here several times a day, so it's OK :)

We seem to get this issue with hotmail from time to time - certain email servers seem to block our notification emails as though they are spam.

The last time this came up we changed the Messenger notifications so that they include the actual message, and it seemed to then allow them through their filtering system. Even hotmail accounts received the emails!

I think we may need to do something similar with the Travelog updates, so that it's not the same thing in each email. Then they should get through. Is anybody still receiving emails? Or is this a global problem?

Let me know what works and what doesn't. Don't write your actual email address in this forum, but please can say 'I went from yahoo to hotmail and it stopped working'. Or 'mine works fine for lycos'. It will help to narrow it down a bit.

Sorry for any inconvenience this is causing anybody

My works fine for gmail as I had updates. Although I don't have pm's sent to my email since I check all the time but it seems I have missed a few updates on a few of my toyvoyagers... but I did get notifications today...

I didn't change my email, I still have Hotmail, but the notifications just stopped coming one day. This was the same day my pm-outbox still marked some pm's as unread, while I knew they were read because I'd already gotten responses to them!

I don't know what caused this last problem but as for notifications, I had the same problem at Postcrossing, just out of the blue I stopped receiving notifications, so I went to Gmail for this. Maybe I could try changing the emailadress for ToyVoyagers to this Gmail-account also.

I guess my only option would be to change my email address in Toyvoyagers then? Because I have always used my Hotmail account and previously received emails regularly from the site. I have no idea why I suddenly stopped receiving them. I didn't change anything (other than going to the new format, which I have now changed back and that hasn't done anything).

Thanks for looking into it for me...

Hi all,

Anyone want to help with an experiment?

If you are using hotmail for your toyvoyagers email, can you try changing it to something else (such as gmail or yahoo?). Hotmail seem to block our notifications from time to time, it would be good to know if you still receive them at another address.

Let me know what happens,

Kind regards,

Neil

I sometimes get notifications but they are days and/or weeks after someone makes an update or sends me a PM. It's very rare that I get a notification on the day someone makes and update to one of my TV's.

I'm using a road runner email, not hotmail, etc.

I have now changed to my big pond email address (first time I've opened it in 2 months! Big pond had sent quite a few emails! LOL).

Can someone send me a message?
