    Hi,

    saw the other thread concerning this topic but I have another problem (it is not only me).
    I do not receive any mail notification. I tried different mail addresses and checked the spam folders of the accounts.
    I am not getting notified neither when using the "forgotten password" function nor when using the "notify me when I receive a PM" (instant notification activated). A buddy of mine has the same problems.
    Did we overlook something?

    Thanks a bunch
    Nils

    Hello :)

    Same problem.

    I received several emails some minutes ago, it's about answer of 3 days ago.
    I looked for the best forum-place to explain this problem and I saw your message :)

    Nevertheless I also activated the "instant notification".
    I noticed this problem for approximately 15 days, I thought that it was a temporary problem thus I had said nothing previously ;)

    Alek.

    LOL Bram. you and I went a loooong way on this back when. No joy my man. YOu had said that COMCAST was troublesome for some reason.

    I have selected instant e-mail notification and use the saem addy I Have had for years now.

    Dunno why it doesn't work, and honestly, doesn't matter anymore for me I have become used to just checking in periodically.

    EDIT; looked in my list of subscriptions and see that NONE of them have a check mark in the "instant notifcation" box. hhhmmmmm

    When I checked my options control in USER CP I found "instant notification " selected. The text says I can set up 'Automatically subscribing" to any thread I view but can;t find where to check that option.

    can ya point a brother to the spot please?
