    Hey @Joeychgo - I'm not getting email notifications when new posts appear on topics I've posted on.

    I've not changed any preferences, so do you have any ideas?

    Thanks,

    Ross.

    Same issue with me. Nothing in spam folder. Bug.

    Server shows a number of emails sent to you yesterday - and were accepted by your email provider. Problem is on your end somewhere

    Nope, nothing. I check every day as a matter of course.

    I even went today and reset my notifications settings... still nothing - didn't even know you'd replied to this, until I searched for it.

    It looks like your email provider is blocking our emails as spam - You should whitelist admin@forcbodiesonly.com

    How do I do that, and why would hotmail suddenly change that?

    Well that just answered my question to why I haven't seen notifications. As I too have Hotmail. So the plot thickens.

    @Joeychgo - so it ain't just me... perhaps more digging from your end is required. Sorry to put this on you!

    I actually don't care about getting Evey notification. But for reference the last email I received was March 31st. So what changed on April 1st?

    Same here the C-bodies are going to spam, B-bodies are ok. I kind of be living with it but I don’t do a lot here. I’ll check into fixing my settings, meaning my wife will.

    Im doing what I can, but ultimately its up to hotmail.

    Try this

    Manually Add the Sender to Your Safe List
    If an existing email from the sender hasn't already been trapped in your junk folder, you can manually add him to your Safe List.

    • Click on "Options" in the upper right corner of your Hotmail screen.
    • Then click the link for "Safe and Blocked Senders" in the body of the page under Junk e-mail.
    • Click the "Safe Senders" link and enter the email address you want to whitelist. (admin@forcbodiesonly.com)
    • Click "Add" to put it on your list.

    FWIW, I can confirm that even after whitelisting notification emails are not getting through to my hotmail

    Hey @Joeychgo - I just wanted to let you know that I received an email notification (hotmail) of a new post in a thread today.

    Hooray!
