I checked why I don't receive notifications, which I did at some time in the swirling past. My account is set to send notifications to a server at one of my publishers that I haven't used for several years. Worth checking, maybe.

Okay I've just ticked the notify box for this thread, and I'm not on gmail.

So if someone else posts I should get a notification.

Do your worst! (Remembering it's nearly bedtime where I am so even if I am notified it might be many hours before I notice my notification.)

Okay I'm not on Gmail and I got my notification overnight here no problem.

Not surprisingly people using google emails don't get any email, including direct emails sent to them or notifications about messages, see: http://thorncyclesforum.co.uk/index.php?topic=14884.30

Even more annoying is that not only they don't get the message sent in email, but it's totally lost, 'cause it's not even in the messages IMHO.

Flocsy,

I am in-process, working on this as promised; email with details sent to you through the Forum via my own Gmail account. The problem is rather more complex than first seemed and relates to a change in Gmail's accepted mail protocols and our server settings that affects all notifications. Updates ASAP. I appreciate you letting me know about the problem is it is the first notice I received about it.

In the meantime, looking up the member profile as usual and then clicking in their email should invoke your own mail handler to then compose a deliverable message. If it does not (Cc yourself to make sure it is getting through), then a cut-and-paste of the member's email into your mail app will work regardless of mail client...a crude but still somewhat fungible workaround in the meantime.

With best regards, Dan.

Continued working in tandem with Thorn's IT department on the issue, so your reports are helpful. Thanks!

Please let me know if notifications suddenly _do_ work for you so we know if we've hit the right combo.

Best, Dan.
