E-Mail notifications stopped

My PM e-mail notifications stopped mid-way yesterday, I just checked and my settings are indicating they should be happening. I know of at least one other user this is happening too, is this a known issue?

I'm not getting any notifications either, neither PM nor Forum Management notifications. I thought it was my email client at first but it may be a board issue...

Yeah, it is happening to me too

 

And if Tiger has no idea, what hopes can we have?

It must be server side, you'll just have sit tight folks. I'll fire the Tank signal.

It has happened before and usually sorts itself out when the board completes daily back up / refresh.

This may be kinda sorta related, but is it 'normal' to not receive notifications to Topics others have Posted in?

I would say it depends on what your settings are. I only receive emails for PMs.

I Auto-Follow Topics I Post in. Thus it should give me Notifications. It's the GTA V Police Cars and Emergency Vehicles Topic that doesn't seem to work properly. However, when someone Likes a Post I Have Made, that works with no problem.

 

Now it could be that I was following it before the Forum Upgrade in 2013, and a setting wasn't "translated" across or something, I just don't know.

I never seem to have notification problems like some people describe. The only times are the odd occasion where it doesn't tell me a PM conversation has been updated.

 

@Phill, take a screenshot of all your notification options so we can check.

My untrained eye sees zero email notifications set up, my dear friend.

I'm referring to the Normal Forum Notifications (via the Portrait Icon next to the Envelop Icon), hence the 'Kinda Sorta' in my Original Post. :^:

Nothing wrong with your notification options by the looks of things, however it might just be server delay. I know people have notification problems regularly, perhaps it'll be something that'll be fixed in the next version.

 

However, you've got to give it chance. You have opted to know "immediately" when someone posts in a topic you follow, and you've got it to auto-follow every topic you post in, and you've made nearly 17 thousand posts.... This is a free community forum, not some big corporation, sometimes it might not handle as well as you demand :p It's not the end of the world is it? I think people forget what v1 was like.

Yes here too. The GTAF server went offline at 23.53 UTC and notifications are popping up in my email now that it is back up.

Tank has resolved the issue. Should be in all working order now :)

Bummer! First email notice was perfect, but now I no longer get the body of the PM in my email.

Depending on your client, notifications can be a bit weird for the first hour or so after outage.

Please do not PM staff regarding support issues - use The GTA Network Support Forum

Is it removed for good? That is half my reasons for getting mails. (The other half is to be notified when someone posts in a important thread so I can check it asap.)
