Notification Problems

Recommended Posts

Email notifications aren't working. We're still trying to diagnose the cause and fix it. I'll keep you posted.

Hitting the ‘reply to topic’ sometimes goes to blank white screen over and over again

EDIT. sorry, never mind, it’s way down at bottom of page. I didn’t scroll far enough

Good luck.  IT problems are never easy to fix. Maybe after you find the solution you could share it with the FSM IT staff. I have not received notifications from their website in over a year.

Obviously no solution to the email notification problem.  Sure hope the fix happens soon.

Update: The short story is that the mail program on our server is down. The hosting company is still working on problem. It's been escalated, and should get some high-powered attention tomorrow. .

Sure hope it works.  I'm kind of lost trying to navigate through the menu system in place.

Yes, being patient. They are aware of the issue and have been trying to fix it. Repeating the same old thing isn't benefitting anyone in any way. Dave has been very good with providing updates and keeping us in the loop with what's happening, so when it's fixed, he'll let everyone know.

I've been getting updates for a few days. The type of failure we had might have gotten us marked as a spammer, and consigned you your junk folder, or perhaps blocked altogether. Sometimes this designation takes a while to reset. We know that AOL is blocking our emails. There may be others.

I continue to get notifications from this forum without a problem.. There is a similar notification problem on the FSM website. I stopped getting notifications from that forum about a year ago. There are other members that continue to get notifications without a problem.

Darn. I'm an AOL person.  Why are they blocking MCM emails?

Same here! I get nothing from this board. Same for a stamp collecting forum I’m on.  There I changed my email over to my gmail account.

OK......any way to turn off email notifications? I'd really rather not receive them.

Thanks. We still have some more work to do in this area. I’ve tapped into some outside expertise to make sure we get it done right.

That is odd.  Several showed up in my Yahoo mail over the last couple of days.  They were out of order and delayed by few days (they were probably sitting on the forum's server, but I got them (and in my Inbox, not Spam).

Go to your account and look for Other Settings. Then click on Notification Settings. You can then modify a number of different settings.
