Forum Suggestions & User Assistance - Not recieving emails from subscribed threads
Bikeforums.net is a forum about nothing but bikes. Our community can help you find information about hard-to-find and localized information like bicycle tours, specialties like where in your area to have your recumbent bike serviced, or what are the best bicycle tires and seats for the activities you use your bike for.
Okay, I've checked all the boxes in my control panel that say that I want to recieve email notification when someone replies to one of my subscribed threads. Why am I still not recieving any emails? I'm sure it's just something simple I'm overlooking...
When you reply to a thread, go to the "Go Advanced" button below the Quick Message box. When you click on that, there should be an option below the box that says Thread subscription that appears with a dropdown box that says "Instant notification by email". If it's not selected, you can choose that in the drop down box. It does work, believe me- I get about 90 email notifications per day because I'm too lazy to deselect that option.
If you clicked on a Reply for a post, when the text box appears, you should see the Thread subscription box right away, and you can check the drop down box next to it to make sure the Instant email notification is selected.
Drop us a PM if you still can't get your notification.
Okay, thanks. I'll see if that works (it was selected, but maybe the "quick reply" doesn't work? I actually have to go to the long way to submit a reply).
Quick reply works as long as you click on the "Go Advanced" button below the reply box and then check to make sure the "Instant notification by email" is selected.
Well...that didn't work. Any other suggestions? :mad:

Do you get any emails from the forums?
I used to get the community update type emails and all the emails from my subscribed threads before you changed the website. Ever since, I don't get anything.

Velo: Check your subscriptions page: http://www.bikeforums.net/subscription.php?do=viewsubscription
Under "Subscription Type", what is sellected? Are all the threads listed there?
Do you use the quick reply, or advanced reply screen? I'll have to check and see if quickreply subscribes you by default. I know we had this same problem before the upgrade.

Ok, thanks... I wonder if it has somethign to do with having the "Receive Emails?" option turned off. That should be from users only, but it may be a bug in the software.
Try turning that on and see if it works. (http://www.bikeforums.net/profile.php?do=editoptions)
They all say "Instant notification by email". All the threads are there.
I used the quick reply, but even using the advanced reply with "instant notification by email" checked, I don't recieve them.
Alright, did it. I'll see if it works.

Hmm, what email application do you use? Are the emails being filtered?
I sent you an email via the forums, I know thoes work. Did you get it?
I use Outlook Express, and I don't have any emails being filtered. I didn't get your email.

Hmm, velo, do you have any other email addresses? I would like to test this. I dont know why its not working :(
Is anyone else having this problem?
No, sorry, I just have one email address.

*nod* I dont know why you dont get emails. How would you like a email@example.com email address? ;)
LoL, that's okay Joe. I really appreciate your help. I'll just try to remember to check up on the threads I respond to!
