Instant E-Mail Notification?

For the past several days I have not received one e-mail notification from BF on threads that I have started or are subscribed to. I checked my user profile and everything there seems to be okay...no changes were made. Has anyone else noticed this or is it just me?

I've always found it unreliable. I'm subbed to a few threads and am seeing the same problems as you - I have to manually check everything as the notifications don't seem to be working.

Check the option to automatically subscribe to threads in which you have posted. Then all you have to do is click on "control panel" to see if any of those threads have new posts - they will appear obvious when the control panel comes up.

Other BF members seem to be having the same problem.

Works for me.

Perhaps it has to do with how your software handles cookies, or your level of security?

It's been working perfectly for six months. Just the last few days have been a problem.
