I subscribed to something and should get email notifications but they aren't coming through. I'm pretty sure they're not getting filtered on my side. Is this feature working properly for everyone else?

Nope, not working for me either.

Hmm, wonder if I missed copying a cron job from the old server to the new one....

I didn't find that a cron job is needed.

I did find this option enabled in the settings:
Smart Notification:
Enable 'smart' e-mail notification mechanism that would only notify users if they read previous notification. This prevents filling up of the user's mailbox with notifications if they are not reading them.


I've set the above to disabled, and found a different setting:
All Message Forum Notification:
If enabled, subscribers to a forum will receive notifications about every new message in the forum, rather then just new topics in the forum.


This one was previously disabled, and it is now enabled.

Please let me know if this fixes the issue.

I've been auto-subscribed to a few threads when I recently replied + I have always been subscribed to new threads in certain forums.
I'll let you know when I get an update reply.

Thanks for the trouble-shooting Ron.

edit - Do we need to make any changes to our control panel settings?

This has fixed it for me. I tend to type in the URL for SAH myself rather than click the link and I don't tend to view my control panel when I log in... Perhaps that's why.

Thanks, Ron. No more missed games.

Can the update email also have the post contents added?

Ok, that option is now on, but not sure I like it. We'll see how it goes.

That is definitely why it was not working for you. Only by clicking the link could the forum software know that you had actually read the notification it sent out, since the Smart option was enabled at that time. Since you didn't click the link, it thought you had not read the notification and thus would not send you any more to prevent in-box flooding.

The message is sent in HTML, with what that entails in terms of colours and background.

That might be a little much.

Interesting... I would not have thought that it would keep background or colors.
