Can anyone tell me why I'm no longer receiving notifications of messages?
I have bought a new Acer computer and all other functions are very normal. I'm also using Vista. Someone please help!

Do you mean notification of private messages, or of subscribed thread posts?

Someone else mentioned this in another thread, so we may have a mail server problem.

Yeah, I get nothing for PMs anymore.


27-02-2009 16:31:00

Me neither.

I don't see anything obviously wrong. Filesystem has space, logs don't indicate a problem that I can see. In the interest of time I may just reboot the box and hope it clears up.

David, did you check Snopes for the answer?

lol I thought something along those lines when I first read this. Brilliant minds, and all that...

EDIT btw I think I figured out the problem, but it's looking like I might need Admin's help to fix it. Please bear with us.

Fixed. DNS was busted on the FiPG server. I just happened to figure that out while hacking the mailer code to use an external SMTP server, which turned out to be unnecessary.

I received a couple messages, then last night I was back to square 1 again. I got 2 private messages for trades and I wasn't notified!

Still works for me, I just got one. Not sure why you didn't but everything looks kosher on the server this time.
