Recently, I noticed I'm no longer receiving email notifications of new posts, nor of posts in which I have posted. My settings are still set to receive notifications. "Auto follow topics I reply to. Notification frequency" is check marked. I hadn't made any changes in settings to stop notifications.

 

In the last topic in which I posted, I checked the box to follow the topic and receive instant notification. However, I did not receive an email.

 

Nothing from this forum went to my spam folder in Gmail.

 

Has anyone else noticed this?

To update, July 16 is the last time I received an email in my Gmail inbox. That's about the time you were checking into the spammy posting problem. Has the spam mail ceased? I used to get those emails, too, and now I don't. Not that I'm complaining that I'd like to get those!

And why doesn't my profile picture appear on posts? I see other profile pictures (Firefox and Chrome).

My email notifications may also have stopped but I am unsure as gmail appears to have started treating them as spam. My spam folder has some between June 30 and July 10. Up to sometime before June 30, I received notifications pretty reliably in my inbox. As we both use gmail, perhaps it is the culprit, not the forums server.

 

Edit: just checked my Gmail Trash folder and see that my last notification was July 15, about the same cutoff as your last one.

We had to change mail servers and forgot to flip the switch on the forums. It should start working now.

That remains a mystery. I see your profile picture but it does not appear with your posts.

Thanks for the quick fix, I received an email notification now. Hope the mystery of the profile photo can be resolved.
