I don't get email notifications to threads I'm "following" or which I started. I think I have all the settings right, and I feel like I used to get them sometimes.

If someone could let me know the email address they come from I could make sure it's whitelisted with my ISP... otherwise I wonder if I'm just missing something simple.

when you post to a thread (click preview if using quick-reply) check to see if "Notify me of replies" is ticked (see below) by default. It should be with your settings.
(Either way this still a problem for mouser & co).

If I click the "notify" link in the blue bar at bottom right, I get a message "Are you sure you wish to disable notification of new replies for this topic?"

So I presume the forum knows I'm supposed to get them. And the "Notify me of replies" box is ticked as I type this.

Just to check, can someone tell me the "from" address for a donationcoder forum notification email?

Thanks

I just got a notification from you, tomos. I had just whitelisted the address cranioscopical provided (I use SpamAssassin through bluehost). So probably that was the problem.

I have SpamAssassin set to automatically delete. One of the perils of having my real email address all over the whois registry is spam volume.

Thanks,
Eric
