Is anyone else not getting email notifications with subscribed threads or private messages? I checked all my spam/junk folders and verified my settings here but haven't received one for a couple months.

A couple of members have reported the same problem in the last few months.  The common thread always seemed to be that the "lost" emails were going to a hotmail account.  I have my forum emails going to a gmail account and I haven't missed any.  It seems that hotmail is a little more discerning when it comes to the specifics of the server that the email is coming from.

I've poked around various different configuration options but it appears that because we're running our own mail server we may just have to live with the problem.  Can you try pointing your forum account to another email address?  If that doesn't solve anything post up here and we can try to figure something else out.

Strange, not using hotmail but I'll try setting up my profile with a different account to test.

I setup a forward for on my gmail account to forward admin@westernsubaruclub.com messages and set it as my email address in my profile. Could someone send me a test pm?
