    Hi there technical staff,

    I have just noticed that I am no longer receiving email
    notifications of replies to my subscribed threads.

    Am I an isolated sufferer or is the situation general?

    Hi,

    I have not received any other reports re: this issue.

    We did recently migrate the site to a new server, and there were some site outages due to some misconfigurations of the new server.

    I am going to subscribe to this thread, and we'll see if I receive an email response when you reply.

    Thanks!
    Regards, R.J.

    I just did a test here, and messages from this site are being rejected at my server due to a lack of a working PTR record for the domain. That could be why @coothead isn't getting them.

    That's an easy flub to make when migrating domains to a new server.

    I didn't get an email notification when @deathshadow posted to this thread, so something seems to be amiss.

    I have contacted the hosting company about the issue, and mentioned the PTR record suggestion as well.

    I'll update you guys here when I know more.
    Regards, R.J.

    Hi guys,

    Apologies for the delay.

    We have updated the SMTP configuration on the server and corresponding DNS entry.

    Can anyone please confirm whether or not you are receiving email notifications for subscribed posts, private messages, etc.?

    Thanks!
    Regards, R.J.

    I am still not receiving notifications. I should have received one regarding my Conference Room thread but did not.

    I think we finally fixed the email issue.

    We needed to adjust the SMTP config in vBulletin itself. I was able to run a test in the admin control panel to check if email is working, and it worked.

    Can you please let me know whether or not you are now able to receive email notifications for subscribed posts, private messages, etc.?

    Thanks.
    Regards, R.J.

    Does that mean I should have received an email notification for this thread, because I did not.

    I just got an email, too. Therefore, I conclude that it works.
