Notifications not working on Hotmail?
« on: February 22, 2014, 02:37:21 AM »
Some time after 4:15 PM EST yesterday (2/21), though possibly as late as midnight, I stopped getting e-mail notifications for both PMs and posts on my Hotmail account.  Hotmail itself is working fine for me, and no e-mails are going to Junk e-mail. 

Anyone else having trouble with notifications from the site?  Anyone else on Hotmail?

Notifications for the site are not working for me either. I'm on gmail.

Mine are working half and half. I'm getting some way after the post occurs. In other cases, from some topics, I'm not getting anything at all. Also on gmail.

Someone managed to enter an invalid email and it proceeded to eat the queue.

Should fix itself over time.

And I'm wondering if the unlucky people whose loads were bouncing on those mails were the reason for the slowdowns : /

Thank you for bringing this to my attention.

Thanks Veks, for the quick fix, and glad to have helped.

I just finally got a PM notification seven hours after the fact, and then three others for newer ones.  No post notifications yet, but hopefully they will arrive also.

I believe that I'm all caught up on notifications now, both PM and post. 

Thaks again Veks
