Problems with PM notifications or all notifications?
« on: February 06, 2015, 02:30:33 PM »
I'm not receiving some of the PM notifications, usually the long PMs.  PMs you can keep track of from the Inbox but now I'm wondering what else I might be missing.

As in notifications through e-mail that you've received a PM? Because if so, I've been having the same issue since last night, and I thought it was just my phone being whacky because I have two different g-mail accounts set up on it. But my other notifications aren't coming through either.

Yep!  They are longer ones.  The ones with only a few lines have no problem.

Thinking back on it, you're right. PM's with only a couple of lines I get notifications for, but anything longer than that and no notification. And definitely no notification for a thread that I've set to notify.

I blame it on the snow.  :D

Ket, did you go in and set the notification parameters in your profile as well? They were all set to default off a while back. They need to be reset in your profile again.

I can't answer about the PM part, but that might be why you aren't getting forum notifications.

I did. Everything was working fine until sometime yesterday. And I still get notifications of really short PMs, but anything over a few sentences, nothing.

Like I said, I blame it on the snow. Trust me, there is enough here to blame all the world's problems on.

If you look at the PMs that haven't given you notifications, is there anything other than plain text in them?  Links, images, international characters, etc, or are they simply long?  I'm vaguely remembering something like this happening before to someone.

Like I said, they are long.  There are no links to anything.  In fact, those that had links were a problem before but they aren't now.  Some that had quotes were a problem before but they aren't now.  In fact, I've been receiving PMs from this person for years and they've always been long - and - when there was a problem before the notification would come but the text would be missing.

Now, the email doesn't arrive in the Inbox at all.  However, as with many other things on this site something has changed or been changed and some notifications (not PM ones) are going to my Spam folder.  The most amazing thing is that while notifications for some threads are going to Spam other notifications for the same threads are going to the Inbox so it can't be me, something I did or something in my profile as has been suggested about it being my fault at other times.

I'll be marking the notifications in Spam as Not Spam but if E is routing the notifications there is nothing else I can do but - I suppose - learn to live with it as I have with several other things here.

And again a long PM from my friend showed up in spam.  And there are no links or images or anything in it except words - lots and lots of words.

Maybe it's a ploy to discourage people who want to use PMs for role playing.

BTW - Another PM was sent at the same time by the same person and contained a video.  That arrived in my Inbox.

So, one PM notification to spam and one to the Inbox.

Did you move it out of the spam folder, into the inbox? Or mark it as not spam?

When you mark gmail as not spam it moves out of the spam folder as part of the process.

I'm doing what needs done and if that isn't fixing E's problem there is nothing I can do about that.

Google is probably thinking it's smarter than you again.

Keep on hitting 'not spam' on it, and it will eventually wise up.

Make sure our e-mail is in your contacts list, etc.

Likely what is happening is certain phrases are getting flagged and making teh Google suspicious.

I accidentally opened one of the Elliquiy messages in my spam folder.  Found this message in it.

Quote
Why is this message in Spam? It has a from address in elliquiy.com but has failed elliquiy.com's required tests for authentication.

The message goes away when the email is labeled Not Spam.

*sighs*  It's still a problem.  I get between 15 and 20 messages sent to spam every day. 

Some are notifications for new threads.

Some are the PMs from my friend that are really long:  one that comes every day, one that comes every Monday thru Friday.

Some are Topic Replies:  not always the same topics and sometimes one message out of man will go to spam while everything else goes to the Inbox. 

I've been clicking the Not Spam button (I have gmail) but sometimes I click the Delete Forever button by mistake.  It's tiresome but it looks like I'm stuck with it forever.

Just to make sure all the T's are crossed, you do have webmaster@elliquiy.com listed in your contacts? Not just elliquiy.com?

I do.  All of the spam messages are ticked for that. 

gmail runs conversations with 61 messages from the same source and I've received a few for one thread in spam and all the rest in the Inbox.  How does one out of 61 look like spam while the others don't?

Wait... you mean to say that PM notifications are working? I haven't been receiving those for months....
Yahoo mail that is...


Two problems - my mail was full.
And Yahoo discontinued the email notifications. Wtf... :( Super stupid from their side.
