Default Not getting e-mail notifications

For a while, I was getting all of the e-mail notifications from the threads I had subscribed to in Photocamel.

Lately (couple of months?) I have not gotten any of the notifications.
I haven't changed my e-mail address. I haven't changed my notification status in the control panel.

What am I missing? Here is a capture of the notification just to show you.

A photograph is like a joke. If you have to explain it, it just isn't that good.

Oh, and forgive me if I don't reply to this right away, as uh, I'm not getting my notifications.

Change it to another one of the settings like daily save it. Leave it like that for a day or 2. then back to instant.

I actually just turned my to daily as I was getting way too many emails

Is it possible that your email address may have been down for a short time and when photocamel sent out a notify it got a bounce back and then removed you from the notify.

I know with some servers that send out email if they get a bounce message your address gets but into a do not email to this address anymore.

This actually happen to be on another service that sends out emails , they said that your address was invalid and hence I got deleted.

Also if you have any other email addresses you can use , change photo camel address to one those to see if it again starts sending.

Well, a couple of months ago we had some issues with some email providers blocking the instant notifications. When an email provider deems the notifications a hassle, they simple block us as a spam site. We then have to contact them personally to explain to them who we are and what we are doing....

I wasn't getting the notifications either. Until I added "admin@photocamel.com" to my address book now it works just fine.

Okay,
So I changed the notification to Daily and saved it.
I also added "admin@photocamel.com" as a contact in my address book.
I also double-checked my list of spam blocks to make sure I didn't click on a Photocamel note by mistake (I hadn't).
If those don't work, I'll switch to another e-mail address, and see if that helps.

Thanks for the input folks.

Well folks,

Thanks for all of your help. I don't know if it was adding admin@photocamel.com to my address list, or changing from immediate to daily, or if it was Mr. Pickles giving Yahoo a kick in the you know what. But I am now getting my notices again.

Thanks!

I'm having the same problem. I just verified that none of them are going to my spam folder, so I'll try setting it to daily logs for a while.

Currently Photocamel is not on any BLACKLISTS so issue may be related to something else

Which brings up another stupid question....is there a way to change my notifications to daily on all subscribed threads, or does it have to be done one thread at a time?
