I haven't received any since this morning. Still getting bugzilla email, though.

Am I the only one no longer receiving these notifications?

Do you mean forum updates sent through the mailing list (eg
discuss (AT) lists (DOT) slimdevices.com)? If so I only look at the forums via the
mailing list in my email client and it's working fine for me.

Maybe related, maybe not...

I noticed that attaching pictures to a post do not seem to work:
SN-alarms-disappear.JPG:
This is not a valid image file.
SN-alarms-disappear.PNG:
This is not a valid image file.

These definitely ARE valid image files.

Last weekend and last week I tried from two different places to upload an Avatar, and it gave me an "incorrect file" error each time. Again, tried with different filetypes, different resolutions, within requirements.

I'd just like to hear whether any _else_ is receiving the notifications. Yes? No? If so, I'll look at whether something is going on with my email server.

I've just turned notifications on, so i'll let you know if I start to get them or not.

Well I just got one through for this thread: http://forums.slimdevices.com/showthread.php?t=63013

This is going to sound like Tech Support 101, but have you tried turning them off, saving settings, then turning them back on?

I've heard of vB forums getting confused and needing a little nudge to get some settings reacting as they should

Thanks, I'll give it a try.

Looks like the forums' email server at 74.201.85.73 is on at least one black list.

Look slike this needs to be dealt with.

NOt sure who to PM/email to make sure they see it. You could report this thread as spam, that usually gets their attention. :)

Yeah, does anyone know who's in charge of administering the forums these days?

There was indeed a problem with our reverse DNS, as well as a few of our servers having the wrong php.ini settings for how to send mail. Those have been fixed. Messages should be going out now.

Yep, it's working again. Thanks, Matt.
