Re: Subscription Service...

ok...

I ran a test email message (See Below)

---------------------------
You are receiving this email because your email address was entered as an email test at the Alfa Romeo Forum.
The email features on your server are setup correctly.

---------------------------

So I then decided to subscribe to a thread, and posted to the same thread with a test user login, I then received this email instantly:

Dear alfaowner,

Test Username has just replied to a thread you have subscribed to entitled - Breaking V6 Alfa 75 - in the Parts/Accessories 4 Sale forum of Alfa Romeo Forum.

This thread is located at:
http://www.alfaowner.com/Forum/parts...-new-post.html

You will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.

All the best,
Alfa Romeo Forum

Re: Subscription Service...

Ok, been looking into this quite a bit and found the fault, just finding a fix, this should be working again soon.

I just hope that the system hasnt queued the last two weeks worth of subscription emails. EEK - lol

Re: Subscription Service...

The server can barely keep the site on line emails are probably just asking far too much of them

I don't get mail notifications either. Tried changing my settings under my profile but it's made no difference.

Re: Subscription Service...

Im nearly out of ideas, I just cannot find anythig wrong, I am wondering if we are blacklisted with any ISP's???? Doubt it as we rarely send out email to members other than automated subscriptions etc... and I get mine okay. I will keep on trying

Easy to check if the alfa forum domain is listed on any of the well known black lists. Also, if there is some problem of getting blacklisted we should see some pattern in those not getting the mails, I'm with Tiscali (lineone.net). Which ISP (or webmail) are you other guys using?

Re: Subscription Service...

Checked on a few of the well known RBL's and the forum domain is not listed so I don't think that is the issue. Is there any email filtering of any kind on the outgoing mail, maybe by the ISP?

Thank you for checking...

Well I know the emails are generated but not actually received? They must be piling up somewhere. Ive checked the mail queue. Can anyone explain a mail spool to me?

Cheers in advance.

Re: Subscription Service...

What OS is the server running? Windows, solaris? Is it running exchange or sendmail or something else for mail progarm?

Mail spool is the area the mail will sitting waiting for collection by users.

Wow, thanks for trying... According to VB (Software company) we have verified and checked everything that we can, all is fine, therefore I has escalated this to our host as it appears it may be their system. It is almost out of our hands time wise. Will keep you all updated though.

Regards,

Ian Bowles

Re: Subscription Service...

ok, can somebody subscribe to this thread for me, use instant notification, I will then post to this same thread and all you need to do is let me know that you recieved an instant email notifiying you of my post.

I have changed things a little and need a helper to test this for me and confirm in this thread what you did/saw.

Many thanks in advance.
