No longer receiving email notifications

Post by backwoodsman » Wed Dec 18, 2019 11:46 am

The forum has stopped sending me email notifications of replies, etc. I'm not sure exactly when it started, but it's been some time, probably at least 6 months ago. It still has my correct email address. Is anyone else having this problem?

I think I found the problem. Checking the forum's error log, it looks like there's a misconfiguration in the forum's email sending settings that's causing emails to be rejected by the SMTP server. With my very limited admin access, that's about all I can see. So, since this post got no response, I'm going to guess maybe no one is getting any email from the forum.

Jarrod, is there any chance this might be fixed at some point? It would be a huge help to have email notifications again. I occasionally forget to check here for days or even weeks at a time, and come back to find something that's waited way too long for a response. If that happens to others too, it could be a big part of why there's so much less activity here than in the past.
