Default Poll:How many of you ARE or ARE NOT receiving email notifications from PTO?

If you have your email notifications turned on (it defaults to ON when you register) for replies to your posts, new private messages, etc., are you receiving email notifications from PTO or not?

Please select one of the 3 options, depending on how it applies to you.

It has become clear that some ISP's have blacklisted our site's IP address by reports we have received after new members have registered but not received a confirmation email.

I'm trying to determine just how extensive this may be by polling existing members that might be affected by this.

Thanks!
David

UPDATE: For some reason I am unable to see member names who voted in the poll. IF you voted that you ARE NOT receiving notification emails from PTO, but want them, please make a short (or long) post in this thread saying that you are not so I can look into it further. Thanks!

IF you have posted that you are not receiving them, please also post in this thread. For some reason, I am unable to see who is voting in the poll...? I need to know who to get into contact with after the upgrades to make sure they are fixed.

Thanks!

Thanks for letting me know. Would you mind telling me who your Internet Service Provider is for the email you registered with, or are currently using?

You are getting push-notifications via Tapatalk, correct? I actually have my ipad sitting on my desk and when I hear a push notification, I know before any email hits.. Definitely more convenient but when all is said and done, we need to have all current technology angles covered.

Thanks!

I am getting messages inconsistently. I never get one when someone comments on a post I've made, but I occasionally get one when I get a PM.

Ok, now that is strange. I'll definitely have a look at your settings sometime soon and see if there is something out of whack. You want to receive them for everything, correct?

I don't receive anything by email. When I first joined, I received emails for PM's but not for quite a few years now. I do get a message that I have a PM but only when I log on. I just thought that PTO had changed their policy so I never inquired further.

I checked my control panel and that feature is not disabled so I don't know why I'm not getting them. My internet service provider is Cox and has been since the day I registered.

Sounds like another email blacklist by our friends at Cox. The strange thing is we don't spam anyone. It has been YEARS since we mass emailed anything to members here. I will definitely look into it and it will be cleared up shortly. Sorry about that and thank you for your feedback!

I used to get notifications, but they stopped a while back. Over a year ago.

I access my email via Yahoo, a sbcglobal.net domain

nygirl - go to your User CP and modify it under Edit Options.

David, I'm getting emails, but my options are set not to receive emails every time someone posts to a thread I have replied to. I get all the forum updates and private message emails.
