    I've noticed the last couple days I've recieved private messages but was never notified via email.

    I checked my settings and that box is checked off. Anyone else having the same issue?

    I have had some issues with my email here in the last few days, which operates from the same server as the boards.. apparently our host was moving some stuff around, and we ended up with a IP address for that server that is on the blacklist for many providers. We are working to correct this.

    Thank you, Sir!

    I was wondering if it was just me.

    Just to add I noticed I stopped getting email alerts for watched threads. I use Gmail and found a ton in the spam folder. Flagged them as 'not spam' and added the board email address to my contact list.

    Yep, all mine were in the spam folder too.Went to add address here but for some reason it's asking for my wife's password on her personal account so will need to go that route and hopefully not get her account flooded with Buick emails or just forget it as I will probably screw something up worse. The host definitely got mine on the blacklist.

    Yes, having this issue with my company emails also.. what happened is that the outfit that has our server, moved to a new location, and as such, a new block of IP's was given to our server.. Those IP's were previously issued to a spammer, and are now on everyone's blacklist.. All the sudden I had emails bouncing back, or ending up in the spam folders of my customers. WE have been fighting this for a while now, changed IP's within that block a couple times, but we need to get a whole new set of IP's issued to us.. Mike Bucy handles this stuff for us, His dad Fell ill and died here in the last couple weeks, so I have not been leaning on him too much about this.. His Dad's funeral was last week, so I will see if we can get this fixed once and for all soon here.

    How can I stop receiving email notifications? I've been through everything and can't find how to discontinue that?

    If you are watching cars for sale for example go to that thread and look over on the right were it says “Watch” or “Unwatchable” & select one you want.
    Hope that works for ya
