Private Messages ???

Ever since I joined the Forum, whenever I have received a private message, I have also received "real" email telling me that there is a private message for me on the Forum.

Until this week.

I received several private messages this past week with no "real" email reminders.

Has something changed on the Forum, or have I accidentally changed some type of setting in my Forum account? I have "Receive Email Notification of New Private Messages" checked off, but I'm not getting any email notifications.
"For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life." (John 3:16)

I was in prison and you came to visit me. (Matthew 25:36)

Check your spam folder as sometimes messages get caught up in there.

I'm also moving this to feedback forum.
Chaos isn't a pit. Chaos is a ladder. Many who try to climb it fail and never get to try again. The fall breaks them. And some, given a chance to climb, they refuse. They cling to the realm, or the gods, or love. Illusions.

Only the ladder is real. The climb is all there is.

It probably is going to spam. Forum emails are send directly from the server, which isn't a great way to send them nowadays since they get labeled as spam.

For BlueZebra Sports (the officiating management software company I run) we are using a 3rd party solution that ensures high deliverability. Will try to switch the forum over to using that system forum is in need of an upgrade anyway!!

Appreciate the heads-up it's good to know what features people are using that make the forum more useful. Email is still a critical one for a lot of them.
