Forum fails to deliver email notifications

Aug 13, 2012 7:40 PM

I am no longer receiving email notifications from the Photoshop Forum, even though my settings are unchanged. Why not? How am I supposed to know when someone responds to my post?

    Gary,

     

    This is the opposite of what we usually see, where a subscriber is getting e-mail notifications, that they do not want, and do not understand why they are getting them.

     

    However, what you describe is not unheard of. One MOD recently reported similar to what you describe.

     

    As a test, in your Profile, turn OFF all e-mail notification, and then exit from the browser. Open your browser, go to your Profile, and recheck the e-mail notifications, that you want. Test.

     

    Good luck, and maybe John C. (Adobe-Admin) will have some other tips for you.

    Is it possible they have been classified as spam and sent there, or to trash, rather than to inbox?

    You are up to 91 subscriptions. I'm not getting reports from others about this. I got notified of this thread via my email subscription. Could your ISP be blocking the mail before it even gets to your in box?

     

    I'll ask Jive's hosting folks to see if there is anything they can deduce from the logs.

    I don’t think it is anything you are doing or anything on your system. It would be something happening to the email messages at the Jive mail server or at your ISP, out of your control. I’ve asked Jive to look into it.

    The mail server logs for the forums say that all of your notification messages are leaving the server here OK.

     

    They did point out that me.com is being phased out and replaced by icloud. No idea, though, if that could be part of the problem with receiving email from the forums: http://www.redmondpie.com/icloudcom-email-addresses-to-finally-replace -mecom-in-ios-6-beta-3/

    It is possible that your ISP has blacklisted the emails so they never get to you. I’d check with them to see what might be happening.

    You are subscribed to one complete forum. Unfortunately, the system doesn’t tell me which on.

     

    Which Photoshop Forum did it come from? If you go to the message in the notification (View the full discussion link in the email) does the link in the Actions panel for that thread say “receive email notifications” or “stop email notifications?” If it says, “receive” click on the forum name in the breadcrumb to get to the forum page and see what the link says there.

     

    Thanks!

    Hi Terri,

     

    I'm having the same problem. I've subscribed to the Photoshop for Beginners forum, but aren't getting any emails.

    Gary, yes, Stop Notifications means that at some point you clicked on the Receive Notifications link. Clicking it again will turn them off.

     

    Hi Sandee.

     

    You are subscribed to 3 forums. Are you getting any notifications from the other two?

    I have spoken to two Adobe people who have told me that the forums are indeed sending me emails, but I'm not getting them.

     

    They say this is probably a problem with me ISP. This confuses me. It doesn't make sense to me that I would get email from other parts of adobe.com such as apartners@adobe.com or prforums@adobe.com, but not forums_noreply@adobe.com.

     

    Also, if it is my ISP, shouldn't I still see those emails on my mac.com webmail service? The email is sent directly to mac and then my Mail client fetches the emails.

     

    Also, if it's my ISP, wouldn't I be able to see the emails on my smartphone. It doesn't use my ISP at all.

     

    If anyone has insight as to what organization I should try to contact (Apple and Time/Warner are both megaliths that I'd rather not tilt at without reason), could you let me know?

    I created a new Adobe ID for my gmail account. I got two messages and then nothing since.

     

    I didn't think the internet worked this way. How can my ISP, Time/Warner, block mail that goes to Google's servers?

    I click notiications on for everything in my list. Nothing. I click notifications off. Nothing. I get no email from my forum stuff, ever, and never have. Not a one, EVAH!

     

    Sales letters? Oh, yeah. The only support place I'm more fed up with (for paid services/products) is Skype. They stink almost as badly as Adobe, but not quite. Because I spend a lot more money here, you know? So it hurts worse.

    Your account is subscribed to get email notifications in 23 threads, but no full forum spaces. If there have been new replies to any of those threads since you clicked on Receive Email Notifications you should be getting email from forums_noreply@adobe.com. Can you check your spam filter to see if they are getting caught up there? I received your post via email notification and am replying to it via email.

     

    Thanks!
