At least for now, and at least for me, the MSN block has again disappeared.  Hopefully it will stay that way.

So you're not getting a bounce message, but the test mail is still not being received by your MSN email?  

 

Weird.  Well, this whole thing is weird, but that's weird in and of itself.  Maybe rather than a direct bounce this time it's being delayed.  That's just a guess.  I have no clue.  🙁

 

I'm keeping my hughes.net >> Gmail >> MSN forwarding scheme in place for the time being, as I don't trust that MSN won't start bouncing the direct hughes.net forwards again soon, like they did on Friday.

Oh! Great! pretty soon Gmail will be blocking the rest of us sending from hughes also.

Re: Community notification emails have stopped.

Good morning Gabe,

 

Thank you for your PM. It's promising that direct e-mails from HN to MSN works. Do you think while troubleshooting the other e-mail stuff and deleting/moving batches of mail, bounceback emails from failed forwards were deleted in that process too?

 

Sidenote: after a meeting with our e-mail admins yesterday, they said they'd clear up that issue with the inbox notifications. That's no longer happening now, is it?

 

If so, whenever you want to test forwarding again from HN to MSN. I'd turn that back on and let me know so I can PM you a few times to ensure you get notifications; this way I have timestamps for the PMs in case there are no e-mailed error messages. I'd have our e-mail folks check on their end to see if they notice something wonky happening around those timestamps.

Direct emails are Not working

its like MSN is just discarding the emails after receiving them and not notifying.

We are Not receiving inbox notifications and server errors

the emails just vanish

Though the direct emails from my hughes.net email to my MSN email were working last evening, they're again not working today.  🙁  However, it's not giving me a failure notice, so it's possible that there is a delay and that they will, in fact, be delivered at some point.  I'll keep checking to see if either the failure notices show up (I tried two emails) or the emails finally show up at my MSN address.  If the latter happens. I'll change the forwarding to sending them directly to my MSN address to see if that is now working.  

 

Regarding the forwarding bounces, I don't get any.  The forwarded Community notifications just never make it to my MSN address.  I only come to the conclusion that they are being denied or bounced when I test it by trying to send a direct email.

 

Basically, if I come online in the afternoon or evening and see no Community notifications in my MSN email, I go to check my hughes.net email.  If I see the notifications there, I then know something happened with the forwarding.  I then try a direct email to my MSN address, and if that fails I then know why the forwards never made it.  This is, of course, when I have it set to forward directly to my MSN address.  I only ever use the hughes > GMail > MSN forwarding as a backup when there are problems with the hughes > MSN forwarding.

 

To close, it's now been twenty minutes since I first tried the direct emails.  I've still not received them at my MSN address and there are still no failure notifications at my hughes.net address.  I'll edit this reply if that changes, or when I go to sign off for the night if nothing has changed.  I sent an email directly to my Gmail address, and it immediately sent and was then forwarded by Gmail to my MSN, which I received nearly instantaneously.  I did that just to make sure that there wasn't an issue with ALL outgoing messages from my hughes.net address.

 

Edit:  I ended up sending a third direct email from my hughes.net address to my MSN address.  The three were sent at 6:10PM, 6:12PM and 6:33PM.  At 8:58PM the second of the three (6:12PM) was received.  Nothing yet on the first and third.  In the off chance that something changed, I sent a fourth at 9:11PM (a few minutes ago).  Like the others, it didn't didn't come through.  If it does, or the other two do, or I see failure notices from any of the three that haven't yet made it, I'll again update this reply.

 

Edit 2:  Just as I was getting ready to sign off for the night the 1st and 4th tests came through, both at 2:13AM.  They were originally sent at 6:10PM and 8:58PM respectively.  I then decided to send two more.  One at 2:20AM and one at 2:23AM (test #5 and #6).  Both came through immediately.  The 2nd test, which was sent at 6:12PM, still has not been received at MSN.  I'll go ahead and change the forwarding back to MSN to see what happens.  I'll know if it's working when I sign back on tomorrow (technically later today).

 

To add to Edit 2, I just sent an email from MSN to hughes, and it forwarded back to MSN almost immediately.  So, as of right now (2:33AM), it's working.  I'm keeing my fingers crossed.  Ta ta.

If you're referring my reply in the "Spam emails" topic about the number perpetually on my Inbox indicator, it's still there.  When I deleted the notification emails up until the point of my last reply it was there.  However, I then got another notification.  When I deleted that, the number (32) disappeared.  So, I thought it was fixed.  I then closed the page, opened a new one and checked again, and it was back.  I cleared out my cache and tried again, just in case that might help, but it didn't. It's still there.  🙁

 

I also tried with my seldom used Firefox browser.  It's there with that too.
