Just a thought on this mystery: Sometimes emails will get rejected for some reason so the sender tries again in a set amount of time. that time could be an hour, could be 24 hours. Could also be it keeps trying and finally gets accepted 24 hours later.
I'm thinking that this was initially set for a single try, which is why things were failing immediately. Someone went in and changed it for a series of retries, which is why things are now showing up much later.
A good thought and Well explained. I have seen a misspelled username being returned for days previously. Till they stop trying. .
Are you receiving Community notification emails today?
I've been getting them all along, best I can tell.
Perhaps my Community Board settings are different than yours.
I am "subscribed" to any disscussion that I stick my 2 cents worth in, then the board sends me an email every time sombody else does too. In theory I should have received 2 emails from just you today. I received No email from the board subscriptions today or for the past 5 days. The email system is not sending them.
Emails #13 and #14 mentioned here did eventually come through at 5:06AM and 5:07AM, respectively.
I just sent direct to MSN tests #15 and #16, and like tests #9 and #10 mentioned here, they failed, though unlike those two, these two failed immediately.
Thanks Gabe, I've sent this up to the e-mail admins. Let's wait to see how they're doing with their correspondence with MSN. I'll post back once I hear back from them.
An adjustment was made, please let me know if forwards and emails to MSN are working normally now.
Regarding the sending order, MSN also controls how traffic flows and this can affect the order in which e-mails are delivered.
I just tried two direct to MSN emails and they went right through.
However, whatever they did now stopped my Community notifications being sent to my hughes email. SMH.
Thanks Gabe! Looks like the notifications also stopped going to @maratsade. We're working on this; I'll keep you both updated.
Without having to rely on receiving an email notification from the community since that's a whole other issue now, can you please check if you can forward any other email to MSN?
I'll send you a test e-mail to forward.
