I've Windows 10 and am unable to receive messages when I've marked posts as 'Notify' >>:-(

My Teccie (I'm a Luddite and am unable to fathom this computer technology) has checked out my system and come to the conclusion that the problem relates to the  MBM website.

Can anyone offer a solution - in idiot speak please. :-))

Thanks

Same here mine work but hey I am still on Win 7 pro.

Doing as the majority of gurus recommend, wait for all the "bugs" etc to settle down before switching if at all.

Read that US Navy and others are paying Microsoft Millions to keep XP alive and well.?????

Quite a few of us are not receiving notifications.  As they come through the email system, it can hardly be the fault of the home computer, I would have thought.

Has WIN 10, in its infinite wisdom, decided that the notifications are 'spam', and didn't bother telling you this?

The other option is to ensure (here, on MBM) that you are still set to receive notifications...Profile > Modify Profile > Notifications > X in the 'Enable notifications when I post or reply to a topic' box.

But, it seems unlikely that a number of Mayhemers had their notifications turned off at once, so I'd look at your own PC 'spam' settings.

I hope this helps! - Tom

Am not a computer supremo, but my understanding is that email advices are sent such as for this topic which I am receiving.
Therefore I fail to understand what Win 10 has to do with it, I would be looking at my email program.
Receiving advices, ie emails, on two PC's, one running XP Pro the other, this one, Win7.
One runs Outlook Express email client the other this, thunderbird, no problems.
Sounds like Win10 has done something or is not compatible with your email programme.???

Just tried it. Getting PMs but not the email notification. Checked webmail for spam but that has recently changed and was set to reject anything it thinks is spam. Very dangerous setting. I set it to trap spam and sent another pm. Got the PM but no email not even spam. <:(

Hi Martin , I've sent three messages to myself from the Mayhem site and got them back on the Mayhem massages, but not in the e-mails on my devices I can also receive messages from other members in the Mayhem messages but again not in my e-mails, I have checked the spam folder in case the notifications were going there for some reason but not there either, as I said it's no problem I just check Mayhem more often, but it is puzzling.  %%

OK, after some investigation, it seems this may half a 'TalkTalk' issue...... sort of!

When I first set up the forum, I created a specific Tiscali (TalkTalk) email account so as to send out email from the Forum, that now seems to be end of life... and anyway, I can't remember the password any more!

 I've now created a new Gmail account and I'm now testing that...... so if no one gets email anymore, this will be why!
