My test mail has not been received on Virgin's site.  It always goes there first and is then sent on to me via NTLworld.

I looked in the spam folder there as well, but nothing from here.

You have to be doing something wrong, all still OK here in land of OZ. :-)) :-)) :-))

Doesn't make sense that it is the forum, if so everyone would be having issues.

I am a Novice and I don't have anywhere near the issues complained about but hey, I apply KISS which works for me.

Fortunately I don't have any problems like this and my laptop runs W.10 and I use Edge,Firefox and Chrome browsers at random with McAfee keeping the nasties at bay, and have no issues with the functions of this Forum, notifications appear in the 'notifications' box on the taskbar and also as mail in 'outlook'.

Dunnit. PM sent OK but still No Show on my eMail >:-o

PS: all MBM settings are as they should be to enable transmission  of notifications and there's nought wrong with my computer/eMail settings either (Teccie authenticated).

Can you guys email yourselves through the Forum to test the system?


PM sent OK but not received by my eMail >:-o. All computer and Forum settings are set correctly according to my Techie.

The 'notify 'facility is not indispensable but it's very useful and it would be a blow if it can't be resurrected. <:(

Well I've checked all the settings and they are the same as when I used to get notifications, as it is only some of us that is affected could it be our e-mail providers, I'm with Virgin media who revamped their e-mail service a short while ago, about the time I stopped getting notifications, but I receive e-mails as normal, it's not a problem but it was useful.  {:-{

Yes, makes sense, recently here in OZ, Hotmail put a block on ALL emails from 1 ISP, seems hackers were sending blankets of spam using an account from the ISP. Took 10 days to shut down the spammers before I was able to send an email to any Hotmail recipient.

It is strange that this problem has coincided with some members changing to WIN10.?????

RadioJoe,  you have awakened a memory, seeing as you are also on the Virgin system , like me.

My Virgin account  'sign in'  at YouTube was  suspended as the owner  (Google) have fallen out with Virgin because they refused to allow customers details to be transmitted to them.  I have to use my Google mail system to now be able to sign into YouTube.

This is now means my files of 30 films are now in-accessible to me and I have  started a new set of films.  Both sets appear in the index under my name but I can only access the new ones.

Sorry to drift off the subject Guys, but I thought the same sort of selection might be affecting the Mayhem's mail structure.  It all seems dependant on the route it takes.   %)

More likely to be a change of browser possibly if you are using webmail.

Perhaps there are common dominators which apply to us sufferers:
I'm with Virgin Media(NTL world)/ Windows 10/Google browser and have only recently experienced this problem despite the fact that all my settings have remained unchanged.

What about you!

I'm with Virgin media on three devices, windows 7, vista, and windows 8, I received notifications on all of them.  :((  I've just upgraded the windows 7 to windows 10 that was today so nothing to do with our issue.
