    Partly. I looked to see if there was anything obvious. Right now, l don't have an email set up for the seniorsonly.club domain so I am using my kenanderson@kenanderson.net email, or maybe my kfander@gmail.com address, I forget. That was working fine before so I can't imagine why it wouldn't work now but I will try setting up a senioronly.club email and see if that helps.

    I haven't really kept track, but I think I bought this used Dell Optiplex (with XP Pro pre-installed) back in September. If so, then I have had it nearly a year. Ever since I got it, I've been on the internet at least 5 to 6 hours every day, and I go everywhere, including those sites the 'talking heads' warn against as being pits of malware (porn). According to M$ and their legions of volunteer parrots, this PC should have virus, trojans, rootkits, botnets, keyloggers, & etc., yet in nearly a year of surfing I only succeeded in obtaining 3 or 4 PUPs, which was quickly sent to the pound for some euthanasia by Malwarebytes. Until the shrill threats of Microsoft matches up with reality, I will consider that just hot air and propaganda and scare tactics. In other words, business as usual for M$.

    And like I said, it should be obvious this problem of not getting email notifications is not limited to me, and I much doubt everyone complaining about this is an XP Pro holdout.

    Yep, same today! Emails zero from here (Walmart and Target are having no problem getting through). I check in here, and it shows 11 alerts.

    I'm not overburdening @Ken Anderson with this, it's not important to me. I check this forum every day, so I'm unlikely to miss anything important, so for me, there's no rush to get it fixed...

    I liked getting the PM emails.

    Especially times when I'm away from home and out, I don't always check the forum but do my email acct.

    Yes, I think the e-mails can be very useful too.

    A few months ago, everyone was complaining about getting emails. I still haven't had time to set up another email account and match it to the forum, but I will eventually, I promise.

    If people are complaining on 'getting' Emails its simple to unsubscribe to them
    I have had PMs and been unaware of them, so haven't replied. I now have to keep logging in, just in case

    For anyone interested in 'not' receiving Emails, just go on to your 'preferences'
    and unclick Email notifications
