    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

    Hi Ken - if its a problem for us to get the Emails - would it be easier if we just got the PM Emails ?
    I like to respond to them but I'm unaware of them most times

    Given that the posting members on this forum is small.. those of you who ''need'' Pm notifications..could you not just give your email address to your 'friends''

    I don’t really see what the size of the forum has to do with it.
    E-maill notifications and the option to have them or not, is an integral part of any forum.
    Members shouldn't have to give out their E-mail address to supplement the failure of the system.

    I agree with your point, but my reference to the 'size' of the membership of the forum was meant to point out that PM's here tend to be between 'friends' and not strangers, so whilst the PM system isn't working as it should, I can't see a problem with friends contacting each other by email, if they can't wait to read a PM on the forum when they log in..
