Email Notification should now be working 100%.

  • New users will get an email when they register
  • If you forget your password, you can have it email you a password reset link
  • When you get a PM you can get an email notification
  • When you subscribe to a thread, you can get an email for replies
  • Forum news posts can be sent out periodically.
The formatting problem we had going on should now be solved.
Emails are now sent out in HTML format with pictures and links etc.

To Disabled Notifications for threads:
  • Click on "Profile" on the top menu
  • Hover over "Modify Profile"
  • Click on "Notifications"
  • Uncheck "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic" (note, you can always click the "notify" button on any topic you wish to be notified for)
  • Check any topic you with to remove notifications for and press "Unnotify"
I Recommend CHECKING

"When sending notification of a reply to a topic, send the post in the email (but please don't reply to these emails"
This way you can read the reply right from your email and save precious seconds for time sensitive topics (eg, when tickets go live, etc)

Received two e-mails and they look as a print of the e-mail source code (headers and body)

Click on Profile on the top menu
Then hover over "Modify Profile" and select "Notifications"


You can see all the threads you have set to notify you, and disable them

Also, uncheck the first option: "Turn notification on when you post or reply to a topic."

It enabled itself on my account somehow a couple week ago.

The email notifications were fixed (it was a major long-term issue that jopari was working on for a while, and the issue predated the move to the new server).  Anyways, because it was fixed, notifications became active again for accounts that didn't have it disabled. 

(If you had previously disabled email notifications on your forum account a long time ago--for when you post or reply to a topic--you wouldn't have recently gotten several email notifications at once after everything was fixed.)

^__^; Hope that clarifies things.

I believe I have resolved the formatting problem for the notification emails.

Please let me know if any new emails from the forum have any formatting issues.

First post updated with current email notification status, and recommendations.
