I mark "Notify me when a reply is posted" in threads I create; and when people submit posts - I don't get notifications.
BTW - maybe it relates to the fact that in the past - most notifications ended in spam in Gmail.

See if the fix posted here helps you.

The third post gives a fix that seems to work for Gmail.

As far as I can recall, in every case where notifications weren't coming, it turned out that the notifications were being shunted to the spam folder.

If it isn't that, I don't know what else it could be.

Flash - as I said - it use to arrive to spam. My guess is that after Google's filter program becomes certain enough that it is spam - it stops passing it through to the Email at all. And I marked it as "not spam" - many times; and it didn't change the fact that it arrived to spam.

bigpup - OK - I've made the filter in Gmail.

Did you get a notification that there was a reply to this thread?

No. Sad
I found some old notification from here and made the filter; but maybe that one didn't end in spam. All the ones which ended in spam in the past - I deleted; and Gmail deletes them entirely, so I can't make the filter.

Should I go to Gmail\Google help-forum? Or do you think the problem may be here?

As far as I know, everyone not using gmail who opts for notifications from the forum gets them. Actually I use gmail and I get notifications when I tick the little box for them. They've never wound up in my spam folder.

Try Google help and keep us posted. This is a recurring problem.

Now I also marked "don't send to spam" and something else, in the filter; and added "john@murga.org" to contacts (by Gmail help-forum advice).
BTW - is "john@murga.org" - the only Email from which notifications are sent?

So post something.

I've had the same problem with my gmail account. Received only 2 notifications of watched thread updates in nearly 2-3 weeks, since a few days before Christmas, IIFC. Had the spam filter modified since the early days when Gmail first implemented their changes. I thought the Murga forum was under attack and unable to distribute as usual Sad

PS Screenie of my in-tray, no deletions in that period

I wrote back to Gmail help forum, and they haven't replied "yet".

I change the Email here to another - that also redirects to my normal one, for which I see notification in the browser. The only possible problem is that it's also Gmail. If it won't work - I have another one; with notifications to Gmail - once a day. So - write "something" again.
