forum subscriptions broken?


I usually get dily activity emails for 10-11 forums.

I have not received any now for several days.

Are the forum subscriptions broken?

These are forum subscriptions, not thread subscriptions.

I can confirm that the emails are going out as expected and that they were accepted by the mail server for your domain.

I received a "reply to this thread email".

I will try subscribing to another forum to see if the new one sends out messages.

The new forum that I subscribed to gave me a daily update email.

So I suspect that all my other forum subscriptions have been somehow turned off, even though when I spot check a few forums, the tool pull down says I am subscribed.

I will try unsubscribing and re-subscribing a few forums and see if the daily summaries are emailed again.

I reset my subscriptions on two forums (out of 11).

This morning I found all of my forum subscription daily summaries in my inbox.

So I do not know if my one reset fix all or whether they self-corrected.

My daily forum subscriptions have stopped again. The last set came in July 6.

I tried unsubscribing and resubscribing, but they still are not coming through.

I cannot tell if thread subscriptions are working. If someone replies to this thread, I can find out.

pwalden, I can confirm that your provider is not accepting the emails. You'd need to contact them to find out why.

Comcast pointed me to these sites to resolve block. I cannot request the block removal as I do not have the information about linuxquestions mail server.

I would think this affects all comcast ISP users on linuxquestions.

This links cites various reasons why a sending site might be blocked.

This site has a link to the block removal request form.

Here is the link to the block removal request form. Ironically the site certificate labeled untrustworthy

I hope the block can be removed. I rely on the email notifications to scan the BBN activity.

It worked! The forum email summaries showed up last night.

Thanks. Was there any hint as to why Comcast blocked linuxquestions?

Some background:

BT (an ISP in the UK) did this to me (and probably hundreds of others) a few years ago. No LQ notifications arrived, and Jeremy said they were not being accepted by my ISP.

So I phoned them, in Kolkatta, or Mumbai. Apparently they noticed many of BT's users were receiving a lot of emails from LQ.

So they decided it had to be spam, and blocked it.

Once Jeremy had filled in the appropriate form, normal service was restored

Thanks Jeremy!

Yes Comcast seems to go by the same playbook. I tried calling their tech support, but none of those jokers actually have access to their behind the scenes server admins or logs. All they can handle are Windoze user client problems.

So they could not tell me why LQ was blocked. They could only point me to their unblock request form page, which Jeremy handled.
