How is the concept of notification defined in LQ?


Hi:
How is the concept of notification defined in LQ as it appears in the header of the one before last column when I am in page Subscribed Threads? Thanks in advance.

I think it's given by "Default Thread Subscription Mode" under "Edit Profile"

Yes, I see it. But never did I get email from either LQ
or its members. Possible cause? I have it set to 'Daily
Email Notification'. Thanks for reading the post, billymayday.

You may want to check your spam folder.

I did, and I can say with certainty there's no emails in the
spam folder. Neither from LQ nor from any of its members. Thank you very much.

I can confirm your mail provider accepted the messages from LQ. From there you'd unfortunately need to contact them and ask why they're dropping legitimate mail.

Please do. The fact is that I can't find an email address in
their page, though I'll look a bit harder in the page and its links.
Thank you very much.

Who is this provider?
Would the following help?

It's possibly a little known fact, but the feature that Gmail calls an address alias, is actually provided in the original RFC's & is available from other providers. The feature is not mandatory, but providing it is in some sense in the spirit standards compliance.

I don't know what the real name for this feature is, but I call it "plus addressing" & have used since I was told about it 6 or more years ago. *

For instance, my LQ address is
"<username>+LQ@<my_ISP>.org".
My ISP's mail server provides a web interface where I have written a filter that pre-sorts all LQ mail into an LQ inbox. This LQ inbox is then available through the web interface or any IMAP client. If it were necessary, I could use the "+LQ" tag to whitelist LQ mail w/ my, or my ISP's, SPAM filters.

* The individual who told me about this has since died & I cannot find the RFC he pointed me to. This is very frustrating, as I would like to be able to reference it. There are some tantalizing hints at http://www.google.com/search?q=%22gm...ias%22&num=100
.ietf.org/rfc/rfc5321.txt[/url]

The "Subaddress Extension" RFC 5233 may be what you're looking for.

I'm most grateful for the piece of information you've retrieved for me.

The provider is Yahoo! de Argentina SRL, with seat at Bs.As. and it's really been clumsy of me. Anyway, I'll study the links and have some fun at it.

Kindly regards, E.S.

archtoad6: it is RFC 5233, but if you're reading this you already know, because it's in post #9 of this thread.

I'm not sure how the Argentine version of Yahoo mail spam filters work, but IIRC, the US version allows you to block mail from anyone that's not on your contacts list, and to delete suspected spam, rather than sending it to the spam folder. You might try adding forum@linuxquestions.org to your address book.

Hope this helps.
