Used to get notifications on subscribed threads


If someone posted a comment to a thread that I expressed an interest in I used to get an email prompting me that something's changed.

This stopped for me several months ago.Just got back from a holiday and haven't found the time to wade through 2 weeks of posts.

Is there anything I can do to restart notifications or have these just been stopped for everyone?

Maybe your "Default Thread Subscription Mode" on profile.php?do=editoptions was changed?

You currently have your email preferences set to No. Note that a hard bounce will automatically disable further emails from being sent until you re-enable.

In LinuxQuestions.org > Forums > User Control Panel -> Edit Options I have the Default Thread Subscription Mode set to "Instant email notification" where do I find the email preferences.

I have this exact issue and did not change any settngs.
I did, however, install the "app" could that be the cause?
I am willing to be proven wrong as I do, sometimes, mess things up without realising it.

I can confirm that:

1) Installing the app in no way impacts your notification settings.
2) All your email preferences are set to "No".

A reminder: a hard bounce will automatically disable further emails from being sent until you re-enable

Sorry to sounbd stupid but which email settings? Can you tell what I changed recently?
It could be possible my mail provider was down at some point but, since I never changed my mail settings, I have no idea where to look.

I have "Default Thread Subscription Mode" set to "Instant email notification" what else is there?
For the record I have received email form many other sources to the inbox where I usually receive email form this site, so I know it is working.

The "Receive Email from Administrators" box must be checked to get thread update emails.
