Problem getting replies to posts

New postby Glyn Meredith » Sun May 17, 2015 1:24 pm

Hi, Jim,

... Glyn,

I am not getting any reply's to post when I post to them, therefore don't know what is happening unless I check myself? I have the reply box checked ...


You have already said that your reply box is checked so I'm assuming you checked the "Notify me when a reply is posted" box in Options ...

1. If you "Subscribe" to any topic (bottom left side of topic page) you should get a notification of the next post in that topic.

2. Failing that, you might have posts going to a spam filter on your e-mailer, or a box which your non-regular e-mail gets diverted to.

Did you get my e-mail reply to you on this subject? If not, #2 above might apply.

Good luck with this, Please let me know what happens.

Glyn,
No, I didn't recieve a notice about a reply to this thread or any threads I reply to . I have a seperate spam mail box and they are not in that. This has been going on for several years now. Does anyone else have the problem. I have AOL with Internet Explorer as my browser.

Jim,
Sounds like a problem with a setting within AOL. I used to use them but gave it up every time a change came out they would also change some setting I wanted left alone. I use GMail as my primary email client now to get away from all that and it's free to use! Once you set it up you can change your default email here on GH and that should solve all your problems. I also keep my business emails separate from everything else this way...

I still have AOL on IE and I never got email alerts either. When I shifted this forum to my Verizon email, I also changed the box to get alerts and now I get them. Not sure if the problem is with AOL or the way Jim has it set up.
