Ok, restarting this discussion here VS over on the MB/GPW technical link where the OP had asked.
For some time now many individuals have not received e-mail notification if they have either responded to or 'subscribed' to a post.
Not sure what's up, but at least HERE we can test out any changes in the proper area and maybe get a resolution.

Okay, I’m here, I changed all notifications to email as a test. Has anyone managed to fix this notification issue?

Well if it was supposed to work, it didn't for me, as I have no e-mails or junk emails from G503,and I set up the post. :roll:
So, this still stinks.

Let's see if we can narrow this down. In the past we've had issues with servers and SMTP access being cut off. that isn't the case right now.
No errors logged. I'm receiving email notifications of new topics. the admin email test button results in an email that says
"Congratulations. If you received this email, phpBB is correctly configured to send emails."

Looking for a reply to test
as i write this i can see below that "Notify me when a reply is posted" is checked on.

Okay, with only emails checked, I don’t get emails. So now I’ve checked everything! Notifications and emails. Is there some other area I’m missing. I also Jane notify me when a reply is posted.

I'm getting all email notifications. but...
I did discover that at some time google gmail decided to start placing my incoming notification emails in a tagged folder called 'Promotions' that I normally ignore.

great, so now I have a different place I have to look for missing emails.

anyway, I see nothing on this end that would indicate an issue with emailed notifications. that's not to say it isn't this end's problem, I just think at this point its more likely to be on your end.
Verify your email address in your profile. that address still works right?
search your email for a title like "Topic reply notification" and see if your email server or client is misplacing them for you.
search for the above and maybe note the time and date of the very last one you received.

Thanks Chris, I'm a Hotmail user, they have gone through several iterations of Outlook/Microsoft/Gmail while keeping the SMTP address forwarding, so I'm grandfathered with my old address, and that may be the issue here.

Both Hotmail, and therefore probably other outlook.com email services, and Gmail have decided that email notifications from either g503.com or the IP address of an upstream email server are most likely spam And bounce all messages to them from us.

The reason I didn't see the problem in Gmail is because I'm using an email address that goes to a different email service before being forwarded to Gmail.

So the problem isn't on your side. And well, not on our side either. but we may be able to convince them we aren't spam by jumping trough a bunch of hoops. And that will take time. Because us volunteers have a 2 hoop limit per week. :D

Thanks Chris, not sure what we could do on our end which wouldn't result in a flood of 'other' real spam making it through.

PS: normally I think an e-mail OUT to the G503's server site would establish the non-spam relationship, but if we never receive the e-mail, we cannot reply back to it. Perhaps there is a site e-mail to break through this blockage. WAW

I checked and my last message was from server@g503.com and that address doesn’t exist anymore. Where would I find out what address is g503.com using?

For quite some time, email notifications have been addressed from ron@g503.com
But if you send an email to that, it won’t go to this server, it will go to a different set of email servers and then to Ron’s inbox.
It probably won’t help much to try. But if you do, tell Ron I said hi!
