    I have my User CP options setup so that i receive an instant e-mail when someone posts in a thread i'm subscribed to. Problem is that, since about 2 days or so, i only receive a fraction of the e-mails i was supposed to.

    Example:

    I'm subscribed in 5 topics and all are replied to but, instead of receiving 1 e-mail for each topic (5 in total), i get 1 or 2 ... and don't receive any notification that the other topics were replied to ...

    Is there a glitch, somewhere?

    @ moderator: is this the proper place to post this? I'm not sure :(

    might be your spam filter in your browser?

    check your browser setting's and make shure it's allowing all incoming E-mail's from TPU

    Are the threads you didn't get a mail for in specific forums?

    I haven't changed anything in my browser. That fact that some e-mails i get but most of them i don't receive puzzles me :confused:

    Here's a good example:

    I'm subscribed to this topic and it was replied to, but i didn't get an e-mail notifying me of that :(

    I just got home from work and i had about 8 or 9 e-mails from TPU. For you to get 200 per day, something is quite wrong, IMO.

    Says this in each e-mail

    There may also be other replies, but you will not receive any more notifications until you visit the forum again.

    All the best,

    Yup: sometimes, there are like 15 replies since my last visit in a thread.

    If TPU were to e-mail with every single reply, then i would agree that it would be way too much.
