    Feb 11, 2008, 8:32 AM - PM E-mail Notifications #1

    For the past couple of days I will get a PM, but the E-mail notifications that I normally get instantly are now taking a few hours to show up.

    Anyone else experience this issue?

    I've been getting that myself too.

    Although, I'm not sure whether it's taking a few more hours or days for me to get my notifications.

    Maybe it's just that we're on a new "experimental" type of high speed internet connection... it just takes time for the real world to catch up.

    I'm getting posting notification emails and PM notification emails from my for sale thread 3 days later and completely out of order. Good thing I stopped trusting the email notification 3 days ago. Hope it gets sorted out.

    dreamhost has pretty regular email issues... seems like just another one. i'm sure they'll straighten it out, probably after someone complains

    So I went to my e-mail today and I saw I had some PMs, I came here expecting to see 6 PMs which I had counted, turns out they just hadn't arrived to my e-mail until this afternoon.

    Likewise, my notification takes a few hours to get to me...

    I still have not gotten the E-mail notification from this.

    However, I sent one last night to myself as a test (at 10:12PM) and I got it at 1:53AM.

    Got an email from Count Dookie;

    checking to see if all emails initiated from vBulletin are being delayed, or just the "new PM" notifications.

    I sent this through the "send email" form on TDH, at 7:38 AM PST. Maybe you can post the time stamp from this mail in the thread.


    I received the email at
    Monday, February 11, 2008 7:38 AM
    so I guess it's only the PM notification that's messed up

    Dear ItsThatGuy,

    You have received a new private message at The Dented Helmet from ItsThatGuy,
    entitled "Test 11:36AM".
    I guess it works again...I sent it out at 11:36 and then checked my e-mail and that was the notification.
