Email Notifications????????????

United States
June 23, 2007 4:37pm CST
For the past two weeks, I have noticed that I am NOT receiving the email notifications that someone has responded to my discussions or that someone on my friends list has posted a discussion. Is anyone else having this problem?? I have checked my preferences and all the appropriate boxes are checked. I should be receiving the email notifications for about 35 people. Please let me know if anyone else is having this problem. Thank you.

Check your blocked addresses file to see if the emails are being blocked. If you look at the response above you will see more on this.

I tried that.they were on but still wasn't getting notified.I don't think it was anything on mylot's end. I was getting some of my emails and some i wasn't .that is why I sent mylot to my other email address.it has been working fine since. thanks for the comment!

It is possible your friends may have been banned from mylot. A lot of people were banned in recent weeks from this forum, so may be that is why you don't receive any notifications from them. It could also be that their is some error with your account that does not allow you to get notifications. or, it may be from your email server, may be the notifications are not getting their or may be they are filtered in to the bulk folder or something like that.

I knew that my friends have not been banned. I have been finding their postings and trying to respond to them. I have plenty of their postings on my home page and on their profile pages. As for them being active, yes, they have been very busy. Plus you are talking about approximately 35 people possibly being banned or locked out. The odds are against that happening.

A lot of people got banned in the past few weeks. And even after being banned, the discussions they have started still remain active here at mylot. But I am not saying they are banned or anything, I am just speculating as to the reasons why don't get email notifications.

Well I am getting mine now that I removed mylot from the block list!LOL I am not certain how I sent then there, but I did and was thinking that they had removed the notify on the comments again, until I got pm's from friends and still did not get an e-mail.

Guess what I just found in my blocked addresses list....discussions@mylot.com. Now isn't that interesting. I did not put it there. At least not on purpose. I unblocked it and now I am watching to see what happens. Thank you so much for mentioning this.

LOL GOOD!! Now I don't feel so ditzy for doing it! I think it is yahoo's fault any way. They are the one that put spam right beside delete!! I am sure that is how it happened. I just hope you didn't have anything else important checked when it happened. I think I will take a second look when this storm passes. For now, I gotta get off here!

Some I receive and some I don't. I do not receive all my personal messages either.

See!!!! This is what I am talking about. What is the world is going on with the email notification system??? I always found it to be so useful to go to my email and go down the list of my friends first before searching for other discussions to respond to.

I must have something to do with money. Everything boils down to money on the programs. I have a friend who was deleted from Mylot.com, they owed her $60. She wrote to her over and over, and they will not respond to her. Other have been deleted, too. She has the most innocent discussions so it was not that.

My email notifications are very sporadic and spotty. It really does a lousy job of keeping me up to date. No, you most definitely not the only one having that problem.

Are you having any problems with the PM system? I heard that some people were also having problems with that. Of course, they were just using their other messaging program to get around that glitch. Down below this discussion, I am now seeing that there are other discussions on this same or similar issue.

I very rarely use the PM system, so I have no idea if myLot is having problems with that or not. I really prefer other instant messaging systems to communicate online, anyway.

It was not in the preferences section. I had already checked on that before posting. After a friend's suggestion, I did find that the problem was in my personal email program and it was easily fixable. I still don't know how that address got blocked but it is working now.

I hope I get this sorted out or figured out also. I did a search on this subject and came up with nothing. I posted this discussion and noticed at the bottom of the page a few other discussions on this subject. So I guess the search engine is not performing properly either. How many glitches can we find and identify at once??? LOL P.S. I just love your new hunky looking avatar. Oh baby! He is a hot one.

You might want to contact admin about it. Mine seems to be working correctly, and I haven't been missing any notifications. Double check your friends list too. There was one time I had checked mine and for some reason the notifications had been turned off. I think our little Mylot ghost is up to his tricks again! LOL

Oh I forgot to mention that I also went through my entire friends list and double checked each one. The notifications has not been turned off on any of the ones that I am looking for discussions and responses from. Yes, I think we have a ghost in the hallways of mylot.

Dont worry, you are not the only one. All of us face this problem time and again. I have started discussions on this and answered discussions of others on this very same problem. This is something that myLot has not solved for a very long time. After the first major change of mylot which occured in December last year, this problem has come to surface and since then, members have been discussing about this. MyLot is doing a lot and going through changes eternally. So, i think they are not treating this as a major problem to solve immediately. But as members, most of us feel that this is a basic requirement. I hope and pray mylot would look at this and take corrective measures. More and more people should start discussing this and then myLot might notice and feel the depression (LOL)

I am thankfully not having this problem but a friend of mine brokentia on here did a couple of months ago. She had to send mylot a few messages before they got the glitch worked out and her notifications back up and running again. Email them and hopefully they can get it fixed ASAP for you :)

I saw that folks told you check to see if this address was in the banned list on your email. Also it must be listed on the safe list of your email. Barring that you have to notify Management. Might take them a while since this is a recurring glitch. With all the eye candy for banners and such and the new profile stuff which I cannot manipulate. I thought that this would happen more frequently. Usually does for some aroung the end of the month or payout time. Seen that before on a number of occasions. Good luck with this.

I think that I am not receiving some of mine too, I sometimes come across a discussion that one of my friends have started, and I know I would answer it But I can never remember seeing an email about it...Not all the time but a few times this has happened.

by mistake there might have been a spam on these mails..it will take some time to set things right.

Sometimes there's a delay. I had the above happen and about a week of not receiving any I got a tone of them! (which was hard and tiring to go through the ones which I had already responded to or had read) Kudos, ~Joey P.s could be this, :)

I am getting as far as I know my freinds have posted a dicussion. I had 67 this morning after not checking it for 24 hrs. That seems about right to me. This has happened once before when the notification got whacked out for a couple of days, and it didn't seem to affect everyone. So even though I am saying no, it could be a problem. Keep writting mylot and asking for help.
