Post subject:  Notification mails don't arrive anymore

Recently, I don't get any notification mails anymore when somebody answered the topic.

The threads where people answered are definitely in my subsription options:

And just to make sure, I added a rule to my e-mails "if sender contains nesdev, then move to inbox and don't apply any more rules".

But I still don't get the notification mails anymore, even though it worked in the past and I didn't change my account settings.

Can you please check what's up here? Were the notifications of the two threads in the screenshot sent to me in the past days, so that I have to re-evaluate my e-mail program? Or did they never go out?

I think the same goes for PM notifications now? Not sure when it started since those are sorted into a gmail folder i need to check manually anyway, but that would suggest the mail robot is down.

The emails stopped going out after 12-31. Google likes flagging the account for "suspicious activity", usually it works again after I log in and re-verify. We'll see if that fixes it.

Thanks for the notice!

In the meantime, it worked again, but now I have the issue again: Two forum replies and one private message without a notification.

When I logged in Google gave me a stern warning about sending unsolicited emails, and suggested that I file a "my account is locked" appeal, which I did. I doubt it would be acted on, but whatever. Other than that, it let me log in normally and is back to sending messages again.

Lately we've had some massive spam attacks, with huge numbers of fake accounts passing the registration trivia questions, could be related to that. Or it could be Google changing things over there, not sure.

Interesting. When I search something in Google, it sometimes tells me that I have to verify that I'm a human because apparently, suspicious actions came from my network. Maybe they're just paranoid in the moment.

This time, the notification mail arrived.

They definitely are, and also, they want to force people to make google accounts, and for those having an account, they want to foce them to give them personal data such as phone number.

It happened again: Got a PN, but no e-mail notification.

Maybe you should send the mails out with a different mail address if Google is being shitty in the moment?

Changing the From: line, or the SMTP envelope From, will not fix this problem.

For your reply, I got a mail again. It seems to fail arbitrarily.

I tried switching it to send through membler-industries.com. Not sure if it's working yet, nothing is showing up in the "sent" box, but I'm not sure if it normally would. Let me know if you see it working or not.

edit: I was able to have it send a test message to myself. But in Gmail it showed up in the spam folder, if that happens to everyone else then it's not going to work very well.

I didn't get a mail again for this reply here and for a thread where I wrote a post and where others posted.

Also, I most likely would have seen an NESDev mail in the spam forum, so I assume it never arrived.

Aaand it happened again: Got a private message, but no notification.

Speaking of which, can we change the header from "info" to "nesdev notification" or the like?

For the past week it has been emailing through membler-industries.com, but I'm not sure I have the SPF record set properly for membler-industries.com, and it probably needs to be changed on nesdev.com as well, I'll need WhoaMan to do that. So while the emails are going out, in my gmail address they show up in the spam folder (with it reporting it couldn't verify the sender). I guess I'll have to switch it back to the old system for now.

Surprisingly, phpBB won't accept the usual "Name <email@domain.com>" format as an email address. To include a name, it would have to be hacked into the code, that's really dumb.
