Hello,

The email notification feature is not working for me, I don't get mails when a topic of mine is replied. What might be the problem?

Sometiems failure notices come by on my end when email adresses are not valid, or unreachable. I think the mailer of this forum blocks .ru domains (like [email protected]) and some others. So if you have an email address like that you might have problems with that. I see your email ends on .info which is also uncommon. It might be that it will pose a problem too. Did you receive notifications in the past, and what about pm's ?

With regards

No, I'm quite new here, didn't get any email notifications before. I haven't receive any PM's yet so I don't know if it works :)

It looks like your email is a custom domain one, right? I know notifications work for members as i get them too when I receive a PM. Do you have any other mailboxes you can try?

Hmmm, ok I'll change my mail address into Yahoo one. PhpBBs seem to be always having problems with spams and spam protections :\
