I don't get notices of messages -- why?

Recommended Posts

Best I can tell I get notices of everything but messages.  Notices of cache actions, Traveler actions, PQs ready, new caches, etc all seem to be working good.  I get a few messages.  I've never tried to do a count but I'd guess I get about a random 10%.  I'm always stumbling on messages on GC that are as much as 2 weeks - a month old.

 

Does anybody know what causes this and how I fix it?

One thing to check:

1) Go to your profile

2) Click on the green "View Profile" to see your public profile

3) Click on the settings gear icon on the right side of your public profile

4) Click on "Email Preferences"

5) Check the Message Center box and select "Send me a notification every time I receive a message."

 

If that is already set, I'm not sure what to tell you.

Check your spam folder. The message Center email notices come from a different domain, and may get flagged as spam by your email provider.

Thanks for your reply.  The Email Preferences was checked, but the Send notification every time . . .  was not so I checked it, but it doesn't seem like that should cause the problem because messages that came long after I was last in the messages area don't arrive.

Thanks for your reply, but I don't have a spam folder. 

 

PS  I like all of your taglines, particularly the last one.
