[F] Private Messages Won't Deliver To Recipient (I think)

Post by BlueDragonCody »

Hey, Mods?

I have sent three different private messages: two to a user known as "tom117z" and one to a user known as "DoctorJohnPotters." I sent the first two PMs on October 19th and 22nd, then I sent the last one a week later on the 29th. It's been eight days since then, and I'm worried something is wrong with the PM feature on this site. Could you guys try to fix it if you can?

Not a mod but, assuming the users have been active recently, the recent change has temporarily stopped the site from sending automated emails when something has happened (e.g. a new reply in a thread you follow or, in your case, a new PM). As such, you have to rely on the users logging into the site to see such messages.

You can try sending me a PM if you'd like. I'll check the site frequently to confirm

Legal (I hope) double post to say that I did receive the PM.

So, it's most likely what I said; the users, if active, haven't seen a new e-mail from the site, and have assumed nothing has happened.

Sorry for the late response, but I'm with Nicky Boy on this. I've been able to get PMs successfully, but I'm used to receiving email notifications when there's something on AAO that I need to check. I'm not getting those anymore, hence I'm slower to respond. I assume it's the same for the people you're conversing with.

If you have some specific reason to suspect a bug, I'd like to hear it. Otherwise, there's nothing for us to do but try to get emails working. Which I'd love to see, but is probably an Unas-specific task.
