Have alerts stopped working or is it just me? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My alerts haven't worked all day, and now that I try to set it up again, I don't receive the confirmation email.  I saw the other post about losing settings.  I didn't lose my settings.

  • I just re triggered a confirmation email, so I didn't see a problem with that.

  • I've had this problem before.  I solved it by creating a gmail account specially for receiving alerts.  This has worked up until yesterday without problem (except when the forums were kind of down last week).

    I have tried 2 other email addresses, and I don't get the confirmation email.  It says it sent it but no go.

    This so un-cool, because I rely on these alerts to keep up with what's new, and there is no RSS feed on "My Forums Threads", which page I now have to keep open and refresh manually.

  • I've just created another gmail account, and reset my alerts to that account.  No confirmation email has yet been received.
