Actually, I got a PM today and wasn't email notified either! First time I recall it happening.

PS: And vice versa. It ain't just me.

I got a PM and didnt get a notification. Scared the hell out of me, because it involved not having someone at my party that said they would, but didn't get the PM otherwise.

I've not been getting email notifications for my PMs for about 2 weeks now and because of the SS thing I'm getting quite a few come through too so it's a little annoying!

I've gotten e-mails notification for my last 2 PM's so I don't have any trouble.

Since I was using hotmail for getting anything from OB i made sure i marked everything OB as not junk on hotmail's web interface. Maybe you guys have to check your junk mail folders on whatever webmail system you use.

Hotmail eh? Interesting. I'm using Gmail, with labels directing everything with "otakubooty" in the subject line or sender, and haven't had a notification since 12/29. Are all of us who're having problems using Gmail?

Nope. I use Yahoo. And I haven't gotten a notification email since the update.

I haven't gotten email notifications and mine is usually sent to my hotmail account.
It was working for me a week or so ago, but not recently.

While I did have hotmail for ob messages I use Thunderbird for all my e-mailing needs so nothing gets filtered outside of the real junkmail before i even get it to thuderbird.

i would suggest not blocking the current e-mail address announcements@bootyproject.org or announcements@bootyproject.org which was used until 2008.

I'll look into this ASAP although that probably means early next week after Magfest.

I think this is still not happening, and I'm on Mobile Me if that helps.

Totally am not getting e-mail notifications. It's not a big deal for me since I'm pretty much always checking the site anyway, but just sayin'.

Sorry about the delay on this.

I finally looked into it and it looks like an outbound port they mistakenly closed on the router at the data center.

I've let them know about it. Unfortunately my timing was bad as it's now Friday afternoon - sorry, was a hectic week - and since it's a non-emergency it might not be fixed until Monday.

But I'd be shocked if they didn't have this resolved by Monday afternoon!
PS: They betta FIX MY SHIT

Test test.
PS: Hrm. Still not working, except now I'm not sure why.
PS: OK, this works now.

Google actually made a slight change on their end of things (I use Google's SMTP to send emails) and it took some experimentation to figure out exactly what the heck they changed.
