Ah, crikey... I'll have to resort to professional help on this one. Could take another day or two to sort out.

notifications marked as spam

As if Chris doesn't have other things to deal with :) Today, all the thread notifications are being flagged as spam by Spamhaus and from what I can tell it's partly because there's no valid "from" address. It only says The Digital Info Network. In the header though I do see a chris at hardy2, with no domain. I can apply a filter so this doesn't happen in Mailwasher, but just curious why the change.

Which notification frequency are you using, Bill? Instant, daily, weekly...?

So, Bill, I guess you're *not* having the issue described in this thread:

http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/dv-info-n...ification.html

...? Just trying to figure out if there's some relation or common problem here.

No, this just started happening today, I believe... and as far as I'm aware, I haven't noticed not receiving notifications. The difference between the current notifications & the previous ones are within the "from" column...

current: From: The Digital Video Information Network <chris at hardy2> (note no domain)
previous: From: The Digital Video Information Network <chris at dvinfo.net>

It's not a big deal really. So far it's only Mailwasher that is allowing Spamhaus to flag them as potential spam. It's not affecting Thunderbird or even my ISP's webmail. I was just curious as to why this suddenly began happening.

As Ervin and Tronde said, how extraordinary that we become so reliant on things like this forum. Reminds me of when Skype went down for a few days - PANIC!

Anyway, just to throw my two shiny new pennies in, I've not had any notifications since 17 October and I just checked one thread to see that a reply was posted on 22nd October.

Something definitely amiss.

FWIW, I switched to daily, it worked temporarily. Switched back to daily to see what happens.

If fix involves money, I will be happy to donate. The value of this forum is priceless to me.

Don't know if this helps any, Chris.

In Controls/List Subscriptions I noticed that the Instant Notification checkbox was unchecked for all my subscribed topics. I checked them all, moved to page 2, checked them all etc, for five pages worth. Then I went back to page 1 and noticed they were again unchecked. I checked them all, refreshed the page and they became unchecked.

For the time being I have switched to daily notification to see if that works.

Is this issue affecting everyone? I get the impression from some threads I am following that there is a good dialogue going back and forth, hinting that notification may be working for some.

I've been following threads by clicking on the "New Posts" link. I'm still not getting any notifications. I'm sure Chris will sort it out eventually.

I'll try to get this issue resolved this week. Sorry for the hassle, fellows... I'll probably seek professional help, but one way or the other we'll get it fixed somehow.
