1. Due to issues with external spam filters, QQ is currently unable to send any mail to Microsoft E-mail addresses. This includes any account at live.com, hotmail.com or msn.com. Signing up to the forum with one of these addresses will result in your verification E-mail never arriving. For best results, please use a different E-mail provider for your QQ address.
    Dismiss Notice
  2. For prospective new members, a word of warning: don't use common names like Dennis, Simon, or Kenny if you decide to create an account. Spammers have used them all before you and gotten those names flagged in the anti-spam databases. Your account registration will be rejected because of it.
    Dismiss Notice
  3. Since it has happened MULTIPLE times now, I want to be very clear about this. You do not get to abandon an account and create a new one. You do not get to pass an account to someone else and create a new one. If you do so anyway, you will be banned for creating sockpuppets.

    This is a good idea. After problem solved, announce and send an e-mail of announcement to direct to an auto request page.

    Anyway, I finally finished checking 10 pages of threads for missed updates, it was very bad, especially because I accidentally opened alerts and they disappeared, so I had to check all of them.

    Sending all the alerts again could be seen as alot of traffic from one ip and get it flagged again.

    The admins have announced they know the cause. I don't think further reports of 'I use Gmail and I'm affected too' are of use.

    (That said, if you have something new to report - such as if you affected and you are on a email provider that hasn't be mentioned previously, or if you're on Gmail and not affected - don't let me stop you.)

    Wanted to drop by and say I just noticed this is affecting tutanota emails as well, so this is a pretty universal issue, not just gmail.

    Self-hosted email, affecting me too.

    In case it helps, there hasn't even been a connection attempt from QQ's domain after Jul 27.

    Discovered the issue by getting here via threadmarks, gmail user, same date of 'not getting new notifications' as the others.

    Not getting any Email updates, thought the stories I follow stopped updating together all of a sudden but it seems I'm not the only one not getting the OP email updates (I watched all the threads I follow with OP notifications and I receive none so far).

    Maybe a pinned mod post saying this? As more people notice this issue, this thread will be more and more packed- that might cut down on the people going TLDR and posting anyway.

    Maybe even worth putting on the top bar. (We've had previous mail delivery issues included there before.)

    Does anyone have any idea why the notifications are not coming? Could someone from the staff tell us what the problem is and how long it will take to solve it?

    Good idea. ultima333, alethiophile? Maybe as one of those floating notifications that shows up as the top-post on every page of the thread?

    Still no connection attempts since 2023/07/27 10:21 GMT+2.

    By the way, this means that it's not a spam filter rejection issue. It's something with QQ's email setup in that it isn't even attempting to send an email.

    So looking at the banner I apparently misunderstood it. I thought that by changing my email to Proton mail I could get email alerts for the threads I've been following, but I still don't get anything. Any progress on getting the problem fixed?

    Same issue on gmail.

    I also have the same issue over at alternatehistory. I haven't recieved an email notifications there since 2019. I've told the mods about this back then and they said they had no idea why it's like that.

    I guess I'll keep the watched thread permanently open on my browser then.

    TIL that my lack of AH.com notifications is not just that I have nothing to get notified about.

    (It's probably that too, but I was always wondering why I was getting nothing at all instead of, like, a slow trickle or something.)

    That is endemic and shared with SB, SV, and I suspect QQ too.

    For that problem, the solution is go into the section "Watched Threads", open the threads in tabs, and one after the other first unsubscrive/unwatch the thread and then re-put the thread on "Watched - Send me Notifications".

    Strange. For me, when I stop getting update notifications of the trifeca AH/SV/SB that solution I posted works for me... of course, it hinges on the mail provider not deciding that the Forum Notifications are spam and thus independently deciding to blacklist said Forums (problem solved via passing to gmail, it has less issues).

    Quick question: Is there any (hopefully free) mail provider that still works with QQ notifications?

    I'd like to set up an account and have it resend mails coming from QQ to my regular gmail account while this issue is sorted out.
