    Just had one story not send an email at an update, surrounded on either side who did.

    then another story without an email afterwards : /

    then I DID get an email for this thread updating.

    I use gmail.

    Yeah, not receiving any again. Will have to see if it fixes itself in time, given the server move.

    Adding my voice to the chorus. I haven't gotten any emails since this morning despite threads updating since then.

    It’s especially weird because I get them for this thread, for every post.

    but I haven’t gotten any other threads since this morning.

    I would say that I'm getting 2-3 email notifications for every 5 notifications that I should be getting

    Last email notice for me was about 16 hours ago, nothing since then despite lots of alerts. Guess I'll be going back to "check alerts daily" mode again. (It was so nice not to have to do that for the last week...)

    I’m not sure if it’s fixed but on AOL I just got 8 notifications from threads I follow at the same time hours after they updated so I can only assume the mail issue is part of the whole server change deal and that it’ll eventually fix itself like the rest of the temporary stuff that happened.

    I started getting emails for Conversation Messages again as of just under 2 hours ago!

    EDIT: Actually, just realized I got emails two hours ago, and then didn't get emails for Conversation Messages I got 50 minutes ago.

    Not sure why its so off-and-on again.

    Last received email was 3:02am EST today. Somewhere between 3:03am and 3:54am emails stopped working again for Gmail.

    I had to use a backup code due to not getting an email code for the 2 step auth. I still have yet to receive the email about using said code as well.

    [Edit]
    Oh, I just got the emails now. At...
    [waiting a few seconds...]
    ...An hour ago exactly.

    I just woke up to like a dozen QQ emails in my inbox, with some threads getting multiple ones but from different posts. So apparently there was some sort of backlog?

    I have no problem and I am receiving them (helped by a two weeks long line blackout from my provider): today is the first day I have been able to gain access.

    Like others, it's gone to being erratic: some mails get through, others don't.

    It’s random for me. 2 threads I watched updated within minutes of each other but only got an alert for one.

    For what it's worth, I received email alerts normally throughout yesterday and there was no "morning burst" today. So whatever issue that was causing that has been solved for me, at least for now.

    I too have received an email alert for every PM I've gotten in the past two days now, so fingers crossed that it might be fixed and was just a byproduct of the server transfer!

    Same on not getting emails
    After the sudden fix, for a while everything was A-OK, then it got weird by some mails arriving, and others not
    Now no new mails for notifications
    As of this post last mail was...almost full 13 hours ago
    It's understandable that things got jostled a bit during server transfer, here's to hoping it gets fixed

    Slight update: I got an email alert for a PM early this morning just six hours ago. But when I responded to it and then got a message back, it didn't send me an email alert.

    Really not sure why its so 50/50 and only working some of the time.

    From what I can see, the last email I received from QQ was this Thursday, so at least for me the emails are busted again.

    I'm getting about 50% of my alerts which is almost more annoying than none.
