    For some strange reason I'm still not getting email notifications from GamersOnLinux.

    Neither new posts, replys or anything else sends a notification to my gmail account.
    I am watching every forum for gaming... and I used to get them. Nothing goes to my SPAM folder either.

    Here are my preferences:

    I just noticed a bunch of filters in my Gmail from years ago. I deleted all of those... lets see what happens next.

    Century link has me on a new plan!

    I can receive E-mail but I can't send. It happened right before covid hit.
    I spent days online with century and got bub kiss.

    Once again, I didn't get any of your posts in email.
    I'm not sure if the forum is even sending emails to me.
    I'll check my information again... its really strange.

    Once was fortunate and had a GF named Caroline

    There was a song at the same time. Amazing!

    Nothing in my trash or junkmail. They just don't arrive in my inbox at all.
    A few years back they started showing up in my junkmail and I had to create a rule/filter to make them go to my inbox.
    I deleted that rule and now nothing.
    Do you think Google has blacklisted gamersonlinux.com notifications?

    AH HA!
    Just found one in my junkmail!!!???
    Why does this keep happening?

    I surely hope not. We are laughingly much bigger than Google.

    And CL won't answer you to tell you why? Might be time for a new Internet Provider? Kinda hope not chances are that you don't have a wide choice in the inner city where you live. Sorry Daniel, this doesn't look good.

    At this point I chalk it up to covid. Patti now needs a functional E-mail, so she has taken to the front lines of this battle.

    Some day we may actually get the service we pay for... but don't hold your breathe!

    Boo, send me an e-mail please. I suspect the problem is with GMail not liking our server. Google changed some of their mail policies, and I may need to do some tweaking.
