Has anyone else missed and/or not gotten DW comment alerts in email? I realized I was getting msgs only sporadically, and then they stopped altogether somewhere around early November. I've gotten notifies of replies on other journals, though, but that only since early December. Since then, nothing, and I can tell I've gotten comments because I've seen them here. Just no emails. I checked my settings and whatnot, so I'm stumped. Anyone else having this issue, or is it just me (again)?

Figured it out. Somehow my settings were changed so I had to opt in on getting email. That's not the kind of thing I would've turned off, so I'm guessing there was an upgrade and that flag got switched. Who knows, but we'll see now if I suddenly start getting emails again.

If you have a minute and don't mind, drop a comment so I can test this theory. Thanks!

ETA2: ahahah shoot me it works now. yay! thanks for the help, everyone. (I figured out that while I'd changed the email... I hadn't confirmed it. Once I did that, now I am back to regularly scheduled emails. It's been that kind of a day, really.)

I haven't noticed any problems. Try changing to a secondary email and see what happens?

My care2 email started blocking lj automatically when they got a large number of emails ina short time frame and there was no alert.

It could be one of the DW mail servers has been blacklisted? Or the comments are setting off a different filter to the password reset one.

It would be interesting to see what a different host will do. :)

Who is your current host with? If you don't mind me asking. Depending on who it is I might have some whitelisting ideas.

Also I'd recommend lodging a support ticket with DW as they would have better ideas about the specifics etc.

I don't think switching domain names is going to help but I think I might know what it is - comments.dreamwidth.org might be causing the problem which would explain why you get the password resets but not the comments? (the reply to address has changed to allow us to reply to comments via email and that might be where the problem is coming in.)

http://help.1and1.com/e-mail-c37589/webmail-c75820/troubleshooting-c85106/add-entries-to-the-whitelist-in-webmail-a757582.html- could you see what happens if you whitelist both dreamwidth.org and comments.dreamwidth.org domains?

(additionally it's also possible to set up a rule in gmail so that everything from dreamwidth is automatically forwarded to your personal address.

Also - I hear you on the gmail! Just I haven't worked out a webmail interface that works as well for me with the threading etc and other features. /o\ googledocs, google calendar etc have all become really incorporated into my online usage and it's difficult to find an alternative for general group projects without building it myself / paying for the service.

test, check

My spouse and I just watched an episode of Columbo in which the murder takes place at a winery.

I got so used to giving you test comments that now I feel the urge to do it again! Also I just had reason to link someone to your post about devil's advocate stuff. Thank you for that!
