Re: erratic email notification


I know my email arrives faster than my [sign in to see URL] company, whatever they use is horrible! I can get an email sent to me and my husband from our son, within minutes of him sending it. His [sign in to see URL] least an hour or more later. emoticon

Re:


Well I have had my board with you since Jan 2006 with the same ISP and never had an email issue until now so somthing has changed, I posted on the forum, ticked the box for notification of replies and guess I got one reply notification out of 4 people who posted a reply !!!!!!

Re:


Who is your email provider? I just want to see if it is the same as mine. We need to figure where the issue is happening.

I would not think it would be your ISP. I suppose that is possible if they changed speeds on you. That actually happened to me a little over a year ago. I am with Time Warner. We re-did my account and now things are going well.

The fact that you are getting notifications means that they are getting through, or at least some are getting through. When you say you got one reply notification out of 4 people who posted a reply are you saying that after the first notification, you went to your board and read that reply and then there were 3 more replies after that, but you didn't get anymore notifications? That would be more problematic.

I often click on subscribe to each thread every time I read it, but that is just from long habit when there were issues years ago.

This is a good question. If there were four replies since the last time you read a topic, you are only supposed to receive an email for the first of those four replies. Once you look at the topic again, you're supposed to receive an email for the first of those new replies.

However, what raised my eyebrows is the repsonse that was given by the ISP:

quote:

The reason your mail was blocked was because your envelope sender was both non-null and not-valid. Thus sender-verification failed and so we prevented the mail coming in since we would have nowhere to send bounce reports later.
If you insist on using a noreply@ address, simply ensure it is deliverable in some manner (to a black hole will do) or else send these messages with a null envelope-sender.

If you choose the latter option, be warned though that we (and many other email providers) verify From: headers etc as well, because that is a further anti-spam measure, as such the best option is simply to make noreply@deliverable in some fashion.



I know that some email providers won't deliver if it's coming from a "noreply" address. This doesn't necessarily mean that the address it's coming from is literally "noreply@[sign in to see URL]". It means that the address it's coming from doesn't actually exist, which makes it look like it is unable receive replies. Without getting into a big technical explanation, the ISP's response made me wonder if there is something Thor can do to prevent this situation, so I sent him an email last night about it. He did respond, but we're stilltrying to sort it out.
