For shits and grins, I just enabled emails. For me anyway, emails are working. I just got several for a watched thread. I will leave it enabled all day and be irritated with amount of emails I will be receiving just to see.

@2WhiteWolves and @5150sick there are several places you need to have enabled in your account settings. The first is on the Account Details and the second is on Preferences. Have you tried turning them off and hitting save, then turning them on and hitting save? Are you using a computer or a phone? I'm using a computer
So strange and funny. For the two people who want to get emails are unable and those who don't the emails work :teehee:

Thank you, Gopher. Yes, tried what you said several several several times on computer and phone. I'll retry and add in deleting bookmark.

Hey, how about creating a temporary account and see if I'd get a confirmation email this way. As Gopher said for shits and grins to see if it would work. What do you think @5150sick , could we give it a whirl? Could always delete the new account.

@gopher_byrd may I ask what email provider you are using, like yahoo, outlook, Gmail, Firefox, not an actual email address. Same with you @5150sick . There has to be something in common that isn't allowing us to get the emails.

IDK :gaah:

This is a long shot, but try it just for shits and giggles. Go into any thread you are currently following, scroll up to the top. There should be a button that says Unwatch. Click that, then leave the thread, go back into it, and this time the button will say watch, click it and it will pop up a box where you can choose 'And receive email notifications' then click the watch button in that box. Then see if you start getting emails for that thread. Maybe worth a shot?

I'm using my yahoo account for VU mail.

And now I'm trying desperately to stop the emails... šŸ¤£

Another long shot and not meant to question anyone's intelligence, have you checked your spam folders... gmail will show numbers of spam in their web app so I know when I get a spam mail. However, yahoo doesn't show numbers so I have to click it to see any spam I have there and I don't always remember to check spam there. I just checked my yahoo spam folder and found a VU notification there.

I stopped receiving all notifications a semi-short while back, and my settings are correct to receive. No threads and no PMs. Zip, nada, zilch.

I figured between that and the expired security certificate, that's been the case for at least a year now, that maybe the forum is self-sustaining at this point.

I have NO IDEA if that's the case, but updating a cert is a light lift, so it wouldn't surprise me.

I just make sure to bop in every once in a while now, knowing I won't receive emails.

Well, here are my findings from a test I preformed last night.....
I went ahead and created a new account AmberEyesWolfie, first I used the email client of Google so a Gmail address. I resent the confirmation email from VU over 5 times and did NOT RECEIVE one of the confirmation emails.
Deecided to change email client to Yahoo, push the send confirmation email and yup first send received the confirmation email !
So, my findings shows Gmail is blocked or is blocking VU emails......Gmail is playing dirty with me and my VU email alerts/notifications :cuss2: :cuss:

Dang it, can't edit post grrr....
Going to change email address on this account and hopefully I'll receive the email confirmation and be able to login with 2WhiteWolves, if not, I guess I will start to become AmberEyesWolfie.

Well at least now you know what the problem is and can fix it, but shame on Google if they are actively blocking emails from this domain.:mad:
It would not surprise me that Google would block something vaping related. We are all bad boys and girls here in the eyes of the powers that be... :cuss2: :cuss:

Yup, and I just confirmed my new email address with this 2WhiteWolves, so YEY I'm still 2WhiteWolves, lol. And, I'll start receiving VU alerts/notification emails :bliss:
Yay! Wolfie gets to stay Wolfie!!!

Considering the tons of email I get from vape-related sites, I'm guessing it's more related to the security certificate than the topic.

I wish they'd block some OTHER shit though. ;)
