email notification of PMs???

Post by ljs123 » Thu Jul 19, 2018 1:25 pm

I have a few questions about VW 2.0 regarding notification of PMs.
At the old VW I would get an email whenever someone sent me a PM on the VW site. This is not happening for me on VW 2.0.
So my questions are below.

Is this not possible at VW 2.0?
Is there some sort of setting that I have to manipulate to make this happen?
Any suggestions?

I'm sorry if this topic has already been addressed, but I have not seen it come up.
I'm still not comfortable at 2.0 yet. Maybe someday?
Thank you all for your help,
Lee

Select the User Control Panel in the drop-down under your username. Then click on the "Board Preferences" tab, then "Edit Notification Options." There you can check the box to receive e-mail when someone sends you a private message. This isn't turned on by default. Send me a PM when you've done this and we can test it.

Thank you JB.
Your directions worked.
I received notification of your PM.

I hope this helps some one else.

New issue with notification of PMs.
I set up my notifications as instructed and I started to get emails when I had a PM. I recently had a PM but did not get an email. Has anyone else had this problem?

I will look into this Wednesday. I changed the "from" address for notifications from my personal one to a "no reply" address, and the AWS mail server might have choked on that.
