E-mail notifications.

Postby eddydevries » Thu Mar 19, 2009 8:36 am

Since a few days ago, I notice something strange with the e-mails I got concerning "New reaction in 'this' topic".

They mention topics which hasn't been changed, and other topics where an answer was posted (and I was "subscribed to") weren't mentioned.

Has there been any change in the "topics-id", so that the wrong notifications are sent?
Or has there something else been the matter?

I'd guess some spam message triggered the notification, and the spam message got removed before you got the chance to read the topic. As for not getting notifications from the topics you're subscribed to.. sorry, no ideas about that at the moment.

Not exactly related to the initial post, but the topic is right, so ... :)

The forum reply notifications that I get via e-mail have apparently had a somewhat different format lately. As a result, they show in my e-mail app with the "From" column being empty, and the subject is truncated like this:

Topic reply notification - "Wireless Euro bil

The same notification, received on my cellphone, has "Kein Absender" (No Sender) as the sender info, and the same truncated subject as above. The message body starts with something that looks like part of the header, e.g. =?UTF-8?B?b etc. No idea yet whether this is something that my e-mail provider does or whether this is anything the sender could fix. Right now I'm just mildly annoyed ...

FWIW, the reply notifications now go a different mail service/address that I use, and they look just fine.
