For those who don't get PF emails

  1. Sep 13, 2011 #1
    I've been tweaking some email settings and I'd like those who don't get PF emails, or have those emails end up in the spam box, check to see if things have improved. Please keep me updated. I believe my fixes should have worked.

    I got my first one after almost a year without any. I will let you know if they do not continue, and Thanks, it must not have been easy to find and fix, if you don't mind a brief explanation would be appreciated.

    It had to do with an incorrect SPF setting. Your provider was likely blocking the emails thinking it was spam.

    I've noticed today that I've been getting notifications that were supposedly sent a few days ago. These are the relevant header lines of one of the delayed messages:

    I hadn't had problems before, but it now appears I'm not getting replies. I see some replies are winding up in gmail's spam file before my email client sees them.

    Amazingly, the problem cleared itself in a couple of days. It fixed itself before I had to dive into Google's spam innards and figure out how to defeat it. Do you do magic, Greg?
