    Your settings look fine on our side. You might want to verify that they are not going into your gmail spam folder. You should add as a contact in your gmail contacts as well since that can sometimes help prevent the spam filters from catching the emails.

    FWIW, I also do not receive notifications for most of my watched threads. This has been the case for several months. Perhaps something broke with the most recent vBulletin upgrade?

    On the other hand, I receive emails on all subscribed sections and replies to any thread in which I post.

    Amahdy: As a test, create a Yahoo mail box, and set that as your default. I'm wondering if the email notifications would start coming through.

    the answer to this issue is always the same, the e-mail provider is failing to deliver them. If you change the e-mail in your account to a Hotmail or Gmail account (not Yahoo or AOL) you'll see the e-mails will arrive, albeit in the junk folder.

    As "Brad" said I'm using Gmail .
    I think I have detected the bug but I'm not sure if you guys have access to the source code or maybe request a bug-fix or upgrade from vBulltion :
    >the user receive notification about "first" reply in the topic and never receive other notifications until he visits the thread;
    >>for some reason when the user input a reply, he is considered as "haven't visited thread yet" : this hapens by considering his input as a "reply" and he should reload the thread or re-open it to be able to receive updates.
    here is the sequence chart:

    should be:
    my input = subscibed >>> reply1 >>> email notification >>> reply2, 3 ..etc & no more notifications until visiting the thread

    what happens:
    my input = subscibed [BUG=> considered as reply so no more notifications until visiting the thread], broke this by reload the thread, re-open .. re-visit ... etc .

    HACK: because u r a (super mod.) then u should normally receive notifications about everything happening like "reply" , "new thread" ... etc and this is immediate and doesn't follow any rule mentioned before.

    JPNYC: do u have any log that demonstrate that there is an email delivery happened ? maybe I'm wrong with this bug .
