Re: Forum mailings

For some reason my NBN Forum daily digests have stopped.  Anyone know why?

Re: Forum mailings

Same here since around 26/10/10, but thought it best to ask our IT team about our spam filters first (which I finally did this morning, waiting for response).

I receive subscribed topic emails, but not the forum digest.  I also tried the send email even if empty option.

Re: Forum mailings

Our IT team say that the emails are not being blocked by our spam filter.

This seems to be widespread. JNCC are aware.

Re: Forum mailings

I speculated off-forum that there was a date correlation between the forum digests disappearing and tougher anti-spam measures being put in place (see here). Of course, correlation is not causation!

Re: Forum mailings

Ahem. Yes, Teresa is right, it was caused by me upgrading the anti-spam measures. I thought I'd tested everything and had absolutely no idea the digests would be affected, of all things. Anyway, it should be sorted out now. Very sorry for the inconvenience everyone. That'll teach me to upgrade something on a Friday, especially when one's other half is likely to give birth over the weekend, which she did, thus triggering several weeks of paternity leave.

Re: Forum mailings

Ah, congratulations Charles & co. Hope all is well.

The digests are indeed working again now at least for me.

Re: Forum mailings

Ditto on the congrats.

Digests working here too, and I cannot recall seeing any spam posts for a while either.

So well done Charles on many counts!
