    no email from thread subscriptions

    I always subscribe to threads I start, and a few others. The latest one has had posts, but I've not received an instant email notifying me of them. Is there a limit on subscriptions that could be causing this? I've been subscribed to 36, although only a couple of them have any activity these days.

    Re: no email from thread subscriptions

    I do not know of any thread subscription limitation. I have over 7,000 as I've auto subscribed to any thread I've posted in. Maybe you forgot to subscribe (does it show in your subscription folder on UF?) or the mail ended up in your mailbox Spam folder ?

    Bapoumba, thanks. Yes, I doubled checked my UF subscriptions, to make sure I didn't check something besides instant. I checked spam after you suggested it, nothing from UF there. At least I know it's not a limit problem.

    OK. Do you have it in your subscription folder on UF ? Settings > Subscriptions.
    Have you subscribed to this one ? Did you get an email (I did) ?

    Edit : sorry, I'm done for today, it's past bedtime and I get up real early.

    Yes and yes. From the time stamps on both your post and my email, the email was delivered promptly. I'll have to see how it goes with the other threads I'm subscribed to. Maybe it was just a glitch. Thanks Bapoumba.

    You are welcome. I'd vote for gremlins, but that's just me

    How do I autosubscribe to get instant email notification to threads I've started?
