Hotmail? - Hotmail email accounts.

With the new software, you have the extra option of enabling Push Notifications instead - assuming you're not still on your old Vista laptop - you could try it and tell us what the future feels like!

I'm on a Mac. I enabled Push. Still don't get any notification emails like we used to.
Well, no, they won't be emails. They'll be something else. But how they show up on a mac is a mystery to me. On a phone they drift in at the top of the screen and (optionally) make a noise to annoy anyone within 20 feet.

Very strange. I have just had 4 notification emails for other threads, but none for this one.

If you allow push notifications then you will get a little pop up window at the bottom right of your screen any time a thread you are involved in is updated. It is the same info that appears in the little drop down box when you click the little bell on the top right

I've disabled all PUSH boxes. Theres more than enough interruptions on my screen.
I always got an email telling me there was a reply to a post I was involved in. I'm getting more, but not all of them.
Still, early days.

Can you please click on that and see what settings you have for emails? That may be what makes them start flowing again. And have you watched the threads you had a subscribed too or favorites in the old software? You will need to watch those you had saved.

Are you meaning they are just threads/posts without the forum listed?

Angie, its back to normal now, must have been a computer glitch but all the posts were in the 2" down the left side of the screen with the rest of the screen empty.
Its an adventure, isnt it?

Oh I don't like that. Don't like that at all. I don't want things popping up on my screen whenever. I want to go to my filtered UKW sub-mailbox that tells me that there has been a new post. Otherwise forget it. I haven't got time to remember which threads I have been posting in.
