Email Notifications
« on: August 05, 2019, 10:47:01 PM »
I dont know where to go for help with this. I suddenly quit getting email notifactions when someone sends me a PM! Logged in for first time in over a month and suddenly see 6 unread messages I didnt know I had! I also never get email notifications when someone comments on my posts. I checked my spam in my email, nothing there. Nothing has changed. I dont know what to do other than just log into my account every day to make sure no one messaged me or posted a comment or question. Thanks for any help anyone can provide.

I have an update. When I stopped recieving email notifications, it was the exact same day I got a "critical security alert" email from google. I went to send an email that day, using the same iphone Ive been using for years, and for some reason google decided to block me from emailing anyone. It lied and said my password was wrong....I hadnt changed my password! So I log in on my computer and said it recently blocked an unauthorized user from sending an email. That was ME idiot! I have a couple other gmail accounts and google has done this before, so Ive picked up on what they are doing. So the only way Ive found to be able to continue using my email on my phone, even though Ive been using it on this phone for years and have changed absolutely nothing, is to go onto a computer and under the security tab, I have turn on unsecured access. Then I can continue to use my email account on my phone. I admit I do have an old iphone, but Ive been using this email on it for years, like I said. But google just randomly does this to me. So anyway, Ive restored access to my email and everything should be fine, I did that over a month ago, but google appears to be blocking odc emails from coming in, thats the only thing I can figure is happening. But it still doesnt explain why Ive NEVER received email notifications for comments on my posts. Can anyone help me figure this out? Sorry for the long explanation but it all needed to be explained.  ;D

PrizmGirl,

     Some websites blacklist "porn' and other websites that they believe have malicious content. You may need to Whitelist your account for ODC. If that does not work, try to find a different email source. That means you will need to change the email address listed on ODC to match the new email account. Your Internet Service Provider may have an email client other than Gmail. Go to their web site to see if there are any options.

It does show that it was checked already.  Must be gmail just messing with me as usual. I guess I will try and set up a new email elsewhere! Gmail has given me nothing but grief anyway.

Have you checked your spam folder?  You should be able to see it from either settings or folders.  It may be hidden, but you should still be able to see it by hovering over folders.

If your notifications are in fact there, you should add ourdollcommunity.com to your whitelist (email filter) then you should be able to see notifications again.

To be fair, I haven't gotten notifications of messages lately either... and then I signed on 2 minutes ago and saw that I didn't have any new messages. :laugh: But even when I do, I'm still not notified of them. I may have to check the email address with this account (I got a new phone for Christmas, so I lost access to half my email accounts :( ).

I get notified of private messages so I know the system is working.
