Dear Magic Café:

Is there any way I can be alerted by e-mail when someone responds to a posting of mine? I seem to recall that you used to be able to do that; I don't see it in the 'Edit Preferences' section.

Bato, this has been asked and answered many times but here's the answer one more time. If you start a topic, before you submit you'll see a box under the posting window that says " Notify me by email when replies are posted" click that box and submit. Every time someone posts to that topic, you'll get an email alert.

You must be the originator of the topic to use this feature.

It does not work for AOL users.

That's because AOL will not receive any emails from TheMagicCafe. It is why we no longer allow new registratons with AOL.

Does the Café ever send out important emails that I'm not getting?

Maybe it's time to give the Café a new email address. Who do I talk to to change it?

PM me with your new email address and I'll change it for you, stoneunhinged.

Dave and Dynamike, just an FYI: AOL does receive emails from the Café. The problem is, people from the Café who have requested these email notifications keep marking them as spam. Because of this, now AOL automatically puts emails from the Café into your spam folder.

Mary, maybe I misunderstood but this is what Gene said about AOL.

Quote:
In addition to blocking new registrations using AOL email addresses, it has also become necessary to block all outgoing emails from the Café to members having AOL email addresses on file. Emails are simply not getting through to AOL and are clogging the server's mail queue. Unfortunately, blocking those emails also means those members cannot change their registered email addresses by themselves. This will affect almost 4,000 Café members.

If you are an AOL user, you will no longer receive emails from the Café to alert you to new private messages, topic reply notifications, or any other email normally sent by the Café, regardless of your preference settings. That is, if you were even getting those emails at all lately.



He said emails were not getting through to AOL. Doesn't really matter. The bottom line is if they've got AOL. they can't use the notify feature.

I was unaware of that, Mary. Thank you for letting me know.
