Not getting emails

Saturday, April 28, 2012

I'm getting barely a quarter of my email notifications. All of the settings are correct, so I have no idea what's happening. I've put a post on the tech site, so I hope an answer is coming soon. In the meantime, I apologize for missing new member greetings and not responding to posts.

    Don't worry, Spark People has been upgrading the software the last few days. So, this probably nothing more than a temporary "glitch".

    I'm not sure what it going on. Some days I get a lot of emails and some days I get very few. But what I am reading on several of the threads indicates that it is NOT just us.

    I was getting most of my emails.... I think, but on one forum when I clicked on the email I got a error message from Spark. Now all of a sudden it's OK. Just glad to know you are okay. Hope you are having a good weekend.

    Yes, I've heard of this happening for the past couple of days. Guess we all need to go back in to check our settings!

    You're not the first to mention having this trouble. (I don't have any emails sent to me, so I don't see it.) As others have mentioned, sometimes going in and changing the settings can help. For example, turn them all off and save that. Then turn them all back on and save that. Give it a couple days and see if they start arriving again.

(Also check your browser's spam/junk folder. Given the volume of emails that are possible, some email services start blocking them for you as suspect spam - and you have to specifically mark them Not Spam.)

    That has happened to me a few times and I usually go in and clear everything out and then re-enter and that has taken care of it for me in the past.

    It's happening to me now too. I went to my e-mail account settings and the box that said "never e-mail me again" was checked. I know I didn't do it! It happened when the Spark page was changed. Hope they fix it soon!

    I think they are all coming to me. I am getting buried in e-mails. It is not unusual to get over 100 in a day. Hope your problem resolves itself soon.

    It happen to me so much that I changed emails and got a hotmail one just for Spark and now I get all my emails and haven't had any problems with it. Hope you get yours solved.

    It's happening to me right now. I also worry that people may think I am ignoring them. As a team leader I really dislike responding to members post so long after they post them. Hopefully tech will resolve the issue.

    It happened to me 2 weeks ago. I also checked me settings and everything was fine. You could try adding sparkmailer to your address book. I'm not sure if it was a coincidence, but I started getting mail the following day.

    I actually had a new member notification come through today as a regular email, no spark logo, no nothing, just the link. Strange.
