Mine was checked, too! And I don't remember checking it. I think that's what fixed it for me.

It worked, I got mail!

Linda, go to "my trackers" then click on start. Click on account/email preferences. Click on the middle tab for emails. There is a whole list of emails you can choose to receive. Near the very bottom there is one that says "don't email me again". Even though you may have other boxes checked this last one will over ride it. Hope this is your problem.

I went into the email prefences and near the bottom was a box that said never email me again. This was checked even though I had other boxes checked as well. I unchecked it and will see if that was my issue. They also said that if your email has ever bounced this box will automatically get checked.

Linda, I also get email in my sparkmail and I will get emails saying I have a comment or goodie just no emails saying there are replies.

All is well with my acct/e-mail pref. So I guess the next step is checking with hotmail and see if they are blocking them for some reason.
Again, thanks my sparkangels Love ya emoticon

Here's an article from tech support, but I didn't bother reading it when I read the last post. Sounds like the last advice might just fix the problem.

So glad this is a topic. I have not been getting any either, and I mentioned it on another thread last week some time. FOUND SOMETHING just now when I looked where Kathymag said to look:

On top left of start page... when you click the tab she mentioned, ALSO check the 2nd tab - email. There is a sentence in there that says "IF you are not getting emails, but you have entered a valid email address, click this link to reset your email and you will start receiving them tomorrow". SO I am going to try that.

Okay - 2 places to check:

On your "start" page - look in Account/Email Preferences and make sure your email is still there.

On your own Spark Page (where all your info and photos are).....way down at the bottom in very small print is a hyperlink to edit privacy settings page. At the very bottom of that page is a box to be notified by email. Make sure that's checked (as well as any of the other settings that you want).

So - it's needle in the haystack time......

I'm gonna check my own profile now, so I'm really talking out the side of my ear right now - but do you think that your email address disappeared out of your profile info?

Just guessing - next step: contact SP.????

Gabby, that is really creepy about the ads. If there is anything I could fix that would be it. I don't know enough about computers but it almost sounds like they have added something to our computers to track where we go. Did we give them permission?

I don't get any of them either Linda. I used to get them but since I came back to spark in Nov I don't get anything. I double checked and everything seems to be checked off.

That is really strange that you used to get them and now you don't.

i'm not getting them much either. there is a team that I have not been to forever that I only want the digest from and that one fills my email with notifications.

i do like getting them. i think i get the new topic ones fairly well though.

I just went into that subscribe thingy and it shows that I am subscribed to every singel topic in here, so I don't know what the heck is happening, but I will just continue to hit subscribe to while I am here today. This sucks.

I'm testing here....you're right about the box underneath your reply needing to be checked off. Also - on the previous page there are three icons - "Reply", "Create a New Topic" and "Subscribe to this Discussion". Just for yuks, how about hitting the subscribe thingy and see what happens.

Beyond that, check your junk folder in your email - it could be that your email provider - in it's infinite wisdom has decided that our replies qualify as junk??????

Hope either one of these solves the problem.

Ok, there is a little box under this message section and it is either ticked or not ticked...mine is ticked so I am assuming that means I want an email to be sent to me when anyone replies to this topic
So why the heck don't I get an e-mail????

@BRB - look to the left of this and scroll down to "Site Quick Links" and then click on My Teams make sure everything is checked. Also when you reply there is a sentence just below the reply box that says "I want an email to be sent when anyone replies to this topic" and make sure that's checked.

I don't get notified of all of them sometimes like the daily check in. What I hate are all the ads loading. Also, sometimes when I'm typing replies, the keyboard freezes and I have to wait for it. Linda said she had the same problem and it only happens here so I know it's this site.

They're making a fortune off of ads. What's really creepy is that I'll be shopping for something in Amazon or another site, and when I come in here there is always an ad for what I was looking at towards the top of the page.

ANGELLINDA - I haven't had any difficulties personally, and I do know ERIN1957 has been having some...."challenges." She then signed on to "hundreds" of notifications yesterday.

So, it's not just you, and yet I don't believe she ever knew for sure what was up. Not much help, and I hope the problem is solved for you soon.

I woke up yesterday morning and had no notifications from 17DD in my mailbox at all. I thought ... hmmmm quiet day today. During the day, still nothing and last night nothing!!! So this morning, I turn on the comp and still nothing...so I thought I would come in and ask if this has happened to any of you guys. I spent about 5 hours Monday night answering posts, so it isn't like I don't post lol. Been doing this a long time, just confused about it yesterday.

Have a good day all. Hope I have some when I get home from work tonight...makes for a lonely night lol
