    Lately all Emails are either slow to come or do not come at all. I used to get them like clock work.
    Its my daily and instant emails. Anyone else have this problem? And can the issue be fixed soon?

    For me, email notifications of private messages arrive many hours later.

    I get notifications sometimes a DAY OR TWO after they are posted. And the "flagged for review" problem...ARRGGGGHH! I am giving serious thought to moving over to PhysicsForums. I've tried to be patient and loyal but the problems that came with this software upgrade are becoming too much for me to handle much longer...

    Yup. Same here. Except I have gotten some not at all and 3 days late. And you are correct that review glitch is upsetting....

    I got notified about this post at 09:50. To me if it's over 20 min. it's late and a big problem.

    I'd like to know that something is being done about it?

    A joke you posted klown ?4 days ago just came through. And 1 you posted 2 days ago just came through. I am confused and behind on that instant notification. That's why I have not visited the joke site. And some daily emails just came through the timing is way off. I used to read the daily emails when I woke up in the morning. Not random times through out my day. And PM's, yeesh! Those are not instant anymore at the moment.

    I am just as frustrated as anyone by the problems with email delays, and we would like an explanation, but I will also point out that some forums, at least one major forum, doesn't even send email alerts. Too much bandwidth, to much administration, or what not. Strangely, I am OK with that over there becasue I don't expect the email, and when I have a feeling that there is going to be a reply that I am waiting for, I go look.

    Well here, sometimes I am logged in. And stay away and once I read a piece of mail I like. I come back. Then go away and do it again. Most annoying is the PM. I like to know what's there when it first comes in.

    I just got this email notification at 4:10 PM today. That's more than 24 hours late. Has anyone PM'd the Admin. yet? I want to know that this problem is getting some priority attention.

    Well I thought this thread would do. I have not PM'ed any yet about the issue. But it seems there is a small number who is posting issues here. So maybe its just us in the thread so far with this problem.

    See 1 mod visited without posting, strange. How about a mod address the issues.

    What are mods supposed to do about it? It's the owners of the website that installed the software and we (or at least I) have no means of contacting them. Try asking James.

    This is beyond my power to fix, so again I'm going to have to refer you upstairs to Plazma Inferno!

    Update:

    We were under botnet attack and that was the reason why email server slowed down.
    Situation is under control. We are also working on solving problems with spam overload. It should be done in next few days.

    Sorry for any inconvenience and thank you for understanding.

    Thanks P.I.! For looking. Will your spam solutions prohibit in some way the use of cell phones? Or use those irritating random code scripts?

    No, it won't. Everything stays the same, or better, hopefully.
