Forum e-mails (and password resets) not working --migration?
« on: March 03, 2017, 12:40:13 AM »
An hour or two ago I was trying to use a password recovery mail to log into my account from a new machine.  I still haven't gotten the reset mail.  Verified in my forum profile page that I was checking the right e-mail account, and checked both Inbox and Spam folder. 

Did a search for "mustache" and was able to find my last reset attempt from some time back.  Also noticed from that search that my last thread update e-mail I have is from 2/21.  I know that thread has more recent activity, so I suspect it's all outbound mail and not just password resets.

My e-mail account is with Outlook.com.  Mentioning because sometimes if a mail server winds up on a black list, it can get bit-bucketed by some recipients but not others, depending on which lists are subscribed to by whom.  That's only speculation, mind you.  It's been forever since I had an idea about how that stuff worked, and it was a vague idea even then.

Can you check your spam folder, and report back here if the emails are/aren't in there?

If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.

Nope.  Not there.

Acknowledged. Thanks. Passing it up the chain.
