    I haven't been getting any e-mail notifications.
    Yes, I checked the address and the check boxes for notification.

    I don't block anything, messages my ISP (Spectrum) ID's as 'Spam' (usually incorrectly) are sent, marked as spam in the heading. They are not blocked here. I have checked their web site to see if anything is placed elsewhere, but not so.
    Why are ones and zeros so complicated? Linear Video Editing was easier. Downloading & streaming are two different things.

    This has nothing to do with check-boxes ( normally for private messaging)

    Underneath the 'Messaging and Notification' heading you will see a 'Default Thread Subscription Mode'.

    Open the drop-down box to select the one you want. 'Instantly, using email' will give you an email notification AFTER your own post. You have to visit the forum, even if you do not post, to get more.

    I see no 'Messaging and Notification' under Settings.

  4. Go to the topic page. Just above the first post on the right you will see 3 choice options:
    Thread Tools, Search Thread & Display.
    Click Thread Tools. On the drop-down menu, choose Subscribe to this Thread.
    On the next page, you will see Notification Type (under Subscribe to Thread).
    Use the drop down menu to select one of the following:
    1) Through my control panel only
    2) Instant notification by email
    3) Daily updates by email
    4) Weekly updates by email
    Then click Add Subscription.

    Personally, I subscribe manually to a thread.
    Defaulting to getting an email when you make a casual response to a thread but you're not arsed if someone replies back is similar to being "spammed" (i.e. getting an unnecessary/unwanted email).

    Or as I already stated Settings > Forum >> Forum Settings to set this for ALL the threads you post to

    I do not ever recall making any adjustment to this. It is the default AFAIK

    I have that set that way as I do with any forum I register to, but nothing.
    It was set unchecled.

    To do it with every thread is too tedious and annoying and way too easy to forget to do. Anything I don't want to follow I can go back and uncheck, but most forums, if you don't respond the notifications cease anyway.

    As to the 1st method, it shows I'm already subscribed to this thread anyway.

    Well do, once more, check your profile and the email addr. There are two boxes. The one on the right serves to confirm the entry for the one on the left.

    You will have to enter your password to make any changes here.

    When my email changed, it was a simple matter to make those changes and notifications have always continued. As I said above, you only get one after your last post but once you visit the forum again, even without posting, you should get notifications for all threads you have contributed to unless to unsubscribe to that thread.

    Other than that I can only suggest you contact Baldrick to see if he is getting any 'delivery error' report from your entered email addr.

    Also go you your list of subscriptions to see if it lists the topics you have contributed to.

    If the list shows the topics, all, subject to the above comments, should be working from the forum's POV

  9. I will check if the emails bounce back to my server.

    No roadrunner.com or rr.com email addresses works.

    I have no idea why it's blocked.

    My server 95.211.211.134 is not blocked by Spamhaus Zen or SURBL.
    http://www.anti-abuse.org/multi-rbl-check-results/?host=95.211.211.134
    https://mxtoolbox.com/SuperTool.aspx?action=blacklist%3a95.211.211.134&run=toolpage

    Reverse DNS works:

    RDNS for 95.211.211.134 is: [videohelp.com] - (PTR record - 134.211.211.95.in-addr.arpa)
    IP Address for videohelp.com is: [95.211.211.134]
    SUCCESS! - Forward Confirmed Reverse DNS is CORRECT!
    The IP address for the reverse lookup name matches the original IP
