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.Why are ones and zeros so complicated? Linear Video Editing was easier. Downloading & streaming are two different things.
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
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.Why are ones and zeros so complicated? Linear Video Editing was easier. Downloading & streaming are two different things.
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
I will check if the emails bounce back to my server.
Yep. My server can't send to your email address:
This is the mail system at host videohelp.com.
I'm sorry to have to inform you that your message could not
be delivered to one or more recipients. It's attached below.
For further assistance, please send mail to postmaster.
If you do so, please include this problem report. You can
delete your own text from the attached returned message.
The mail system
<videobruce email>: host dnvrco...[69.134...]
refused to talk to me: 554 dnvrco-cmimta19 esmtp ESMTP server not available
Yep. Probably blacklisted by the email server.
No roadrunner.com or rr.com email addresses works.

I have no idea why it's blocked.
My server 18.104.22.168 is not blocked by Spamhaus Zen or SURBL.
Reverse DNS works:
RDNS for 22.214.171.124 is: [videohelp.com] - (PTR record - 126.96.36.199.in-addr.arpa)
IP Address for videohelp.com is: [188.8.131.52]
SUCCESS! - Forward Confirmed Reverse DNS is CORRECT!
The IP address for the reverse lookup name matches the original IP

Does it work now?
Yes? or maybe not...
Nope. Still blocked by Roadrunner.
I haven't received an e-mail notifications for many months now, and Instant notification by email is still my Default Thread Subscription Mode. Is it because of my e-mail address as well?
said: 550 5.7.1 Unfortunately, messages from [184.108.40.206] weren't sent. Please contact your Internet service provider since part of their network is on our block list (S3140).
The same thing probably happened to me then. Would using a different e-mail address fix the problem?
It might be one user.
Edit: The complaints rate is < 0.1% but still blocked.
Edit2: I will set up a "Junk Mail Reporting Program" and they might unblock my server
Edit3: It doesn't work. Don't use outloooook!!!

It works now!
It should work now. I'm using a secondary server until microsoft unblocks me.
Roadrunner/Spectrum has finally removed the email block. Outlook emails should work but they probably ends up in the Junk folder.
Yay! it works for me as well. Thank you.
Great! It just took a year to remove the spectrum ban.....
It's because you are too slow.
