    Sounds like an email account issue. Did one of the reply alert emails get accidentally put in spam instead of trash, training your email account to do the same with all?

    The EDCF software can send you an alert if you chose for it to in your settings, but it shouldn't have anything to do with where it goes.

    You need to put the EDCF email address into your contacts so that it is not affected by the spam filter.

    It is an issue with your email provider classing emails from EDCF as spam for some reason, adding it to your contacts will help, also marking them as "not spam" can also help.

    I've seen that if I delete too many unread emails from someone that they will automatically be added to my spam filter. This has happened to me a couple of times with EDCF notifications, especially when I'm using tapatalks notifications to monitor and not the built in email notification system. Just do what Dr Jekell suggested and all should be fine system. If you use tapatalk, you may want to adjust your email notifications in your forum preferences.

    Still happening and entries marked 'not spam' are still going to spam. This is not affecting my other forums, just EDCF. still looing into other possibilities.

    We have a lot of people with email addresses that are not valid. Bouncing emails make it look like we are a spam server so a few ISP's think we are a spam site. Some of the problem was disposable email address in the past.

    I don't know if that is affecting you or not. I have had to explain in the past that I am not spamming myself.

    When we did the mass email it looks like thousands are non valid email addresses. It looks like certain people create accounts using non throw away email addresses and change them to throw away addresses after getting in while others have changed email addresses but had it set up to allow emails from the forum.

    We also have found some people who have email notifications set up for watched threads and such and those emails are bouncing. It makes us look like a spam server. It will take weeks to go through the bad email addresses.

    Just thought I would let it me known, not a big problem on this end. Still getting used to 'retired' with time on my hands.

    I don't have near the time to do that and probably won't for a very long time. The real damage has already been done. I have things I absolutely had to do six months ago that I never had a chance to get started on.

    I have thousands of them now and it will take a long time to clean them up. I have also been cursed at a few times when I have told people a throw away email address creates problems for us if they turn notifications on.

    I have things I couldn't fail to do two weeks that I have not started on as well.

    Can you just turn off email notifications? I find it easier to simply go to the main page And look at my alerts.
