Follow by Email not working

  1. I have a "Follow By Email" widget for my blog, and have signed up myself under two separate emails to make sure it works okay. I have never received any emails to confirm the email subscription and have never received any emails when I update my blog. I have like 330 followers and am worried none of them are getting email updates. I'm seeing from support forum searches that this has been an ongoing problem for people. Anything I can do to fix this?

    The blog I need help with is jlynnrowanliterature.wordpress.com.

  2. Have you checked in your email client spam/junk mail filter?

    Please confirm your email settings.
    You have two separate email address settings.

    Blog notifications for the admin (like comment moderation, Likes, new subscriptions, etc) are sent to the email address at Settings -> General in the Dashboard.

    Personal notifications (like comments on your post, subscription emails, and upgrade renewals) are sent to the email address at Users -> Personal Settings in the Dashboard.

    I'll tag this thread for a Staff follow-up as well.

  3. Thanks. I changed a few of the settings so we'll see what happens.

  4. You're welcome.

  5. Hi there,

    I've confirmed that I was able to follow you both via WordPress.com and was able to get the confirmation to follow you via email. Your followers should be getting messages whenever you post a blog entry!
