not receiving emails when someone follows my blog

  1. Hello, i just created a blog a few days ago, and i have checked the box (under discussion settings) to receive emails when someone follows my blog, however, i am not receiving those emails (my email address is correct and I have received emails to moderate comments). My stats section indicates i do have a few followers.
    Blog url: http://bobduedall.wordpress.com/

  2. Have you checked your email spam filter in case that's where they are?

  3. Hello - thank you. Yes, I've been checking my spam/junk folder, and they haven't shown up there. I'm wondering if the notifications of followers are only sent for the "wordpress-user" followers, and not the "email followers" that haven't signed up for wordpress?

  4. I have flagged this thread for Staff attention. Please be patient while waiting for assistance.

  5. Thank you very much!

  6. Yes, notifications for email followers are currently not being sent. We are only sending notifications for WordPress.com followers at this time.
