Followers including myself not receiving emails

    Registered with a wordpress account and following but not receiving emails:
    (email redacted) (Me.)
    (email redacted)

    Just following and not receiving:
    (email redacted)
    (email redacted)
    (email redacted) (received one post a while ago out of a total of 4.)

    I’m sure there are more but I haven’t asked everyone!


    I and my followers check their spam, not there.



    discerningkate, those appear to be working fine. Specifically, which blog was this for?


    They might appear to but they are not. I have asked these people personally and told them to tell me the second something comes through. On the other hand, I also follow my blog with misskatej@gmail and I only ever received one email from a new post, again only 1 out of 4 some weeks ago.

    Thank you for looking into this.



    I can’t see anything that would prevent them from receiving the emails.

    As for your account, since you have a registered account, please see!/read/subsettings/ and make sure that “Block all email updates from blogs you’re following on ” is not checked.


    The box wasn’t checked (I’d already tried that option.) So what more can we do? You say there is no problem and I am sure there is :(



    Ok, and you are absolutely sure that these emails aren’t winding up in Spam or Trash, and that you have no filters set to automatically delete them?


    Yes for three of them I am sure. But also keep in mind in some cases a new post came through and at other times it didn’t to the same email.

    And I can speak with absolute certainty about my email – I received only one post out of four.



    Do you mean that it seems to be at random regarding when you do or don’t receive posts, or did you receive one and then all future posts failed to arrive?


    Well it’s hard to say for sure because each case is different but
    (email redacted) and (email redacted) fall into the category of receiving only random posts (one out of four). (email redacted) received the 3rd post out of 4 and (email redacted) received the 2nd out of 4.

    (email redacted) and (email redacted) only followed my blog before my most recent post yet received nothing. They both check their spam and settings etc but to no avail.



    Ok, that’s definitely not us then, which is unfortunate.

    Email subscription are pretty much all or nothing. Either the email server is down when you post or it isn’t. This doesn’t happen often, but it does mean that either everyone receives your posts or no one.

    If it’s scattered like that, it’s not happening on this end.

    At this point, I’d recommend keeping a very close eye on your spam folder, and also try to get in touch with Google.


    Still not receiving emails when blog I follow post new posts or when someone likes my blog, etc. Not going to spam or deleted or any other folder.
