Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Thanks Saskia. I have done as you suggested. Not sure if it will make a difference as I receive regular emails from the BCN Campaigns team with no problem.....

Perhaps you can PM me & I will test it!

Many thanks

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi @helen44 

I wanted to let you know that we're still investigating this issue with your email notifications. We are wondering if our email domain has been blacklisted by your email provider. Below are a few short steps that will show you how to add Breast Cancer Now to your email contacts, to ensure you can receive email notifications. 

How to add our domain to your contacts:

Your email provider (Sky Yahoo mail) will usually deliver emails from addresses that are in your contacts. To add us to your contacts, first log in to your email inbox and then:

  • Mouse over the Settings menu icon and select Settings
  • Click Filters and then Add
  • Enter a Filter Name of your choosing
  • Enter breastcancernow.org in the Sender field
  • Click Save and then click Save again

The below example uses onlinegroups.net instead of breastcancernow.org:

In the meantime, we are still working to explore why you are not receiving PM email notifications from us. 

Please let us know if you have any questions at all.

Best wishes,

Saskia

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Roast pork,

Welcome to the Forum 👋

Your PM's are in the top right-hand corner of the screen, as shown by a little pink envelope.

Here, you can send messages by clicking on 'New Message' on the right-hand side, as well as view your received messages. 

If someone has sent you a message, click on the subject line of their message to reply.

I hope this helps.

Best wishes

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Saskia 

Just to let you know that I have not had any PMs sent to me in last fortnight so perhaps you can send me one and I will look out for the email notification. 

Many thanks

Hi Helen,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. 

We're still waiting for our colleague to reply, but our website support team has made some small changes to your settings and has asked that you keep an eye out for email notifications. Please let us know if you start receiving these over the next few days.

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Saskia

Happy New Year to you. 

My email is correct & hasn't changed during the time I have used the forum (7+ years).

The problem with email notifications started in January 2020 - please see my first post on this thread from February 2020.

Over the last month I have sent and received lots of PMs but, as during  the whole of 2020, not received one email notification. 

Many thanks for looking into it.

Hi Helen44

Happy new year!

I wanted to update you that we are still looking into this with our product manager and support team. Could you please let us know when this issue started? And please could you confirm that the email address in your settings hasn't changed and is the right address?

Best wishes, 

Saskia

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Helen

I too wasn't receiving BCC email notifications to my own, personal email "inbox", for a long time. Had to actually log onto the site to find out if any.  But DID receive one this week, so am presuming/hoping the prob may have been sorted.

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Helen,

Thanks for letting us know. I have been doing some investigating this morning and have sent you a test message which I hope worked. 

In the meantime, I have escalated this to our support team and I hope we can get this fixed as soon as possible. If not, our product manager will be able to look into this issue at the start of January.

Best wishes,

Saskia

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Saskia

Just to let you know that I have had 4 PMs yesterday and not received any email notifications. Again, I have checked my junk/spam folder and they aren't in there either.

Perhaps you can continue to investigate. 

Thanks, Helen

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Zoe

As I have been using PM a lot these last few days I have noticed that yet again I do not receive an email notification when someone replies to my PM. They are not going into junk/spam and you have already checked my account settings and they are correct. Any ideas?

Thanks, Helen x

Hi helen44,

Thank you for your patience.

Once again, we are sorry to see that you have had some issues with the email notifications. We have checked it and it seems that all your account settings are correct. Can I please ask you to check your spam emails? It is possible that the notification emails have ended up there.

If you need any additional information, please do not hesitate to get in touch and contact us at moderator@breastcancernow.org.

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi 

Just wondering if you are still looking into my query on PMs - ie why do we not get an email notification when receiving a PM anymore? It's very frustrating and I have missed a few over last months  because I don't sign on very often as I don't need to to read the threads.

Your help is appreciated. 

Many thanks 

Helen

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi Moderators

 

I haven't been on for a couple of weeks. Have just tried to access an email in my inbox a number of times, but keep getting a deep info pink band appearing across the base of the screen. This is allowing me to access an "input message" box to "send", but not access to my "inbox" mail.

Have checked my settings.

Has something changed procedure wise for private messaging, in the last couple of weeks, that I'm not aware of?

I can't access the listings for previously received or sent messages.

Any help or advise appreciated.

Thanks, Delly xxx

Re: PM usage - a question for a moderator

Thank you Zoe. I have successfully sent a PM just now.

What about email notifications for new private messages? I have checked My Settings & the box is ticked correctly for PMs.

PM usage - a question for a moderator

Hi BCN Moderators

Can you help please? Is there a limit on how many PMs you can send? I have sent 3 in the last week & it now keeps telling me I have reached my limit and try later. Last used it on Fri 7/2 and I cannot use it today. Also I used to receive an email notification when I had been sent a PM and that hasn't worked for a month.

Thanks, Helen
