I haven't been receiving any email alerts since June 15,2020.
I am using Outlook.live.com
This is happening on all my devices, laptop, desktop and phone.
The address "noreply@allaboutcircuits.com" is not blocked and is listed in my safe senders list.
I did reach out through " Contact Us" and received a reply <I can see we are sending emails, but we've noticed Hotmail users have found the newsletters not hitting their Inbox>
Anybody else having this problem and know what the fix is?

Hi @sghioto , happy to continue our email conversation here.

Unfortunately there is not a lot I can do -- Hotmail is blocking the mail -- "Not delivering to a user who marked your messages as spam"

I have had this happen maybe twice over the years. No rhyme or reason. Eventually the problem just goes away and I get several dozen old emails at once. Never did find a cause. :(

Thanks Ron. I'm at a complete loss on this one but I suppose it's not a bad thing. My inbox will be less cluttered. :p

I, too, have not been getting email notifications of replies. I have tried unsuccessfully to rectify the issue. For some reason, the past few days I have gotten SOME notifications of responses. So I have no idea why about 10% of responses are coming through as notifications in my email.

Now, if I NEVER get notifications or ALWAYS get notifications, it could be a settings issue. But since I OCCASIONALLY get notifications, I don't think it's a setting issue, I think it's a problem at the host site.

Even normal notifications are iffy. When going through new posts, I often find new replies to threads I am following... and for which I didn’t get a notifications. I’ve reported this several times over the years.

I do not know how / how much my case relates to the OP but I suffered a total blocking of my emails to one of my major customers.

While using any kind of tricks to make my emails to reach their destinataries I did intensive attempts to get my account cleared as a no-spammer. After one long year, the prevailing conclusion was that their system had blacklisted my IP who acquired bad fame for not stopping the spam going out (what include my account amongst many that had nothing to do with that).

After seeing that nobody was actually interested in solving my problem I cancelled my contract and also moved to a Gmail account.

I use gmail.
Today I looked for new threads and found a reply to me, but I did not get an email about it. At the top of the screen at the Alerts bell it was there along with two other alerts for replies that I did get an email for each one.

The needed email was not in my empty spam folder or trash folder.

Sometimes I get an email, other times I don't. As of late I haven't gotten any. However, in the last month I've gotten SOME, not all, email's alerting me to new replies.

My problem is recent and does not occur on other forums that are not associated with All About Circuits.
The problem does occur with the sister forum (I can't remember which one) to All About Circuits.

Yes, I had an email alert of replies problem at Electronics Point where their emails recently went in my Spam folder that I never ever looked at before. My Spam folder has been empty since then.
