Thread: Blog updates fail

    Blog updates fail

    Hello friends, for some time now I've been receiving email updates for Shokai's blog. I noticed that they recently stopped, despite the fact that I'm apparently still subscribed. I applied the usual tactic of unsubscribing and resubscribing but still no updates. Any advice?
    Also I wondered if there is anyone here willing to help me with a small but incredibly annoying computer problem? It might mean email communication as I would have to send a short video of my computer screen.
    Many thanks!

    Tairin, I just realised that I'm not getting any updates at all from forum threads. Hopefully this will be attended to.

    Hey Shokai,

    If you click the "remember me" check box you won't get logged out. =)

    Unfortunately no Shokai, all very odd but I'm hopeful that one of our tech team will be able to help.

    Shingen;
    Thanks. I have to wonder how that gets unchecked. Sekishi helped with that a while back but I had forgotten.

    Yah right, I can barely remember who I am most days lately.

    As to Meitou's original question -- I know last year in an attempt to simplify some of the forum and blog user interface elements, we decided to turn off / hide some of the actual buttons and widgets for things related to blogs and groups. But I don't know of any changes that would stop the email notification from working. I've added a note to my TODO list and will look at it in the next few days.

    I can relate too. =)

    Just as an fyi ... I have noticed that notifications are a bit funny and selective these days. I get all notifications via Tapatalk, but when it comes directly from the forum, it is be funky.

    Just the quoted post from you Sekishi, I did get it as a notification to my email, but it actually came from Tapatalk and not the forum.

    Not sure if that helps or makes it more confusing ... but there yah have it.

    Thank you for the info Shingen.

    I did a quick check of the following:

    1. Mail stuck in the queue. There is none addressed to your usual "zenj****" email address.
    2. SPAM / Blacklists. Treeleaf is not listed on any of the top 100 or so blacklists I usually check.

    I might have to punt this to Seimyo and see if he has any ideas.

    Stay tuned.

    I have a theory. Posting to see if my theory holds but frankly I may need someone else to post to this thread

    Hi all,

    After testing with a number of different email addresses at different ISPs, I think we are a little closer to understanding this issue. I believe the forum is still sending out notification emails, but some ISPs are not delivering them (or flagging them as SPAM). In particular I saw deliverability issues with gmail, protonmail, and a few other large mail providers.

    I made some changes behind the scenes today to provide better authentication for the treeleaf mail server (updated DKIM and SPF records for the technically curious among us). If these updates work, it might still take a day or two for the new changes to get picked up by large ISPs. So I'll run another round of tests in a few days.

    Thank you all for your patience and assistance.

    Yes, this may be the problem; I use Gmail and mail from Treeleaf always comes up flagged as lacking authentication. I'll let you know if there's any change.
    Since yesterday morning my computer has been running OK, but in the likely event that this strange problem it has happens again, I'm going to attempt to get it on video and post it here in the hope that someone can help me. Would that be OK? I'm usually pretty good at resolving my tech issues but this has got me beat.
