    i have my email address set right
    i have set my settings to instant notification
    i have done a test in the test section

    but i just don't seem to be able to get my email notifications, for subscribed threads or PM`s

    any ideas, it`s really frustrating

    thx all
    Jack.

    It's a known issue with your email service provider. No one using that email service gets reply notifications or PM alerts, and there is nothing we can do about it from this end. (It's a miracle that forum join notifications make it through their spam filtering. And no, there are no settings you can change in their spam configuration to get these messages either. They are blocked further up the food chain there, I'm afraid.)

    The best we can advise is to get a free email service account, like a hotmail, gmail or yahoo account, and use that in your profile instead.
