[closed] Blog Randomly Churning Out Email Notifications of Old Posts (5 posts)

    I have no idea why, but sine last night my blog (self-hosted WordPress site) has been randomly churning out email notifications of old posts to my email followers. I don't really spot a pattern here, no idea why the posts were selected and so on. Does anyone know why this might be happening? The posts are not re-published in RSS or any other way. Just email notifications.

    Thanks so much for any help anyone might be able to offer!

    Have you tried:

    - deactivating all plugins to see if this resolves the problem. If this works, re-activate the plugins one by one until you find the problematic plugin(s).

    - switching to the Twenty Eleven theme to rule out any theme-specific problems.

    - resetting the plugins folder by FTP or PhpMyAdmin. Sometimes, an apparently inactive plugin can still cause problems.

    - re-uploading all files & folders - except the wp-content folder - from a fresh download of WordPress.

    Hey there,

    Thanks so much for the speedy response! Now come to think of it I was asked to update Jetpack last night, and afterwards the problem started. I'm going to de-activate this one to see if it continues!

    My company owned the blog “For the Love of Peaches.” We let the domain expire and abandoned the blog. Now, someone has a WordPress blog with the same name. Our issue is that the email address associated with OUR old blog is now kicking out notifications of posts from the new blog to subscribers of the old blog. What is happening?
