Email Notification Not Working (5 posts)

    Hello,

    I am pretty new to wordpress.org and I am having trouble getting my site to send out email notification when I publish new posts. When someone signs up they get a email confirmation, however whenever I publish a new post no email notification gets sent out to my subscribers. I have tried this with jetpack's email subscription service, feedburner, and subscribe2 and it still doesn't work. I am currently using the Virtue theme but have tried other themes as well but it still does not work.
    I have read through the forums for similar issues and have tried the following but none have worked.

    - deactivating and reactivating the email subscription option
    - uninstalling and reinstalling the plugins
    - uninstalling all of the other plugins to see if they interfere with the email plugin
    - switching themes, I have tried a few including Twenty Twelve

    I am correct in thinking that an email should be sent out whenever I publish a new post, is that right?

    Any help on this issue would be greatly appreciated, thank you

    Only if people have signed up for emails via something like Jetpack. Try reviewing E-mailed passwords are not being received.

    They have, they receive a confirmation email for signing up but do not receive emails when new posts published. I have tested this with a few of my own email address and have even checked my spam folders and nothing is being sent

    Try posting in the Jetpack plugin's dedicated forum via its page in the Plugin Repository.
