2.3.3 Not receiving email notification of new comments

  • 2.3.3 Not receiving email notification of new comments

    Creating a new thread from http://wordpress.org/support/topic/130205/page/2?replies=57 because the thread spanning over a time when related

    Some questions:

    1. Has it ever worked? When did it stop working? Is this a new WordPress installation or an upgrade?

    2. Any email related WordPress plugins?

    3. Who is your hosting provider? Have you contacted them to ask if the emails are successfully being sent? And if so, what is the error message for them being rejected by the recepient?

    4. Does the email address wordpress@[blog domain] exist?

    Thanks!!

    1. Has it ever worked? When did it stop working? Is this a new WordPress installation or an upgrade?
    — Yes, it worked in WP 2.3.2. It stopped working right in the moment when I upgraded to 2.3.3. This is an upgrade, not new installation of WP.

    2. Any email related WordPress plugins?
    — No.

    3. Who is your hosting provider? Have you contacted them to ask if the emails are successfully being sent? And if so, what is the error message for them being rejected by the recepient?
    — DreamHost. I didn’t contact them, yet. As all worked fine with WP 2.3.2 and email notifications stopped working when I upgraded to 2.3.3, I thought it’s probably WP bug…

    4. Does the email address wordpress@[blog domain] exist?
    — No.

    UDPATE: I fired up my e-mail client today and lo and behold! I received *some* of the e-mail notifications from WordPress! But not all! I mean, I have comments from yesterday and today. Yesterday I wasn’t notified of any comments. Today came 7 e-mails, notifying me of yesterday’s comments. For today’s comments, notifications didn’t come (yet?)… So, I’m more and more puzzled… :-/

    1. I installed WP on my new host. Imported the xml files. Received notifications around 3 days and then it stopped working.

    2. Yes: Comment Email Responder, Secure and Accessible PHP Contact Form, Subscribe To Comments.

    3. I tried sending emails using horde in my cpanel and it is able to send and receive fine. I guess problem is not on host’s part.

    4. No.

    Latest update: after around 12-24 hours started receiving notifications for older comments… Looks like now comment notification system works again? Didn’t change anything in my WP setup, though.. Hmmmmmmm… :-/

    I have the same problem. I think mine have only stopped after moving to another server though. I’m on V 2.3.3. My comment notifications have always been addressed to my personal email account but from wordpress@mydomain.

    Fixed in my 2.5 upgrade if anyone’s keeping score.

    Any problems for you guys in 2.7?
    I have the same problem.
