I've searched for an answer to the question how to get an email whenever someone posts a comment. There are many questions and answers on these forums but none work for me. All the usual suspects have been double checked, the email address is correct, and so on, but when a comment is posted no email is received. HOWEVER, when a comment is held for moderation I then get an email. Could this be related to Akismet because when I login as Admin and look at the Comment I read this message:
"Akismet has detected a problem. A server or network problem prevented Akismet from checking 1 comment. It has been temporarily held for moderation and will be automatically re-checked in 15 mins." I disabled Akismet as a test but email notification for regular comments (i.e. not held for moderation) are still not received. Any suggestions what this clue might be telling me?
