No email notification of comment pending

  • For some reason, my WordPress blogs don’t notify me that a comment is being held for moderation. It worked once before, but now I don’t receive any email notifications. I’ve checked and doubled checked the settings, and they are all good.

    Any known issues with comment email notifications?

  • I’m having this problem too, even since upgrading to 2.8 and migrating my blog to a new host. Not sure which action produced this problem as the two things happened on the same day. Before the move/upgrade I received email notification consistently; since the move, not one email from WordPress. Any ideas? I’ve heard there’s a conflict between WP and gmail, but my comment notification emails are set to be sent to my domain email first, then sent on to gmail, so I don’t think that can be the problem. I see there’s a big discussion of this problem here, back in April:
    But I’m not sure that’s relevant to my problem.
    Thanks for any help!

    The fix I’ve found is to create a wordpress@your-domain.com email address on your host site. That’s the address used to send the email notifications, and adding this address worked for me. I found the fix in some guy’s blog.
