Support » Fixing WordPress » Suddenly not receiving comment notification emails

  • I have wordpress set to email me when someone leaves a comment and also when a comment is pending moderation. It was working perfectly for month until yesterday. I haven’t received any emails for any comments since yesterday afternoon.

    The email in the settings is correct.
    The email notification options are selected.

    I have tried deactivating all my plugins, switching themes, resaving the email and notification settings. And still none of my test comments are being emailed to me.

    If it matters, I use gmail and there is also nothing has landed in my spam folder.

    Not sure what else to check considering I haven’t made any changes to anything in at least a few weeks. The similar issues I found on the boards seem to be pretty old or have not worked for my issue. Anyone have any ideas?

  • Consider using a service like Postmark. They have an easy to use WordPress plugin and will drastically up your delivery rate for transactional emails.

    I don’t want to have to pay for something that wordpress offers for free that suddenly just stopped working. I’d prefer to fix the issue with wordpress rather than pay for a service. I will keep it in mind though, thanks.

    It’s $1.50..
