    why i don't receive mails notifications?

    my settings seems normal.
    these thread options seems normal.
    the mails notification are on. but i can't receive them.
    i'm using hotmail.
    now i'm see if i block the cboard mail without notice, but what is your mail?

    You mean replies to threads you created / are subscribed too, right? I receive those to my gmail address.

    But subscriptions for entire forum sections (e.g. Tech Board) are only sent out once a day or week or so, to reduce work for the server I imagine.

    Did you explicitly enable the notifications? I know it is not the default, but then even if you did sometimes email gets into spam etc.

    I suspect nobody has an idea. The forum admin would probably have to look into it.

    Maybe trying toggling relevant settings and saving that change, then toggling them again back to the desire state and saving once more. Another possibility is that @hotmail addresses are marked as untrustworthy. They have (or at least had) a bad image due to being the origin of SPAM.

    No idea about getting it to work with your hotmail address, but at least now you know the culprit. It would be something an admin has to look into, which I'm not.
