    Hello,

    this is the 2nd or 3rd day, that I did not get a bunch of mails with from my subscriptions. I have more than 500 subscribed topics and get about 15 mails each morning, except the last two or three mornings. Is the mail system broken or are there other problems?

    Yes, I did look in my spam folder ;).

    Bye,
    Oliver

    Hm. I removed some of the old subscriptions. Now I'm at 460. If I'm getting mails tomorrow there seems to be a limit of 500 subscriptions.

    I`ve turned on auto subscription. Which ever thread you post a reply, you get automatically subscribed for:)

    Well, I mainly use is to ensure that I dont miss any comments to my posts, if there are any. It takes less then 5 minutes every day to go through all those 30-40 mails while pressing cmd+f to search for "Superman" in the thread to see if someone had quoted me for any reason. It`s very helpful especially in case of threads like minigore one where you there can be 100s of posts in one day.

    Also thanx to gmail, all these subscription emails get automatically labeled as "Forums" and it takes just 2 clicks to select all such emails and archive them so that your inbox is no longer cluttered with these subscription mails.

    I just wish that we could get alerted when we are quoted across all threads. That would be really useful.

    Try n change your email address. Dunno if it`ll work but it should be worth a try atleast. BTW do u see any subscribed threads when u click the "User CP" at the top of the forums?n Just confirming. May be those threads got unsubscribed somehow..

    I changed the mail address. there it works. My previous mail address belongs to googlemail. So it seems, that the Toucharcade notifications are now blocked by Google, maybe only on my account, maybe everywhere.

    Is there a way to change the settings of the gmail spam filter? I looked, but found nothing :(.

    Create a new filter with a search criteria for the emails in mention. Then under "Choose Action" (after clicking on "Next Step"), choose Never send it to Spam.

    You could also do a search for your username every once in a while in the search box to see if anyone quoted you or said your name at any time.

    I added this option to my filter and check it today. Thanks!

    Btw: The mails weren't added to the spam, they just never appeared ;).
