DANs email system unreliable on 06-03-2014

Post by Kai »

In some remote area of our server I had a wordpress script installed which was vulnerable and could have gotten hijacked. Although there is no evidence it ever was hijacked, Spamhaus.org lists all servers which have this script installed in their database.

The script was removed but it will take a day or two for us to get removed from the blacklist. During this time you might not receive thread update notifications or other system relevant messages, especially if your email provider is hotmail or yahoo.

Sorry for the inconvenience.

I did not get an email notification of a private message I received on 3 July. I wonder if there could be a counter somewhere that displayed unread PMs as a hedge against the blacklist issue.

Minutes after posting this, I got an email notification.

I hate computers.

Colin, the blacklist issue is sorted. You should always receive system and forum update notification if those are your settings. Nevertheless, whenever you login here, you should also see a pm-notification.

I stay logged in all the time. Maybe that's the problem. I'm sure my wife would agree with you, but I need to keep up with all of the wisdom from our crowd.

OK, that is something. Now I am a bit too lazy to figure out why the JS-notification doesn't pop up. Maybe it is the browser. Will check if it works at least on Chrome and on IE.

Just another data point. I stay logged in all the time, too. When I get a new PM, I see an email, but no popup. However, when I click on "View Unread Posts", which I do quite frequently, I get the popup that says I have a new PM. This is from IE9.

Kai,

I have been getting reliable email notifications now since the 13th (three days ago). It looks like you fixed the problem because. Prior to that, my last regular notifications stopped on the 25th of September.

Thanks!
