Gmail fails me…


So, I mentioned yesterday that I’m not getting notifications of comments. I looked into it for a bit yesterday but had other things to do. This morning I woke up and started obsessing on it. I took a peek at all my settings, I set up a test account and posted comments, I googled it, searched on WordPress, and even posted a support ticket to my host. Nada.

But then I read on my host’s status page that there was a problem with forwards to Gmail and as of November 29, (which happens to be the last day I received a comment notification) there have been no updates stating the issue is resolved.

As a workaround, I changed all email settings with WordPress to go to a yahoo email address, and walla! I can receive comment notifications. So it’s a Gmail issue… or it’s an issue with my host and Gmail. Either way, it’s annoying and frustrating. But at least I have a temporary fix for now.

For anyone who I missed replying to because I did not receive a notification, my apologies.

UPDATE: Slowly… very very slowly, two days worth of comment notifications seem to be arriving. So strange…

  1. I am getting the notifications in gmail but they all say they are from “me” in the inbox. When I reply to them, they go back to my address instead of the the sender. Yahoo does not do this behavior. Do you experience it this way too? How do you deal with it?
