Hi all,

For some reason the notifications for PM's are coming are really weird times though my email (gmail). Usually about 0000-0200 (GMT) ish for PM's received the prior day.

There was always a lag historically, but it was a few minutes, rather than hours I'm seeing now.

Any ideas?

Experienced the same, yesterday. I thought it was a new reply in a discussion, but no - it was just a funny e-mail time stamp (00:29).

I got an email at 11:27 about an entry from 08:39. So 3 hours after the post. Not a PM though, but an email about one of the forums. And in the email text the date of the message is listed as "Mon, 08 August 2011 01:39" (so -7 hours from the date listed in the post on the web. I'm at CET summertime, so EST? MST?) http://www.orafaq.com/forum/t/173741/111365/

I see some lag here then (from email source):

Same here with GMail account.
All my forum/thread subscription emails are delivered with a few hours lag. Seems this was happening for a while and I failed to notice.
I primarily rely on those subscriptions to "Check new/updated forum posts" and was
just wondering if the whole community was way faster to respond because most of the threads/topics were done/closed within a few minutes I get the email Smile.
In most cases, I got nothing new to contribute to the thread and was just moving on.
And this thread which was posted by the wee hours my time managed to reach my inbox only by 7.40AM.

I have also been experiencing slow email notifications from OraFAQ to my hotmail regarding everything, including PM's, responses to threads I have replied to, and new threads in watched forums, for at least the last few days.

*Maybe* it has something to do with optimization Frank Naude did (I mean, the optimization will fix the e-mail issue).

As of now,
I see no changes. I am still getting this notification after around 5 hours.
But the forum response time is much better.

Just as an update:

I got a PM notification at 20:13 from a PM sent at 14:14
The posts in this thread notifications:
Barbara's 17:56 post @ 12:21 am
Mahesh 01:41 post received at 03:54

Didn't seem to get one from LF's post.

All times GMT

Slow for me as well. For Littlefoot's post: 5 hours later, Mahesh's post: 2 hours, Roachcoach's post: 1 hour. Then I also got an email about a post on one of the forums, but this one came only half an hour after the post. So it seems to be improving, but is it perhaps just a coincidence in this case? Anyone else noticing anything?
