Hotmail users & ASC aka Hotmail sucks.
 
Okay reposting this since it has been awhile since the last notice.

Hotmail likes to just randomly delete messages from our forums, the only users we have been having issues reported from when checked all have hotmail accounts linked to their accounts.

So this means they do not usually get the email verification when they first sign up which severely restricts what they can and cannot do on the forums. Or if they make it past the verification email, typically will not receive any email notifications if they have them turned on.

If you are experiencing these issues, you need to change your email to a non hotmail account.

No need to be sorry, it was a public FYI announcement lol
Periodically we get people complaining that they are having issues with notifications and such, when investigated, 98% of the time they use hotmail which for some reason sucks (might be that whole owned by Microsoft thing :D ).

I just received an email notification using Hotmail. Can anyone else confirm that the function has been restored?

Is it hotmail itself that's the "problem":confused:
Damn....LOL, I've watched too many episodes of the TV show The Frontline :D .....

ThunderCactus May 21st, 2016 11:35

Hotmail hasn't existed in like 3 years. It's OUTLOOK that is the problem.

I stopped getting ASC emails for a few months. This week I started getting them again. Hotmail OP.

I've had G-mail since early beta. So early, that I got a super-popular e-mail without having to add punctuation. Now? I get about two incorrectly addressed e-mails, or new account creation e-mails, a month. @_@

I recently hit 90% full on my inbox on ASC. Deleted my messages so now i have space, but now I'm not receiving email notifications on my hotmail account when I do get messages. I don't see them in my deleted folder. Will switching to non-hotmail fix the issue or is there another reason for not receiving email notifications?

JasonBourneCIA August 7th, 2016 10:03

I also didn't get the verification email from ASC :(

baraccuda113 September 17th, 2016 20:35

Are you guys hosted on go daddy? If so thats a likely problem.

BloodSport May 25th, 2017 10:27

Bumping this, we still weekly get people who "forget" their passwords and then cannot get their reminders due to hotmail, please before this happens to you go and edit your profiles and change your email to a non Mircosoft one!!
