I am not getting email about personal messages. Just started this morning. Yesterday I was getting them but not now. I have had 2 personal messages this morning and didn't get an email either time. Just noticed them when I was checking my account. I am getting emails for watched topics. Anyone else having this happen to them? Just thought it was weird:)

Yes, some weird things are happening on here. I received an email about 1/2 hour ago saying that I have a personal message. I already received that pm last night about 12 hours ago.

I received an email 15 minutes ago saying they accepted a book I requested. I requested that book 11 hours ago. I haven't received any emails about the other 3 books that I requested  since that one.

I am receiving emails on my watched topics,though, on time.

I think we're being spooked!  lol

I am not getting emails about watched topics now either:( I got a few this morning and now I am not getting any. Oh well, just have to keep checking throughout the day:) Maybe they are working on something. Never know.

I have not been getting e-mails on watched topics, credit transactions, or book transactions, or PM's all day!

That pretty well covers it for me

I got the newswire too, but no PMs (even though I had one) and no "Book has been mailed" (even though I had it set to send when one gets clicked as mailed). I guess with all the new stuff they're implementing, a few things get faffed up for a little bit. Then one day we'll click in and have bazongas backloads of emails from PBS.

On top of that issue, is anyone having trouble with books requested from them?

Today, twice now, I have received messages about books being requested from me. I have been online pretty much all day, these requests are NOT showing up. They arent even showing up and then being cancelled. They just arent showing up at all on my pbs account page. Is anybody else experiencing this today?

These weren't both for same book, they were for individual books. I just got the second one. Now I realize emails are running behind or whatever today, but I have been onsite pretty much entire day (I know get a life) and they never appeared as requested, even for a short time. Hmmmm....

I know I got my daily digest and daily wish list emails many hours later than I normally do. (They normally come in the middle of the night, and it was close to noon before they came today.) I did get the Newswire first thing this morning. Aside from that, I have PBS emails turned off.

I  am getting emails for watched topics but when I follow the link and go to the thread it hasn't been updated since 1:44 pm this afternoon...weird!  I refreshed the browser screen too and no difference.  Maybe they are emails that got hung up earlier in the day?

When I reported this problem to "LIve" they told me .......................sorry but you have to check the site everyday.  I replied that this was an unacceptable, and maybe they should check their servers!
