Although two of my books were received today by two different members, I have yet to get an email confirming that fact.  I looked in my settings to see if I might have turned that off by mistake, but it's still the way it was before.  It's not major, but I rely on that to double-check and to delete that book from my email archive.

Any ideas on what might have happened?

I think other people are having similar problems.  I didn't get my Daily Wish List update until middle of the day, which I usually get it much sooner than that.  Someone suggested it could be due to the weather/power outages or other issues like that.

Yes the PBS email server  is not sending out emails right now - that means that people who are trying to reset their passwords, or who are expecting Watched Topic alerts, etc, may have some confusion.  The blockage began around midnight last night (today). PBS is working on trying to remedy this.  Thanks for your Patience....

I am just starting to get some of those blocked emails coming through now so hopefully the servers will be caught up soon and the storm doesn't cause any more problems.

Could be the storm has interfered with PBS and members' computers and/or internet.
