I have not received any club communications e-mails since the maintenance was done last night.  I should have received many notification for the swaps I am hosting.   Is anyone else having this problem?

I'm thinking it was power issues in Georgia due to the storm rather than maintenance.  But that is just a guess.

Ok... glad I saw this. I thought something was messed up with my email since I'm not getting my "watched topic" notices.

Good point about the storm, Emily.  That hadn't occured to me, but Georgia was getting high winds.

PBS has stated that email going out is blocked.  They know about it, and are working on it. 

(Folks will also not be able to change their passwords until this gets unstuck.)

I assume this probably affects sending folks notifications that books on their WishList have been posted to them.  I posted two wishlist books this morning and both are on 48 hour hold.  I hope TPTB extend the 48 hour period if this goes on too long.

Hmm, I received a "watched topic" email at 5:21 pm.  Maybe things are starting to get back to normal.

I got my daily wish list notifaction that usually comes in around 2:30 AM with a time stamp of 5:34 PM.  

 

I am sure there is a backlog of messages that are going to hit our in boxes over the next few hours.

Yeah, that's what's happening.  I've gotten several watched topic emails for a topic I stopped watching a few hours ago.
