I may be wrong here, but I thought I used to get e-mails whenever I had a PM or a book order, etc. from PBS, but recently (I think since the last problem), I don't seem to get the emails. Was I dreaming and did I not get the emails like I thought. I checked my profile, etc., and it shows that I want to receive that information, so don't know if it's a glitch at PBS or what.

I haven't been getting the emails from PBS to my yahoo account.  Switched to my hotmail and have been receiving them.

It depends upon which email provider you use. Some have blocked PBS when they did updates.

I didn't get one several days ago when I had a book order, but since then I've gotten  "book mailed" and "WL offered" emails.  Seems to be hit or miss for me.  I use gmail.

Well, I found out what happened to my emails from PBS - they went to my SPAM folder - all 60+ of them. LOL. Pat

Check your club communications. You can see emails that aren't showing up at your email inbox and then contact PBS for an explanation. Daily Digest sometimes comes and sometimes doesn't. I have been receiving the emails listing requests from me and noting auto-request from my WL account. Still I check 'my account' page here at the site to be sure. It seems the site worked better when it was free than it does now.

Marya  - I was checking Club Communications, so was getting the messages, but have things set up to get them through email also, but when the last glitch went down, apparently, they slipped through, and I seldom check SPAM, but will do so in the future when PBS is down or not working properly. Just was a fluke that I looked and found them. Pat

I did not receive emails for 2 PMs that came today.  In Club Communications it doesn't list them.  Any thoughts?

I believe if you are logged in and online on PBS any PMs will show up as the red alert at the top of the page but those do not have an email.
