Email notifications don't work for stream?

I've noticed two posts made by other users in my stream recently, but I was not notified about it by email. I double checked that email notifications for "Someone posts on my stream" are enabled.

Does anyone experience the same program? Team, could you look into this, please?

I've noticed this on/off for a while. I'll get a notice that XXXX posted, I'll reply, then XXXX will reply but I get no notice and will only find out if I go scrolling. It doesn't always happen, but it does seem to happen now and again.


Have the same problem. I usually start getting e-mails once I've replied to a stream conversation, but that wasn't always the case either.

Edit: I actually just got a response from someone who started the conversation without a notification for the first or second time the person posted on my stream.


It just worked for me. Are you sure it didn't go on your spam? I just posted on your stream. Did you get it?


Yes, I'm sure it didn't go to spam, and, strangely, yes, I got the notification about your post in my stream. Maybe that was a temporary problem.


Since it seems to be happening to a number of people, we will investigate. Can you point to the post for which you didn't get an email?


I don't know how to get the link to a post. Here are the screenshots:



I noticed both posts while scrolling my stream and never got email notifications for them.


I have the opposite problem. I get email notifications about new posts in a discussion, but the posts do not show up on my stream. I have this issue using Chrome, Firefox and IE with or without addons enabled.


You're right. That used to happen in the past, but maybe it cluttered people's streams.
