I am not receiving "your alerts" notifications

For a week or so now I have not received any alerts regarding new posts in threads I have participated in.

I have manually checked a few of the threads and new posts have been added.

I have the "alert me" box checked in my overall preferences, and check the individual alert box on each post.

I have not changed the email account associated with my membership.

I don't know if something has changed at the mail server handling the account. It's run by a developer friend of mine, I'll ask next time I see him on IM. (which should be any minute now)

Am I missing something? Doing something wrong? Banished to the wilderness for forty days??

and believed to be resolved. Alerts should be starting to send again as normal at the top of the hour (for those who subscribed hourly) starting at 8pm ET / 5pm PT

I personally have already started to receive a few alerts at both 8pm ET and again at 9pm ET for both ZDNet and TechRepublic alerts.

The issue will be monitored personally over the next 48 hrs, then placed on a new alert system (no pun intended)

Let me know or one of our moderators know if you are still seeing issues with the alerts for either ZDNet or TechRepublic.

actually I don't think I've got any for over a year or more

I think that's because I don't tag them to send me emails now, just check the Discussion page for updates, and the ones I used to have tagged are all well and truly retired.

OK, "it's working the way it did before it stopped working." I shall henceforth refrain from reference to "normal," except when prefixed with "situation."
