Topic # 111468 4-Nov-2012 15:15 Send private message

Created a topic earlier today. The topic has one reply so far. I did not get an email notification for that reply. Not in spam folder or anywhere as far as I can make out.

http://www.geekzone.co.nz/forums.asp?forumid=97&topicid=111463

This is the first topic I have created since the introduction of set answer functionality.

Emails are flowing and there's no transmission error to your custom domain. The other thread is marked for notification. There must be something else in the Intertubes that caused this.

Actually... Here it is:

"Message delivery to the host '74.125.25.[removed]' failed while delivering to the remote domain 'trans[removed].com' for the following reason: The remote server did not respond to a connection attempt."

"Message delivery to the host '173.194.79.[removed]' failed while delivering to the remote domain 'trans[removed].com' for the following reason: The connection was dropped by the remote host."

Free or paid? Sometimes I don't receive email to my free one for no reason at all, but I don't use it to host a business email account, so not really a problem.

Free at present but I'm not convinced paid will make a difference in this case or any case.

Googling around for news - Google had 6 minutes of reduced Apps service affecting 10% of users on Wednesday recorded on status page and in the past there have been similar small outages now and then.

Mail disruption anywhere is not uncommon. Most mail servers seem to be configured for retry several times over a defined period (4 hours not unusual) to complete the delivery. I'm not sure to what extent a small outage or problem in the tubes is an issue for any normal email mail delivery.

My guess is geekzone notification mail is on a once only best attempt basis.

Just look at the logs - tried to two different addresses.

Over a short period and no significant delayed retry.

I'm not complaining - I expect a lot of non-critical website notification type stuff is set up like this.

I initially thought it might be something more serious.
