    I've submitted the site to be whitelisted for AOL (again). Generally, this takes a couple of business days.

    Well they did change servers lately... which means Micechat mail is coming from a different IP... which could have had a negative history with AOL... or Micechat could have not had its whitelist entry updated at AOL with the new IP.. etc

    AOL is verrrry unresponsive when it comes to these issues. It took awhile for my site to beat through AOL that we didn't have a spammer history, they couldn't show us a spammer history, so STOP treating us as spammers.

    Re: Instant e-mail notification

    I have mine set to send me notifications of PMs. But I still have to check since I am not getting emails for each PM now.

    I was wondering what changed, too.

    I'm getting them within a minute. What email provider are you using?

    It's possible they are delaying mail from micechat due to suspected spamming (many software filters think forum mails are spam). Deferring mail and throttling are some of the ways some providers (like AOL) try to combat spammers, often catching legit websites in the process.

    AOL has been the worst in my experience of helping my members. You have to be part of a special whitelist for AOL to stop screwing with your mail.

    If you look at the mail headers of the message, you can see when it was sent, when it was receieved, etc.

    Notifications are working fine for me (on yahoo)

    I noticed that myself as well, Diane. You're not alone.

    Instant e-mail notification

    I know a lot of people don't use this feature, but I sure do. I use it to follow threads from another browser.

    I noticed it's not very instant any more, since all the changes were made. Don't know if this will be corrected or if I should just get used to it. It now takes anywhere from 24 to 48 hours to get an "instant" e-mail.

    Sorry if I'm being picky, but thought I'd ask anyways.
