    Before the upgrade we had an email notification of private messages- if it has to go so be it but I did like it and where I might not be able/inclined to sign into the forum or something I will usually have emails to hand not to mention my email client drags new emails down and I get notified that way (if having a conversation by PM it saves pressing f5 or forgetting about it for a couple of hours).

    Also I am subscribed to the DS hacking section for a weekly roundup (and had been for some time before the upgrade- indeed such a thing keyed me onto the upgrade early on) and weekly now seems to mean every two days. It is not a big issue for me but such things tend not to sit well with the big email providers (gmail, hotmail, aol, ISP stuff). This also arose with the upgrade and I will have to check but it might also be the case that the second server doubled it. Content wise it seems to be the two days since last email.

    Yes, I have also noticed this, even though I already changed my new settings for subscription notifications.

    And even with the old system, it would stop giving me replies after 2 or 4 weeks.

    Just an update- 1) must pay more attention to options as I somehow skipped over the PM one.

    2) I deleted the email notifications and remade them on the new board- still getting them every two or three days (usually two)
    I guess it is related to the two servers- I have not checked them all but it does seem to alternate between coming from 23.245 and 30.127 although sometimes I might get two or three in a row from one IP before it swaps.
    I usually check anyway and only really use the subscription to help with searching.
