Why do I no longer recieving notifications of bug activities?

Asked by TenLeftFingers on 2010-03-30

I've noticed recently that I don't get an email when there is activity on a bug report. These two bugs are current examples. The developer asked for further info and I did not know about it.

Jarlath, on bug #551062 I don't see you subscribed anywhere -- in other words, is there any reason you would expect to get notifications for that bug?

On the other hand, for bug #544556 you are directly subscribed, so you should be receiving notifications for that one. You've checked your email spam folder and looked in all the other obvious places?

Karl, for the first bug I had selected "me too" and assumed I was subscribed - my mistake.

Regarding the second one .. Gmail deletes Spam and Trash every 30 days according to the FAQ so it should be still be somewhere, but it isn't. I've checked my filters too but they only move items to trash, which contains no launchpad alerts.

I'm as sure as I can be that I never recieved a mail for that.

I added a new comment on the bug -- does it arrive for you via email? And I've subscribed myself. (I'm trying to think of ways to debug this...)

I received the notification of your comment on the bug Karl. I can't explain it. Maybe it's reasonable to assume the issue lies outside of launchpad. If it occurs again I can come back. But since my gmail trash has not been deleted in some time, the only way I could have received the first notification would be if I deleted it manually - twice (once to trash, twice to make it permanent) and yet forgotten about it.

Hunh. Well, email is a mysterious thing, and getting mysteriouser in these days of rampant spammers. I'll close this as "Answered" now, and if the problem recurs, just let us know.

Thanks Karl Fogel, that solved my question.
