Howcum the last two days I receive emails telling me that a topic I have been watching has a new post, but when I click on the link I now receive a message telling me that an error has occured and I am denied access????<br>Also, howcum I always receive three emails for the same post?

That post may have been removed for one reason or another. As to receiving 3 emails for every post, I have no idea what that is about. <br><br> Has it happened on more than one subject?

Checked and I can't find that post any more. The three emails is common for all posts.

I'm not sure about the three emails either. Can someone reply to this topic real quick so I can check to see what the server is doing? I want to make sure this isn't a common thing.

Test reply for the guy that &quot;owns this place&quot;

(modification of original test reply, maybe that's why the emails are tripled)

For this post I am no longer receiving three emails and obviously I am not denied access.<br>The denied access only happened on one specific subject and that is on a post that seems to have vanished.

It will take a better bunch than you guys to straighten me out! [laugh] ;)<br>However I now understand why I was denied access but have no clue why the three emails. Will see if it happens again. Thanks for the fast response.

Hate to tell you this, but today I received three emails, all identical on a post I am watching. Will let you know if it happens again.

Will let you know if it happens again.<br><br><br>Are you sure its just not emailing you every time a NEW reply is made to that thread? I get home every evening and I have SEVERAL emails to one post, all of them are replies made by people to that thread.

I am not sure what I am getting. All I know is that each reply is exactly the same. Today is great as I am only receiving one email to each post I am watching. Yesterday I had four replies to one post and every one was identical. Other replies yesterday varied from one to three replies. If it happens again is there anything specific that I should watch for and let you know about?

Your clicking the Notify of replies box below aren't you? If so anytime a person replies to a thread then you recieve an email. Like I said above I get home some nights and I have 50 emails from DTR and others I have 20 ??? Just depends on the flow of traffic.

Yes, that is all I do, is click on the 'Notify&quot; box. However why would the multiple emails all be exactly the same if others are replying? The multiple replies are as tho the same person is sending me the repeat emails.<br>As I said, today everthing is working fine and I have not done anything different.

OK, with your help I have figured it out. I think I am receiving these multiple emails because as you said, I am checking the &quot;Notify&quot; button each time I reply. Did not do that today and now only receive one email per post notification. May I suggest for dummies like me that a note be added to the notify button that it be clicked on only once per subject or something like that. This dummy thought that he had to click on it every time he answered something. Sorry for making you think. ;D
