I have ticked the 'yes' box to get emails for new posts on my watched threads. I was getting emails but now I'm not. I've not changed any settings so why is this happening?

There's an email button?

oooh yes me too.

MirandaWest Thu 03-Apr-14 21:53:31

I've got that problem as well. Where have my emails gone sad

NinaSharp Thu 03-Apr-14 21:56:11

Is this on the iPad or something?

MirandaWest Thu 03-Apr-14 22:14:34

To set it up you have to do it on a PC or at least you did when I first set it up. But now it's not doing anything sad

Never heard of it?
Why would you want that?

So that when you're watching a thread you get notified when someone posts on it. Saves you checking your watched list.

I'm not on an iPad.
have nc back into my old one though

It was a new function set up last November, Patchouli

Sorry about this - we'll get someone techy to take a look.

MirandaWest Fri 04-Apr-14 09:46:25

My emails have returned smile

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 04-Apr-14 09:47:48

Oh... thanks for letting us know! Anyone else?

I'm watching is broken altogether on the app as far as I can tellsad
just checked and current threads I'm watching just aren't on it at all?

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 04-Apr-14 16:47:48

Oh dear, sorry to hear that. The current app is on its way out so we're sorry to say we won't be making any more fixes to it - but there will be a new and very much improved app and mobile site along shortly. For now, you might find it easier to use the current mobile site if TIW is really important for you.

ohh I got an email for a watched threadsmile

It's happening again, come on Mumsnet sort it out please!

MirandaWest Sun 20-Apr-14 22:29:23

I've got the same problem - have reported it and even told tech will look into it.

50ShadesofGreyMatter Wed 23-Apr-14 22:55:41

Still not getting these emails, what's going on?

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Thu 24-Apr-14 09:56:28

Oh dear, thought this was sorted - will see if we can find out what's going on, please bear with us for a bit

Hello - right yes it had fallen over again so thanks for flagging. We've restarted it now; those of you who are signed up might get a few backdated mails, just to warn you.

MirandaWest Thu 24-Apr-14 13:44:16

Mine is working again smile thank you smile

50ShadesofGreyMatter Thu 24-Apr-14 23:34:24

Hi Rowan, for me it seems to work for a while then it stops working. Then it starts again.
Have you done a permanent fix?

50ShadesofGreyMatter Thu 24-Apr-14 23:35:19

Oops I meant to say if I click the "watch this thread" again after it has stopped working it works again.

RowanMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 25-Apr-14 13:09:16

We're hoping the fix is permanent - fingers crossed...
