I know it has been asked before but I never receive notifications, even after weeks. I suppose setting it in my account settngs should be enough, isn't it?


I don't think it's a duplicate because in my case I don't click on inbox for weeks, or even access stackexchange for such periods, nevertheless I don't get notified of messages (that I only see when I get back to stackexchange)

  • It says "unread inbox items", so if you open the inbox, no matter on which site, all items are marked "read" thus won't be sent to your email. Jan 16, 2014 at 22:58
  • In my case I don't receive notifications even if I stay away from stackexchange for weeks. When I get back I see that my inbox has messages from a week or two before. That shouldn't happen right?

  • Maybe it reach the spam folder, maybe you have some filters blocking emails not in a whitelist. Make sure to add the domain stackexchange.com to the Safe Senders list, or whatever you got on your side for this. Feb 12, 2015 at 7:14
  • @giohappy you don't seem to be getting much activity in your inbox. I checked our email logs, and the last inbox notification you received was back in 2013 for the comments on this question.

  • @giohappy also, if you mean notification about the +30 reputation, we don't get notification for rep changes, only for inbox items Feb 12, 2015 at 15:30
