- The message IS posted, but this error is always appearing for now.

I haven't gotten that one yet, though I don't think I've posted in a while. I'll see if it happens in this post.

EDIT: Nope, went through fine. Maybe it's only in certain forum sections here?

I got this error today too. Posted the same message 3 times, but deleted the extra ones when I found that they were actually posted.

It seems I get this with private messages but not for regular posts (yet).

I think it happens when someone has checked "Notify me when a reply is posted" and no mail server is correctly configured.

I didn't have requested to be notified on new messages (since I check here more ofthen than my mailbox that wouldn't make sense).

I also don't use that option, but was getting the error. Anyway, there have been no errors for a while, so whatever it was is probably solved now.

It's not that you have requested notification but that someone else has requested notification for the same topic.

Oh yeah, that makes sense. After all, it's somebody else's topic, so why would I be notified of anything? Wasn't thinking straight, stupid me!

Just for the record, me too.

I got it to......I even mentioned it.

Is this problem still happening, and if so, how can I reproduce it (even if it happens randomly)?

We made some mail changes to Parodius during the late afternoon of June 10th, to help curb spam. The local SMTP server would have been down during that time, since the changes we had to apply affected both Internet-facing SMTP services as well as local SMTP services (configuration fun!).

If the problem is still occurring, post here or let me know (you can send mail to support@parodius.com or me personally as jdc@parodius.com) and I'll dig through logs to see what I can find.

Otherwise, it might be a PHP system-wide setting I need to adjust. Hmm...

EDIT: I can see how this was happening. The forum software was configured to use mail.parodius.com as it's SMTP server, which won't work as a result of our recent changes (see above). I changed the server to localhost, and sent myself a private message, which induced an Email:

Subject: New Private Message has arrived

Hello koitsu,

You have received a new private message to your account on "nesdev.com" and you have requested that you be notified on this event. You can view your new message by clicking on the following link:

http://nesdev.com/bbs/privmsg.php?folder=inbox

Remember that you can always choose not to be notified of new messages by changing the appropriate setting in your profile.

Thanks, Nesdev Forum Management


Can others please test and confirm success?

It seems to work again, thanks for the fix.
