so I needn't provide evidence to support a position I don't hold
This Is Seti Ozzfan, you need to provide evidence for even having the temerity to live! All posts are challenged by the trolls as if you are the accused in the dock in a court of law. There is so much trippy tapping going on that the rest of us can hardly hear ourselves think!!

...and of course let us not forget that website developers the world over change things for the sake of changing them. Despite the protests from users.

Near enough to be right Rob! As Eric K has said elsewhere, there are 2 Billion Android users out there we haven't got to yet. OK right, so Boinc Devs with their Uni rose tinted glasses on, say lets all think 10 years ahead, and be oh so with it, bandanas on their head, open toed sandals, whilst not having their feet on the ground in the real world we all live in. And who suffers??? The very people here and now that make Seti@Home what it is.

Sack the bloody lot and be done with it!!!!

I'd be happy if my two sig blocks were displaying side by side, as they used to be.
And if email notification of PMs was working again.

I mentioned a simple fix for that back in December (Message 1834656), but my suggestion was never picked up. The default "display: inline" attribute is being overridden by "display: block" in the "upgrade".

If you're using Firefox, you can try a little experiment. Right-click on your first sig image, then choose "Inspect Element". You'll see a "display:block" attribute in the lower right panel, with a check box next to it. Click that box to deselect that attribute and the default "display:inline" will take effect, which should move your sigs back to a side-by-side position. Of course, they'll only stay that way until you reload the page. :^)

Well they are working for me. Have had several over the last few days.

I use Gmail so perhaps it is your mail provider?

They will also show as a notification in BOINC Manager. Even when the preference is to send only to account (no email).

It's never worked for me, and I've tried individual, as well as daily notifications.

It has always worked for me.
The last one I received was on 4/15/2017 7:27 AM.
Something went south after that point and I have not received one since.

And I got an e-mail at 18:57 today.

So what is different about our respective e-mails? What changed back in April?

Well, my email domain is btinternet.com

I posted some thoughts about the areas that may contain useful diagnostics in a post at BOINC - BOINC message 78107. But they're all server-side, so only accessible to project server admins - not to us mere volunteer mortals.

Another thought after that post - outgoing emails may be blacklisted by the next SMTP server in line, because of all the spam recently. That should also be logged via an SMTP failure/rejection message, again in the server logs (Sendmail, not BOINC). If different mail providers subscribe to different blacklisting services, that might explain why some ISPs let the mail through and others don't.

Seems it is BOINC. It may have been an update to sendmail in a Linux update. The other possibility is the UNI blocked port 25 outbound as part of some security update/upgrade.

I received an email today for a PM sent to me a few days ago. Very random, and like I said, I've never gotten email notifications in the past.

Others were having problems and it was reported over at the Boinc forums.

Eric has said there was a DNS problem.

I was one of the ones who reported missing emails, both from the SETI sites (including Beta) and from the BOINC site. The delayed BOINC messages arrived yesterday, and the SETI ones have appeared overnight. So it seems that a significant problem (which affected some, but not all, of us) has been identified and fixed. I'm surprised to hear that it's been attributed to DNS, but I haven't got any better insights.
