Have kept a few of the recent notifications of the problem - not sure this helps but received message Wednesday UK time 22.23 pm and Friday UK 22.50. Saturday UK 12.47  12.55  and 12.59 all saying my e-mail box was full at those times.

Maybe it is a problem with the email notification.  I never have understood why anyone would want their mailbox crammed with unnecessary junk mail. Just turn notification off; you can quickly look at RC to see if you have any new PMs or replies to your posts.

Only kept these because of the problem - usually delete daily or hourly - depending when I see them.

Just had another message saying "the box was full" - one of the same people as yesterday.  ???

Is there a reason for this happening or just a small gremlin that will correct itself ?

Hi Erato,

Will that mean you do not get notification if someone replies to an old post. I had 2 notifications of topics that I had posted in over 2 years ago. This helps to get new bits of info. I do clean my junk mail folder regularly, it is not too much of a hassle.

Hi

A very old thread but this might be the problem - you have to have the 'most recent personal  messages on top' ticked.

Thanks Gadget, that is how my messages are displayed.

This is still a mystery.

No, any responses to an old post, even a very old post, are in 'New Replies.'

Sandra,

I've just sent you a PM to see if we can try and work out what the problem may be.
