Comment: You probably think this comment is about you, don't you?
For the past couple of days I see that various threads I'm subscribed to have replies in them, but I'm either not getting an email saying it was updated, or they've been arriving extremely late (ie: several hours after I've already read the thread). Has this been happening to anyone else?

I don't use that feature on these boards - so I can't say.

What I can say is that e-mail is not instantaneous. You can get the e-mails you do have, and open the mail headers. With that you can see what is going on with the e-mail. See if it's being stuck in some random mail server before it's being passed on. If you weren't receiving any e-mails, and your e-mail was to Yahoo/Google or some other big free one, then I'd say it's on PB's side. They would need to configure the boards to utilize a true e-mail account, and not the standard SMTP relay that is built into the boards.

Google and Yahoo stopped allowing non-authenticated SMTP servers to cut down on spam e-mails.
