Weird messages

Hi anyone else getting email notifications that a member has emailed them 

but they haven’t when you check ?

From about Thursday last week there were some server issues when the demand on our website increased quite dramatically (and has continued since). We ended up with quite a large backlog in the mail queue (over 2 million email notifications) which only started clearing late yesterday.

 

Many would have been receiving email notifications to say a member had sent them a private message. When you clicked on it, there was no PM as you had likely already read it when logging into SN previously.

 

I had many of these myself come through yesterday. The queue is almost cleared, and we have brought additional servers online to manage the website demand. All should right itself within a day or two now.

Thanks for the explanation @Marc  I’d also been receiving email notification for PMs sent ages ago that I’d already read.

When you say ages ago, do you mean since Thursday last week (possibly Wednesday even)?

Thanks for the info. It will resolve itself and clear the backlog. Some messages may have been sent, but the receiving servers may have sent an error back so the system tries again. It will clear.

Haha glad this was explained.

I may have got this the wrong way around, but if anyone has received a message from the ether with next Saturday's winning Lotto numbers then please send it through to me, I am the rightful recipient.

This queue has cleared itself now, and as of just now we've brought more servers online at great expense, unfortunately.

We should be in a good place now with extra headroom to cope for the increased traffic the site is seeing at present.
