Whats the frequency of sending email updates to subscribed threads?



  • Would like to know what is the frequency of sending email updates to subscribed threads.

    Have noticed that at times I get updates quickly and some times its taking hours.



  • Also can we have a link on the right side where we can see all our subscribed threads.



  • There should be no delay on e-mails. Note that if you have enabled "Smart Updates" (it's the default) in your e-mail preferences you will only get notified on the first reply of unread subscribed threads.

    In the area where your gravatar is?

    I am getting the notified on first reply of unread subscribed threads. For some I get updates within minutes. For some it takes hours.

    If you have a look at the e-mail headers you can see the trip it makes to get to you. I get some late alerts as well, but it's always some exchange server that is slow in passing the mail along.

    So is the delay from QDN side - I am using gmail for receiving emails. So don't feel like there would be a delay at my end.



  • If you open one of the delayed e-mails in gmail and click on the option in this image:

    !http://developer.qt.nokia.com/uploads/image_upload/email_headers_in_gmail.png!

    and send me the header by "e-mail":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/email/2 I can have a look.



  • If you've clicked on the link in the first email, the thread seems to be marked as "read". So, if someone posts another reply two minutes later you get another notification. The more often you read the threads on DevNet the more often you get notifications :-)

    I almost check the thread as soon as I get updates and I am online. So that should not be the problem.



  • Do you have an example thread where you get that much notifications (and, if available, the date/time of the notification mails)? That would help to investigate further.

    I have emailed you.

    I will look for it next time and update.

    Are you a Troll? I thought all trolls have that troll logo on their profile.



  • Oh no, unfortunately I'm not a Troll, but read regularly on this forum for some time now.

    I know the effect of getting notified often - emails for this thread pop in minute wise :-)

    What I noticed:
    If a thread is busy, and I read the answers shortly after the notification arrives, I get a new notification immediately after someone replies again.

    Even my observation is same - say for this post I received quick update. But I still feel for some threads I am missing the updates. I will confirm that and update it.

    So by this post I just wanted to confirm that the updates are sent as soon as some one posts and ideally there should be no delay.



  • Ah. Ok. I never had the feeling I miss some update. Maybe some of the mails were quarantined in some virus oder SPAM checker?

    I will verify it and update. As of now everything seems to be working fine.



  • Update:

    For "this":http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/2099/ post, I didn't receive any update email for the post by xsacha. I saw it when I logged in and replied back after 40 mins of the posting.



  • Indeed, it is real-time here. Although email systems can sometimes be delayed (you see this warning often enough on websites giving you confirmation emails).

    My GMail updates with all these tamhanna replies ;)



  • [quote author="xsacha" date="1291445313"]My GMail updates with all these tamhanna replies ;)[/quote]

    And puts all messages in one chain. Thanks to Gmail :)
