Recently I have created some topics, but I don’t receive any notification when others reply on it. Additionally, I noticed that a half year ago someone sent me a PM, but never heard about it in my email.
First assuming that my email settings were incorrect, I checked those. But everything is enabled.
Yeah it’s no longer coming from GMail, so sending should be a bit faster. Without looking at WP internals, I’d venture a guess that posting should be faster as well since we are no longer waiting for the SMTP connection
