I have not been sent notification emails from subscribed threads recently. (No matter whether I select yes/no by being asked: "You will not receive notification emails while actually using the site" as the attached image shows.)

In addition, my email account can send and receive emails sent by others normally, your investigation would be highly appreciated.

You've posted in the right place.
I tested this, using the email provider you use, and I seem to be getting email notifications correctly, including to subscribed threads. Is it just threads where you have clicked on "subscribe" that are the problem, or are you getting no email notifications from here at all, even to threads like this one that you have posted to?
I see that my post above triggered an email notification to you. Did you get it?

Thanks for your replies. Emotion: smileI received successfully two notification emails related to this thread (replied by you).

Interesting, I have not been sent notification emails recently by creating the original posts on the following forums (which I did not explain precisely):

1) General English Grammar Questions

2) General English Vocabulary & Idiom Questions

Your further investigation would be highly appreciated.
A couple of thoughts:
While you are logged in the system won't send emails. In trying to reproduce the problem I noticed that it would sometimes take a few minutes for the system to realize I had logged out, and I would get desktop notifications instead of emails for replies posted before the system noticed I was gone. Could this account for your missing email notifications?
The engineers found and fixed a couple of bugs in the email system at the beginning of November. Did you experience these problems before then, or since then, or both?
Is there anything else you've noticed that would help us track down the problem?

Thank you for the detailed information. I'll test it some more tomorrow, and then pass on your report and whatever I discover to the engineers.
