Notify/email bug on boardmod forum

hey, i changed my email (in my profile here), from mort@ezf.cjb.net - which points to mort@dsl.pipex.com, to mort@dsl.pipex.com.
Now all my notifications r gone from my notifications screen here except those which i have asked to notify me after i changed my email address here, apart from that, i am recieving all my old notifications, through what i guess is the mort@ezf.cjb.net address, and all my new ones through my mort@dsl.pipex.com address, meaning that sometimes, i am being notifyed 2 times to one post, or to my own posts.

basically, i am being emailed to an old email address i gave, which i dont think should happen, and all my notifications from when i had the old email address arent shown, although i think they may be if i change my address in my profile, back to the old address (mort@ezf.cjb.net)
i would try that, but i have to come off the cpu now thanx to my mum+dad Angry

this may just be a bug from yabb sp1 thats been fixed in sp1.1 (if so please tell me), but as (i think) some of you here are on the yabb development team aswell as involved with boardmod, i put it here Smiley

I've had this problem too. The reason is not a bug. When you notify a thread it adds your current email to the threads .mail file.

When you change your email address and then notify a thread again the email addresses are different.

There should be a way round this by when you change the email address it checks the notified threads and changes the email address. I will looki into it....

t-master posted a mod to the database which fixed a similar bug (Notification Bug Fix). Maybe it'll give some idea how to solve this bug.
