Is anyone having major delays of e-mail notifications for Replies to posts, or PM's? Mine are taking well over 2 hours to arrive when they used to take less than a minute. Could ba a problem with Yahoo mail (my provider) but wanted to see if anyone else is having the same troubles...

We've taken a look into this. At the time this was happening due to a flood of email coming into the system. It all appeared to be junk spam, so the outgoing mail queue backed up with undeliverables, so all outgoing mail was taking a long time to deliver.
Here's what we've done. We've set up a "white-list" of all Dropzone.com emails. This means, the server will automatically reject any email coming to us that is not addresses to a person with an account on Dropzone.com. Hopefully this will prevent this kind of block where we have to send a load of "message can not be delivered" notices out because of spam trying to get in to users who don't exist.
