    it seems to be working again today, but must have been an issue with the system. Can you tell me how issues are notified or where i can log them. thanks

    I am not receiving Order notifications and I haven't been since 23 Aug. Did something happen that day? I've changed the e-mail address in an attempt to make certain my address wasn't the problem and still no luck.

    Any ideas? I've seen it before where for a short time e-mail didn't make it to me but never for this amount of time.

    It also appears that the remote calls stopped on the 23rd as well? I didn't make any changes and I can't see anything that's incorrectly set in my cart.

    I did a "debug" and it's telling me that:

    Subject: Mal's e-commerce - remote HTTP fetch

    Remote connect to returned the following:

    Connection failed: couldn't connect to host

    (I replaced my actual path with the "x's" but the path is correct. Is there a DNS resolution issue perhaps? That would explain both my e-mail and remote call problem.

    Mal does not check the forums. I suggest sending him a message directly. He probably knows and is working on it but it can't hurt.

    Thank you, Debbie. I sent an e-mail so he'll see it. It might be that I don't know the actual meaning of "Connection failed: couldn't connect to host" could be a refusal or a resolution failure.
