No Comments (Update)

Having just sent a message to my Yahoo spam folder that came from YouTube, I was a bit worried that I might lose all future comments from that source. SO I decided to check my spam folder or the first time ever.

I was staggered to find that all the comments that appeared on my blog but not in my inbox had been filtered out by the spam guard. SOME OF THEM WERE THE EMAILS OF MY OWN POSTS!

I have had to turn the spam guard off.

Meanwhile, since getting this new computer, I have found that no one's avatars appear on any blog comments pages. I'm sure there's an easy way to alter my security settings to allow this, but I haven't the time or patience at the moment to hunt for the solution. ANy ideas, anyone?

Wish I could help with the avatar problem, but that one has me stumped. Some, but not most, of my blog message notifications go into spam, so I just check the spam folder daily, "checkmark" the misdirected messages, and move them to my in-box.

My avatars show up w/ no problem when I'm using google chrome as my browser, but I always have to allow permission to see them on internet explorer.

I have no idea what you just said so obviously I'm as useful as a chocolate teapot here ;0)

What are you talking about?!!! Seriously, I can't help you because I'm zero in computing!

Jazzy, I thought we had it nailed there. Unfortunately I use Internet Explorer and the appropriate box doesn't match up with the Mozilla one. Bugger!

Not sure what the problem is with the pictures, I haven't used IE for a long time :-(

In Yahoo, you should be able to get the Blogger e-mails to go to your inbox by clicking 'not spam' above one in your spam folder..I think anyway. Be better than turning spamguard off altogether

My fault. I falsely assumed the boxes match.

Oh, Jazzy, why would they make it easy when they can make it hard? It's not your fault, it's "theirs".

Thank you Val!
