Sending messages to other cooks--is this feature working?

I used the "send me a message" feature to email two other Food52 cooks early last week and I don't think the messages went through. I got in touch with one of them via external email and she confirmed that she never received the message I sent through Food52.

Ahh, they were all in my spam folder. I had no idea I was supposed to look in my gmail.

Aaah, thank you, everyone. I'd communicated my problems with notifications (I'm getting a few but not getting a whole lot more). I hadn't thought about messages not getting through. You know what? I've come to like these site issues--it makes me appreciate the effort all the more.

where on the site do you go to check your messages? i can't find any sort of inbox anywhere...

Hey Jason, your messages will come to you via your email address you entered when you subscribed to Food52. To send a message you simply go to the cook's name and there is a tag to send. Hope this helps.

I have sent messages and got no reply, and I am not receiving any notifications, or replies on recipes or articles where I have posted. Mac/Chrome or Safari

Bevi, as Merrill said above, our developers are working on the notification and the 'send a message' feature problems which are technically related to each other. We hope to have a fix in place fairly soon.

We're still having trouble with some people not getting notifications, but we're working on it and are close, we think!

Thanks, Merrill. I have been sending messages to cooks who always respond and am fairly certain they are not getting them.

Should we expect to "wake up to 3 feet of snow" in our inbox once it's resolved or would it simply start woking from a certain day on without going retroactive?

Some people are getting messages (I am) but others are not.
