Dailymail not received

Postby steveroe » Mon Oct 31, 2022 11:32 am

I realised over the weekend that I hadn't received a Dailymail from my Tivo for a little while (15th October seems to be the last I can find). I rebooted the Tivo last night expecting this to resolve the problem, but no email again this morning.

The Tivo has network access and the last section of the dailymail log reads:

------completed the jazzed dailymail program - v1.01/Altepg (02 May 2006) - thanks for your custom
------completed at 05:54:12


Nothing was received, and nothing in my spam folders either.

Please can someone check the logs at the altepg.com end and see if there are any errors recorded?

Thanks,

Steve

The server says it was sent ok.

My first thought is that gmail have started blocking our server - effectively treating it as spam. Can you try a different recipient email address (i.e. non-gmail) and see if that works?

I'm not sure I can change that, the release notes say "TiVo will send your daily email to the email address you specified when you registered your TiVo."

Ah yes good point. (You'd have to manually configure an email server in dailymail.cfg: so it's not a simple change.)

I wonder if it's just you or if it's more general...

Is there anyone else on here who gets their dailymail at a gmail address?

And more generally - is there anyone getting dailymail emails at all to any email address?

You could try changing the From address your emails go out from - maybe Google no longer likes the default.

Edit your dailymail.cfg (which is probably located at /var/hack/dailymail/dailymail.cfg )

Change section (2.2.4) from
Code: Select all
set sender "donotreply@altepg.com"
to
Code: Select all
set sender "donotreply@epg.me.uk"

Also, make sure you whitelist the email sender i.e. donotreply@altepg.com (or whatever you set it to)
