Re: To all users of Ancestry messaging service - heads up to you all

Why is this being discussed via the FamilyHistorian@groups.io Emails which have nothing to do with Ancestry?

 

Are you perhaps thinking of the old Rootsweb Email service that was taken over by Ancestry and recently abandoned?

Hi everyone  

For over 2 years I have had problems with this part of Ancestry.com/.co.uk.

 

Some/lots of messages I send to other users of Ancestry never find their way into their 'INBOX' - in fact they can only be found,  by the recipient, by using search methods even then you have to know from whom they came or what they are about.  The recipient does not receive an email informing them that have been sent a message either.

 

Despite innumerable queries raised by many, not only me, they are not correcting the problem.

 

It 'may' be that the subscribers who have had an upgrade to the Message Service do not have a problem.  But to those of us who haven't had the upgrade or have and maybe still have the problem, we will never know if our messages got thru to their intended recipient., unless we receive a reply - we are left wondering  if ............

I have wondered if the upgraded version cannot 'converse' with the non-upgraded version and vice versa.

 

Hope I've made this make sense.

 

Regards

Sheila
