    I'm longer getting any Youtube email notifications to all channels that I have subscribed to, even though I have all the settings enabled.
    Thank You,
    Gary

    Originally Frontier Mail, now GMail.

    Considering G-Mail and YouTube are from the same company, I would suggest to check your YouTube settings then under notifications make sure that this is not set to None:

    Also check your Spam folder to ensure that it's not going there.

    Perhaps you clicked on Unsubscribe on one of their emails?

    I subscribed to one YouTube channel and I haven't received notices in over a year. They just stopped coming. This person uploads new videos almost daily
    https://www.youtube.com/user/MissOrchidGirl
    the top three show 2 days ago, yesterday and several hours ago today.

    So I've taken to just see what has been uploaded.

    Just to show you, it says I'm subscribed yet I never get notices.

    strange... i get bombarded on mine lol although it only happens on 2 subscriptions and the others I don't see any... hmmm

    I think I have it... maybe YT changed something but the Bell Icon is the notifications.

    upload_2019-5-28_14-54-10.png means no notifications

    upload_2019-5-28_14-54-38.png means I get notifications

    I will try this on one that i know shows it's off and see if i get anything.

    Thanks for that. I clicked on the bell and got this popup

    So I changed it from occasional to all and saved it. Occasional for me amounted to not getting any notifications.

    I found out what happened, I found the emails in the All Mail folder.

    All the emails in All Mail shows where the original is located.

    Meanwhile, I'm getting daily emails about the orchid videos now that I learned about the bell and its settings.
    She'll be changing from 5 times a week to 3 times a week videos which is more manageable.

    Awesome news. :)

    Gary, if you found them in All Mail, then you should see a label next to the Subject to find out exactly what folder it's stored in.

    In these cases all are in the Inbox folder.
