Bug I've reported: Adobe Tracker email notifications seem to have ceased in 2024

I just posted this bug report, but I want to mention it here not only to spread the news of the issue but also to ask whether others can confirm the issue. For more, here is the tracker ticket:


If you have experienced the issue, please add a vote to the ticket.

And here is the text of what I wrote, for those it may help:

Has anyone else gotten emails from this tracker system in recent months?

Whereas previously I'd get several emails a month (such as when Adobe may respond or others may comment), I've not gotten any email notifications in all of 2024 to now. The last such email I got was Dec 5 2023

Those emails would normally come from the address [email protected]. It was never clear if that was someone or something. I just mention this in case this stoppage of email sending is somehow related to that account being removed for some reason.

Yep, same. Good catch. I left a comment on the ticket for _this_ issue.

I always assumed it was intentional... this way it enabled Adobe to close the tickets due to no activity and/or response. This has already happened to me a couple times over the past years when I haven't received any email, but my ticket was closed.

Whenever I receive email notifications of issues that I'm following, I return to the tracker website and manually add changelog notes to the comments. Their system doesn't publicly track this information, so the info will only exist if users manually enter it in for them.

James, on your second paragraph, are you talking perhaps about changes to the status, like "to fix"or "need more info"? Yep, those are not sent to everyone, so I also often add comments about that.

But I don't want to presume that this ceasing of ANY email notifications is due to them secretly wanting to prevent people coming back to interact. I really think it's a mistake of some sort.

Let's hope they get to it soon.
