I currently don’t receive any notification mails from the forum for a longer time now. This is why I am posting this.
I have dozens of topics that I have set to Watching and have the settings set to notify me always about any changes in these topics.
Also I have set the Settings to send me a Message when someone is replying to me or when someone has tagged me with my username.
But nothing happens … I even reverted all of my changes to the default and let them sit for a couple hours before reinventing my preferred setting. I’ve done this 7 times in the last 3 weeks using either safari or chrome on my iPhone or one of my Macs - and also using the DiscourseHub iOS Application.
Everything I’ve done including waiting a few hours or even days has taken no fruit …
Even the DiscourseHub Application is not sending me notifications all the time but that is another thing what I am eventually going to bring up on the Discourse Meta.
Every forum I am in my icloud.com address is used from day one of the registration until today and I am using automation to prevent as much as possible to move forum based mails back to my inbox if it happens that my account adresses them as spam.
Also I’m up to 8 times a day in the Mail, whether it’s the iPhone or the Mac Application.
From every forum that’s based on the discourse software I receive my mails the way I like it to have and they even get automatically sorted well most of the time. The only one forum is this forum where I receive absolutely no email …
Unfortunately icloud.com is rejecting a lot of email.

That said there haven't been any bounces for you since April 5.
As far as I'm aware the forum follows the “best practices” quoted on that document.
Well, we‘ll see if it happens to work again as it should. Normally it should work now as intended - without turning on Mailing List Mode.
Thanks Chris (@ccstone) for pointing me there - maybe I’ll consider it for the future … but not now …
I am - as I said earlier in many other Discourse platform based forums - where I have nearly the same settings for mails as I have for this forum - and had no issues so far in getting notifications with my icloud.com address.
And as far as I am aware I didn’t turn on the Mailing List Mode either for each one of them.
