Hi out there,
I'm curious if you guys get notifications in your mailbox about instant messages. Sometimes I get them immediately, sometimes not at all and that makes me saaad.

Hola Estefanía,

Thanks for bringing up this topic. I have also noticed that the notifications seem to follow some random, secret rules. Sometimes no notifications at all, and when they come, it can be any time between 5 minutes and 5 hours since the message was sent.

Now and then I need to contact colleagues quickly, only via instant messages, and at the end of the day it turns out that a message was laying around for several hours. I am sure that our ProZ staff can solve this problem.
