Does PCA really receive these webmaster e-mails?

I am just wondering when the PCA server can't cope and an error page with the following appears does the Webmaster REALLY get sent an e-mail?

"An Error Has Occurred

You have accessed this Page incorrectly. This could be because you have mistyped a URL, or have tried to access a page that does not exists or has been removed. An email has been sent to the webmaster notifying them of this problem."


IF he does he must get sick of the site of them!

Evening CurlyWhirly, I don't know but I've had a few recently. I'm always doubtful about these error messages and those you send to Microsoft, you never seem to get a response.

each time it happens - which is why you might detect the slightest hint of a tetchy atmosphere when I see yet another thread telling all and sundry that the site is experiencing page loading problems. We already know about the problems, because we've received an avalanche of emails from the server.


In the normal course of events I receive hundreds of emails a week from forum members anyway, so you can imagine what my inbox looks like.

In my 21.17 post I was referring to Microsoft not PC Advisor.
The point I was trying to make was that even though work is going on in the background and you know about the server problems, the Webmaster must get fed up to the teeth with the fact that an e-mail is sent EVERY time someting goes wrong with the server.
No offence intended.

I was simply confirming the fact that an email is received for each error - it has to be, otherwise we wouldn't get any at all. Nobody gets fed up to the teeth - we obviously don't read them, they're just reminders.
