Could you guys maybe help me gather some evidence? What I know so far:
Problem has started on Thursday, guys affected include DHC, HOOTIE, Lofunzo and wrveres. Arlo and me get them alright.
Hint: All of them (DHC, HOOTIE, Lofunzo and wrveres) have AOL/Earthlink email addresses (I believe those two companies are linked, aren't they? ). Did I ever mention that AOL sucks? Anyway, that's the hottest theory so far (the only one at that).
Anyone else getting or not getting reply notifications?
Sorry for the late reply, some problems over here, hard drive crash (my private one), cold/flu, etc...

- Our provider made a security update for some of the software. Could be the source of such a problem, but very unlikely for several reasons. If it's the cause, I would expect _nobody_ to receive notifications.
- One or several providers "improved" their spam filters. Since reply notifications (just like spam) are automatically generated mass mail, they are sometimes treated like spam if a filter is configures badly.
Might or might not be true - but those are the only two possibilities I can think of.

Lo...I don't know if you are having anyother problems with 9.0.....but this one is not caused by it......I have 8.0 and HOOTIE has an older one than that.....It is an update that AOL has done to their servers...
