Problems with message notification?

Is it just me or is anyone else experiencing problems with the direct messaging? I got two PM's on Saturday, one today and only one notification.

Mark - have you stopped feeding the Gerbils?

We did the run again, checked the cave area and below this morning, nothing was there. It's either washed out or been recovered, hopefully.
