First off, thank you for your donation!
I think part of the issue is everyone might be somewhat confused on what you are experiencing issues with. You keep referencing "the development forum" We are in the forums right now, it appears you're speaking about our bug tracker... different system.
@humdinger was correct, Haiku, Inc. doesn't manage the bug tracker or any of the other infrastructure services. It's run by a team of unpaid volunteer administrators doing it in their free time.
I checked the logs and do see the emails going out to you and the MSN servers are accepting the emails:
2017-10-20T10:02:41.745445+02:00 vmdev postfix/smtp: 8E946683C9: to=<chuckcmagee AT msn.com>, relay=baron.haiku-os.org[220.127.116.11]:25, delay=4.2, delays=0.19/0.01/3.9/0.08, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as A46163701F57)
I'd check your spam box at your msn.com account. We really don't have any control on what msn classifies as spam.
Let us know if you find it.
