    Hey guys,

    As you can see by the topics on the Apple Support forums (added below), there is a bug that causes the Notification settings to be reset after every restart or login

    I would like to hear if there are also people here with that problem and if anyone has already figured out a solution.

    For now there seems to be no fix. I have tried deleting preference lists, but that didn't work.

    Will try the nuclear option: clean install

    Same problem here, too. Not sure what's causing this, But I don't feel like doing a clean install, since too many settings that have to be redone....

    Thank you Bahamas1 for posting this! I just tried it and it after second restart the notification settings have stuck. I will let you know if the problem resurges, but at this moment it seems to have worked.

    After running this process, can I delete the Notification Center folder that I dragged to the Desktop?

    Worked for me, thanks. The key is the double reboot.

    Didn't work for me either. I suspect partly because I didn't have a "NotificationCenter" folder anywhere. I tried the rest of the steps but none of that panned out.

    Interestingly, this procedure worked for me, which is great, but I no longer have a NotificationCenter folder in my App Support folder. Not sure why. But it's working now, at least.

    It worked after 3 restarts

    Thanks for the tip @bahamas1. I'm not a Terminal kind of guy, but it worked for me—just took 3 restarts for Notification Center to update my Mail preferences.

    At the risk of asking a naïve question [because I tried this and it did not work for me] can someone for whom this worked please add to the description as I am confused as to how to reset the notification settings.

    I tried the process and after rebooting twice I reset the notification settings to what I wanted...is this incorrect...should I just keep rebooting until I end up with the notification settings I had [and wanted] before I started the process.

    Thanks.

    Created a MacRumors account to thank you! I had seen _most_ but not all of the discussions regarding this but this was new. And it worked. Thanks much!
