Some SharePoint users doesn’t receive alerts

I struggled with a weird problem today. I have pages library where users can insert pages through custom forms (it is public facing site, so I really don’t want to expose system pages to everybody). When new page is inserted to library then also alert will be created so user who owns the page gets e-mail when administrator approves or declines the page. Some users were not able to receive e-mails. There were no errors, no warnings – everything seemed to work normally.

Okay, there is simple solution. If you can be sure that SMTP settings are okay then check out if problematic users have read permission to list. I mean read permission not any restricted permission. After giving read permission to problematic users everything started to work.
