    Please confirm whether the issue is still being encountered or not anymore

    Hi,

    Is the word "anymore" still needed in the sentence below?

    Please confirm whether the issue is still being encountered or not anymore.

    Thanks.

    Re: Please confirm whether the issue is still being encountered or not anymore

    The "or not anymore" is redundant.

    ...whether the issue is being encountered or not.

    ...whether the issue is still being encountered.

    How about "...whether the issue is still being encountered or not"?

    Re: Please confirm whether the issue is still being encountered or not anymore

    I agree that you confirm that something is happening or confirm that it's not happening, or you determine whether or not something is still happening.

    I'd suggest:
    Confirm that this is still happening.
    Confirm that this is no longer happening.
    Let us know whether or not it's still happening.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    It's OK. The "or not" is not necessary, but it is a common phrase.
