How do I get email notifications when people reply???

Post by MiraclesHappen » Sun Jun 24, 2018 5:02 am

Hello everybody,
I joined the community less than a week ago, and set all the notifications to send email. However, though people have been answering to my posts, I haven't been receiving any email notifications?

What else am I supposed to do?
Thanks!

I'm assuming you mean that you've checked the email options here. ucp.php?i=ucp_notifications&mode=notification_options
Then it should help to subscribe to your own topics. Use the subscribe option in the drop down list under the 'spanner' button at the foot of the page.
The image of a tick box with a check mark is misleading: you are not subscribed by default, you need to click on the option (and after that the text will change to 'unsubscribe').

Also, and this is something that's easy to overlook and I had completely forgotten about: the setting in Board Preferences => Posting Defaults.

If your issue is solved, kindly indicate that by editing the first post in the topic, and adding [SOLVED] to the title. Thanks!
