When people reply to my threads I don´t get an email

Postby jimdaworm » Tue Jan 13, 2004 7:27 pm

When people reply to my threads I don´t get an email. I have the option selected in my profile... but I only recieved a couple of messages when someone send me a personal message.

How can I get this to work??

The option to be notified when replies to your thread (or a thread you are involved in) are made, has to be enabled in your profile. Also when posting; there are four options below the text box - make sure that you have "Notify me when a reply is made" checked off (i.e. check mark in that box)

Also when you get an email for the response, be sure that you are clicking the correct link. The first link opens to the new post in the thread. The second link in the email is for "stop watching this thread".

just so everyone is clear on this.

If you get an email about a reply and DO NOT click on the link to view the message YOU WILL NOT receive addtional emails when more replies are made.

Here is the portion of the email you recieve it explains why you stopped getting replies. because you most likely did not click the link. You flipped over and browsed to it.

You can use the following link to view the replies made, no more notifications will be sent until you visit the topic.
