New here and need help

debbie_2008February 20, 2008

I've read the help pages and still clueless about email update notifications.

I would like to receive email updates for threads started by me or threads I have posted on. On the threads started by me, I've checked to receive updates, but I'm not receiving anything. My email addy is correct or I wouldn't have received the confirmation when registering.

Thanks! (Now I must remember to check this one since there are never any email notifications)

I'm not too sure the email alerts/updates work. I'm pretty sure I've checked the box to receive them on more than one occasion, but never received a one.

Of course, I could be mistaken and just thought I checked the box....!

I'm thinking it doesn't work! It should would be nice if did.

It used to work, but lately it does not. So it's probably not you :) It's just a GW twitch.

I've had no problems w/the emails concerning threads I've started. However, even when you check the box that says:
Check here if you would like copies of follow-ups to your message emailed to must also have the box in your profile checked that says:
Allow other users to send you email via forms at our site.

See the "Your Profile" link at the very top of the page.

Also, check your "Junk Email" mailbox, if you have one. I often find responses in my "Junk Email" box b/c Outlook thinks it's junk/spam.

Unfortunately, you can opt for email notifications only for those threads you've started...not ones you've responded to.
