I just reread another post where I was not able to be reached via email per another GW member. IS there a way to make it turn on or post it somehow?
go to "YOUR PROFILE" at the top of the page (next to the ivillage GardenWeb title a the top), log in, and you'll have an opportunity to click a button that allows for emails (or not).
Check out the "Read Me" thread on the Discussions side of Kitchens. Scroll down to the post w/the subject "Getting Emails Sent To You...3-step Process".
Right now, you're probably not getting these replies b/c you don't have email turned on in your profile.
OK...I'll just post the "3-step process" here...
Getting Emails Sent To You...3-step Process
There are three things you have to do to get emails sent to you when someone posts to a thread you started:
Again in your profile, be sure you have the "Allow other users to send you email via forms at our site." box checked (at the bottom of the profile page)
Be sure to check the box labeled "Check here if you would like copies of follow-ups to your message emailed to you" when you submit your post. (Below the "Message" box)
Hmmm...maybe a 4th step...don't forget to "Save Your Member Profile" when you make changes! (button at bottom of profile page)
If you do all 3 (or 4!) things, you should get an email when someone posts to your message.
Note: Some members have said they still have problems getting emails. I seem to always get emails, but I have noticed that occasionally there will be a several hour delay and once there was a several day delay...I don't know why.
Also, check your Junk Mail, sometimes the emails end up there. Add "firstname.lastname@example.org" to your "safe senders" list as well.
If you still don't get emails, check with your internet service provider and be sure emails from GW are not being filtered out as junk before they get to you.
