e-mail notification

paddy_99September 3, 2008

When I post a message even though I check the box to have follow ups mailed to me I never receive any and is there any way to receive notification of replies I have made to topics I did not start? If anyone can understand this you have me beat. Thanks.

Paddy, the only way I know to keep track of threads is to bookmark them. I'm interested to see if others have found a different way.

As for emailing, check your spam filters.

There can be two reasons you're not receiving the emails:

  • You didn't check the "Check here if you would like copies of follow-ups to your message emailed to you." box when you created/started the post

  • You don't have the email option turned on in your profile.

To turn the email option on:

  1. Go to "Your Profile" (see top of page, above GardenWeb banner)

You will have to log in again Check to be sure the email address entered is the correct one Scroll down to bottom to shaded area. Check the box that says... Allow other users to send you email via forms at our site. Click the "Save Your Member Profile" button

You're done! I don't know if it's retroactive for current posts, but all future posts should have replies emailed to you....assuming you checked the "Check here if you would like copies of follow-ups to your message emailed to you." box when you create a new post.

Note that this only applies to posts/threads that you start. There is no way at this time (that I know of) to keep track of someone else's threads other than to bookmark them as Loves2Cook4Six mentions.

For some strange reason the e-mail notifications started yesterday.
