Getting Emails Sent To You...3-step Process

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:

  1. Be sure you have a valid/current email address in your profile

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 "gardenweb_user@gardenweb.com" 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.

Recently, GW added the ability to "follow" a thread that you did not start. To "follow" a thread, simply post to the thread and check the box that says:

"Check here if you would like post replies emailed to you."

However, please be sure you have preformed the first two steps in the first post of this thread.

[Reminder: Please, do not post to or bump this thread!]

This caught my eye since once again, email have stopped coming. I'm not new to this; I don't change my (correct) settings.

Sometimes it comes for awhile, then it stops. Then it starts. Currently it's stopped.
