PLEASE help. Why am I not getting emails?

islanddevilSeptember 21, 2012

OK I'm sure this has been asked and answered a million times, but I've searched and still can't find the answer.So I'll start by apologizing for a million and one.

Please, can someone tell me what I have to do to get email notices when there is a response to something I've posted? So many great threads I'm interested in or posted to and I can't keep track of them especially if I'm not in here every day. Hoping an email notice will solve that problem.

Here's what I've done.

As I write this I see a box below that says' "Check here if you would like post replies emailed to you". Did that.

Then went to my Profile page and put a check mark in the box that says "Allow other users to send you email via forms at our site".

And still no emails. What am I missing?

Appreciate your help and your patience if you've seen this Q before. Thanks!

Hi, island. I went to your member page and it doesn't say "send me an email," so your email is not enabled, although you did what you're supposed to do. Try going to "Member Pages," then "Edit my Profile" and check the box again. If you go there and the box is already checked, is it possible that your email is typed wrong? If it's neither of those, I'm stumped and I defer to the experts.

This happens many times with people who don't originally register with their email enabled. No matter how many times they go back in after the fact to add their email following the instructions, it never works. Quirk in the antiquated GW operating system. It wouldn't hurt, after you've tried unsuccessfully on your own a few times, to email Tamara, the forum administrator, about your issue.

Thank you for your replies and suggestions.

Ginny, checked my email address and it's OK. Tried unchecking and rechecking again so will see what happens.

Breezy, I didn't originally sign up with email enabled, Changed it later and could have sworn I got emails, but that was at least a year ago. Only recently back trolling the boards. Thanks for telling me about Tamara; I'll contact her if other suggestions don't work.

Appreciate your help!
