How to receive emails to telling me somone has posted to a topic I began

7 posts in this topic

I am not receiving an email when someone posts to a topic I began. Why?

I have looked at my profile. Everything seems to be in order. I used to get such emails.

Thank you for replying. I did get an email telling me that you had replied, but I have not received emails for replies in the last week or two. (I am only intermittently active.)

I checked "My Settings". My email address is correct, and for Notification method to use for replies to followed topics, email is checked.

Am I correct in thinking that followed topics includes topics that I started?

Only if you have set the setting to automatically follow topics that you started. (or else you have to manually set the 'follow this topic' on your topic.)

I don't see "automatically follow topics that you started" in My Settings. Please tell me where to find it.

- Page: My Settings.

- Tab: Notification Options.

- Subject: Topics & Posts. (top of notification options list.)

- Toggle: "Auto follow topics I reply to.", set to On.

+ Option: "Notification frequency", set to something other than 'None'

That should do it I think. As I did not see a option for something like 'Follow topic I create'. Thought that I had seen one, but that was this option.

Thanks for the guidance. I find that I already have "Auto follow topics I reply to." set to On and the "Notification frequency" set to "Immediate". Strange.

BTW I did receive notification of your reply by email.
