I entered a couple of posts with "email notification of replies" checked.
However, I have never been notified when someone responded the post.

Is there some feature or setting I need to enable in order to receive notification?
Thanks, Tracey

There's a "Watch Topic" button at the top of topics. And a "Watch Forum" topic at the top of each forum. I have several Forums "watched" and I get email notifications. I know Jonathon has several forums "watched" because he asked me about the occasional spammers triggering an email on his watched forums (I installed a better spam bot blocker, by the way). I've also tested this with the ModuleRobot account. So there's 3 accounts the feature works on. I've never tried the Watch Topic. I can test that.

The first time I tried watching a forum, the emails were being sent to my spam folder in my email. Some people have complained that they do not receive the notifications and they say the emails are not in their spam folder. I don't know why some people would receive the emails and other's would not. They are being sent from this server--I can see the log. Once they leave this server, I can't control what happens. :( The times I "held someone's hand" and walked them through looking in their spam folder, the notification emails were really there. I would search the spam and all other folders for BibleSupport.com, www.BibleSupport.com, and also for josh@mrbond.com--they could appear as being sent from either.

For a nice Summary of your notification options and what threads/topics/forums are set to notify you when new material is added: http://www.biblesupp...a=notifications

You can also access this through the Settings menu in the top navigational bar. Settings/Notifications and also Settings/Topics Watched - Tracked
