How To Add Email Notifications

When on the thread that you'd like to receive notifications of new posts on, click on the options link and choose subscribe.

Now you need to change the subscription to an email one.

Click on edit my preferences > notifications > subscriptions.

Now click on edit under the operations column on the subscription you'd like to get email notifications of.

In the send method drop down, choose HTML Mail.

Now click save subscription. You're done. You'll now get an email any time there is a reply to the thread.

Erin, will we need to subscribe thread by thread or will we be able to subscribe to all activity within a folder (like it used to be)??

YaY!  Some are working!
Some are being displayed in a weird format.

A good step I think/hope :)

It said I was successful - fingers crossed.  I feel victorious at the moment since that's about the only thing I've been able to change/edit in my settings so far.  :)

Question - will there be some sort of auto-subscribe feature on threads you've replied on or will you have to go through this manually for each thread you participate in?  I'm hoping the answer is yes.  LOL
