E-mail settings
« on: Friday 30 October 15 22:45 GMT (UK) »
I wanted to unsubscribe from e-mail notifications for one topic but mistakenly ticked the e-mail box in the wrong place and unsubscribed to any further e-mail notifications on any topic at all.

I am now confused and would appreciate any help. I tried to set my e-mail notifications under my profile and here are 2 images of how it is now set.  It doesn't make sense to me though as the second image shows that I am not receiving e-mail notifications on any board, despite the setting further up the page showing they are turned on.

Hope I'm making sense....... hard to explain   ???

Best wishes HL

If it's of any help, that is exactly how mine looks and I get email notification for every thread I've posted on, apart from the Totally off Topic ones.

Thanks for replying groom.

Unfortunately it's not working correctly though as I didn't get an email to say you had replied, I just noticed that you had.

Hopefully someone will be able to throw some light on what my problem is since all is working well for you.

I would hate to think it looked as though I am ignoring any replies I may get on the future because I do rely on the email notifications.
Best wishes HL

Hasn't gone into your spam folder has it, that happened once with mine and Sarah told me to look there?

Sorry for you; here's a test reply for you to evaluate.
                    Best of luck.

No unfortunately not.

 I wasn't notified of this reply either. I had Rootschat on my laptop and could see you had replied but didn't click on to view the post and had my Kindle on to see any emails but nothing arrived.

Somehow, I've really upset the applecart here  :)

On the other hand perhaps there is something wrong in the system and maybe Trystan or Sarah may see my posting (hopefully)

I don't have ticks against any of the threads listed on that page either.... presumably you're the same?

Pinot, you replied as I was posting and no I didn't get an email about your post either.
Best wishes HL

Why not PM Sarah and see if she can help?

Hi

First of all have others being getting notifications for posts on this thread?

Also, make sure the "Turn email notification on when you post or reply to a topic" in your profile is ticked and select "Save Settings"
