Postby souldeep » Tue Aug 15, 2017 10:00 am

This is the second tutorial in a series on receiving email notifications.

The first tutorial can be found here - How to be notified via email: 1 - Receive Email to a Topic You've Posted in


Tutorial Synopsis

Are there topics you are reading, but not contributing any posts to? You would like to know when someone posts something new on that topic? Then this is the tutorial for you.

Visit your User Control Panel (UCP).

Click on the Board preferences tab located at the top of the UCP.

Conclusion & Notes

That's it. You will now receive emails whenever someone posts to a topic you've subscribed to.

Just like on the old forum, you won't receive an email for every post on the topic - you will only receive the first reply on the topic, since your last visit. This is by design. You do not need 100 email notifications for the same topic, if there were 100 replies. You only need to be notified that there are replies to the topic. Then you know to visit the forum and catch up on the topic.


To unsubscribe simply click on the Unsubscribe topic link as encircled in green in the following image.
