Email notifications for a topic


(Sian White) #1

Apologies for what is probably a very simple question.

I don’t understand the notification settings. How do I (or a user) set it up to receive email notifications about posts in a thread that they haven’t started?

Thanks in advance for any help!

Set the notification level for the topic to “watching” via the notification control at the bottom of the topic, or in the right gutter of the topic (on desktop).

Note that emails will only be sent if you are not active on the website at the time of the notification.
