@Aarskin the emailing process has been reworked lately. let us know how that goes… do you get every email from a Watched Topic?

I’m testing this on our instance now. What’s the expected turnaround time on getting an email?

I just posted a topic to a category I’m watching, iADS

But I’ve yet to get an email (been 3-4 minutes now). I don’t seem to be getting anything for posting, replying or editing, but maybe because I made the topic myself?

Didi you turn Send me email notifications even when I am active on the site ?


(Aarskin) #6

That gives me a desktop notification, but still no email - even when I’m not the original poster

Are you trying to get emails on old topics?

If so, you might want to review this thread:

Thanks for the thought, but I am only interested in new topics/replies/edits.

It seems that closing the site’s tab entirely does the trick ( so I’ll need to tweak my workflow a bit :confused: )

It would be nice to have the setting intuitively do what it explicitly says, however.
