How do I change the forum posts notification email address?

Does anyone know where you change the email address used for notification of new posts to a forum thread? There seems to be no box in my forum profile control panel, and the 'edit details' section of the 'account details' part of the portal already has a different contact address to the one I currently get notifications on, so that isnt it.

The current address is on a domain now moved away from PN, and for some reason I no longer get notifications on it.

Unfortunately the address can only be changed by a the Moderating Team.

If you want to PM me the address you want your notifications to be sent to, I'll get it changed over for you.

Hi there,

Anyone with admin access should be able to do this. PM me your details (including the address you want your notifications sent to) and I will sort it when I get a spare minute.

Out of curiosity, is there a reason we cant do it ourselves, or is it just a case "as it has been, so shall it always be"?

Someone decided to remove the option for changing email addresses when PHPBB was deployed here some years ago... and it's never been reinstated.

A suggestion: Add an radio button option to have the emails sent to "portalforums@username.plus.com". The user can either create a mailbox of that name or a redirect to the mailbox to which they want the emails sent.
