Stopped getting email for replies to posts in forums

Hello

I used to get an email when a reply was posted to something I'd asked in a forum.

The emails have recently stopped coming when a reply is posted, even though the box at the bottom of the page is ticked (Notify me when a reply is posted) and my email works normally otherwise.

I've checked in my account details and the email address is correct.

Has anyone any suggestions how I can sort this out please?

No idea really, I've just spent ages trying to get all the emails to stop Cheesy

Have you changed the setting in your Profile?

Always notify me of replies:

Sends an e-mail when someone replies to a topic you have posted in. This can be changed whenever you post. - Yes or No.


I changed mines to 'No' to stop the emails but I still had to go around all my old posts and 'stop watching this topic' at the bottom of each page.

Maybe you can figure out how to switch it back on from my description of how to switch it off.

Cheers

Thanks Zen.

In the profile, it is definitely ticked to send me an email when a reply is posted.
Funny old world, isn't it, that you should be trying to stop them and I'm trying to get them back. :roll:

I've yet to try prayer or writing to Tony Blair.
Not much hope then, really.

Strange problem, the default setting for the forum is no email notification, this is the first forum that I have ever registered with that has it switched on by default.

I can see why some people like it and I guess it's annoying when it stops working for you.

Have you asked a forum moderator to check out your forum account?

No I haven't.

I'm not sure I understand the question, but perhaps a passing forum moderator will check out my forum account?
Or do I need to contact one directly?
