How to receive Forum replies via email

Forum replies via email

This guide is to help show how to setup email notifications of replies to and from forum posts.

In this example we will show how to setup for email notifications in the category of FreeSWITCH.

  • Go to the top right Preferences > Notifications > Categories

  • If you want every top level post and all replies to trigger an email, you’ll want to add the ‘FreeSWITCH’ Category to ‘Watched’.

Top Level Post

If you want to only be notified of the top level post, so you can decide if you’re interested in each topic, you’ll add FreeSWITCH under Watching First Post instead.

  • After that, go to Preferences > Notifications > Email and set Email me when I am quoted, replied to, my @username is mentioned, or when there is new activity in my watched categories, tags or topics to ‘Always’.

With this setup you don’t actually have to log in every 180 days to confirm you still want the emails.
