PM notification setting
« Thread started on: Nov 4th, 2016, 11:53am »
It's very easy to miss the forum setting for being notified by email if a Private Message arrives, which is an extremely useful feature especially if you don't often log in (and even if you do, the flashing 'new message' in the forum header can be far from obvious).
So I would highly recommend enabling the notification: generally receiving a PM is very infrequent so it won't significantly affect your email volume. The setting can be found by clicking on messages at the very top of the forum's home page (assuming you are logged in), then clicking preferences on the right hand side, and then changing the Notify by e-mail dropdown from No to Yes. Finally click Save Preferences to record the setting.
If you've changed your email address since originally registering with the forum, you might also want to check that it is set correctly in your profile.
