    Other email notifications are instantly.

    Mike, "through your control panel" should allow your profile (where you are currently set to "instant") to control the subscription.

    Reply To: deadletter @largeformatphotography.info without the space before the @ sign.*

    Your email currently has no Reply To tag, so responses go to the From email address.

    *note: I had to include the space so the da**ed parser would stop flagging it as an email address.
    That's one option. Thanks, Leigh.

    The problem of doing that, or simply ignoring the errant responses, is that it could lead to communications errors between members.

    Re: email notification problem

    This is not a big deal. I AM getting instant emails from the 'regular' parts of the board. The 'for sale' forum is still sending once-a-day emails with all the postings. Maybe there is a separate switch for the 'for sale' and the rest of the "Community" section?

    I have un-subscribed and subscribed to see if that changed anything it didn't.

    Thanks, no rush - just if you have time.

    John

    Hi Ralph,

    Have set that, but still no instant messages.
    Only getting direct messages from messages I replied to.

    Hi Ralph,

    I was __assuming__ that the notification emails came from a unique email account, distinct from inter-member and other communication.

    Perhaps not.

    Your guess about subscriptions within the "Community" forums may be correct, John. However, a quick scan of admin configuration options doesn't show any obvious answers.

    All automated responses from the system come from a single e-mail ID, the same ID used for "Contact Us" inquiries.

    OK. The easy/simple solution would be to change that.

    Re: email notification problem

    On closer inspection, it appears the "Instant" mode (one e-mail notification per post) is only available for thread subscriptions, not forum subscriptions. With forum subscriptions, one e-mail per day is sent.

    Tom is going to look for a plug-in that can get around that limitation.
