Email alert


I am trying to set up email alert for my forum. I tried to follow the solution offered to other people (User Control Panel/Board Preferences/Edit Posting Defaults/Notify me on reply by default yes) but when I tried to send a test reply I don’t receive any email. I will find useful if my forum users can all receive email alerts.

Welcome to Sitepoint, @sugunasri;
There are many members here who - I am sure - have ventured down the very same path and can offer you great advice on your problem.

It would be very helpful if you can provide a bit more detail about your environment.

  • Who is the host?
  • What is the Control Panel?
  • What forum software are you using?
  • What language (PHP, Ruby on Rails, etc)?

Any other details about your system and set up would permit a more precise answer more quickly.
