One of the features of Forum is that you can choose to “follow” a particular Subject ... Or even a particular Post. If you do, you will get an email whenever a new post or comment made. do this by clicking on the FOLLOW option on the right side of the subject or post. If you want to unfollow, just click on it again and you won’t get the emails ... but you can see all the new stuff whenever you go to Forum.
I think, but I'm not sure, that you will get an email from the Forum if: 1. anyone comments on a post you have made -- or -- 2. you choose to follow a particular Subject. I won't be sure exactly how this works until more members start engaging in the Forum and give me feedback. I don't want anyone burdened with unwanted emails -- but on the other hand it is a positive way to keep a conversation going in the Forum. Let me know how you feel about this as you get "engaged". Thanks, Gail I'll post an update to this when I know more.
