  • Kevin,

    When you are posting something to a forum, you can checkmark the box at the bottom that says: "Alert me when someone responds to this post".  Also, in your Alerts section for your account, you can setup Alert settings under "Configure Alerts".  You can also get here by going to "My Settings".  You can setup the email address you want the alerts sent to, and if by default you always want an email when you post something.

    In the future questions like this should probably be posted in one of the general help forums like the "Forums Issues" forum.

  • Kevin, you have to go to "My Settings" enter an email, and then it'll send you a confirmation that you have to click after that gets delivered to the email you put in. From that point forward, you click "Alert Me" on any thread you want to get email updates for or when you reply you will see an additional option to "Alert me when someone responds to this post". Good luck!
