  • Hi,

    You have to check the box Alert me while posting/replying to a thread.

  • I do have the problem that I checked the messenger options and the mail, but the messenger doesn´t come up with any notifications. I had that once and it was fixed manually by some operation team internally. Is there any contact I can ping for ?

  • I am not getting alerts either.

  • Ok turns out that my alerts were set to Messenger, rather than Email.  My messenger account name is the same as my email address, so this wasn't immediately obvious when I had checked earlier.  I have updated this now, and imagine it will resolve the issue.

  • Ok well I am still not receiving alerts, after fixing the alert notification setting - so something else must be wrong.

  • Fixed since then. A common issue now is that your settings got wiped and need to be reset.
