Default not getting email notifications for new posts in threads subscribed to

I don't quite know where this posts, but I am not getting new email notifications for new posts in threads I am subscribed to.

I checked settings for my account, and that seems set up right.

I forget if you are supposed to check something under a thread that you are subscribed to?

I just decided quote a post in one of my threads (without adding anything new) - it shows there that it is set to show instant email notifications.

I don't know what is wrong.

Happy Re: not getting email notifications for new posts in threads subscribed to

Yes, follow thru with FAQs. When enabling notifications of new replies, did you add your email address in the Edit Email & Password tab? There are several steps to customize receiving notifications whether while poring over threads and receiving instant notifications in your private message box and/or having notifications sent to your (specified) email address.

I think things are set up correctly.

But when I look a the page you linked, I do not see the "Forum Tools" link that is mentioned.

My notifications were going to my email program's junk mail...are yours? I had to add the address webmaster@saturnfans.com to the safe senders list (sometimes called Whitelist) in my email program. Then the notifications started arriving to my inbox.
What do you use for email?

Without being disrespectful, I don't think that you read through that FAQ item carefully enough. The instructions provided a guide to locate where the "Forum Tools" would be found.

Example: if you went to the Community Center

http://saturnfans3.saturnfans.com/~s...splay.php?f=16

and scrolled down to "Threads in Forum" and then looked to the right of that title in the same horizontal box/bar you would see "Forum Tools" followed by "Search this Forum."

I use Gmail. I just checked the Spam folder, and nothing from this site is going there.

Pretty sure non-white-listed stuff never goes directly to the Junk folder. I think only stuff I delete goes there.

I don't find your response helpful. I clicked on the link you gave but don't see something that says "thread in forum"

When I looked at "Subscriptions" under "User Profile Features", I read I should find a "Forum Tools" link above the list of threads. I do know how to read and I read that. But I did not see a forum tools link.

K, Since I don't know what you have done so far and since nothing is going to Gmail spam. Let's make sure SaturnFans is set correctly.

Go to User CP
Then Edit email & password
Make sure your correct email is there.
Then check in Edit Options under Messaging & Notification
This is how mine looks, if yours is different, set it to match.

I guarantee you that the link I provided has that link present and where I said it was. Nevertheless, I'll direct you to another Forum and perhaps you'll see the item in question there. It appears that you own an S-Series car so go to an S-Series Forum (e.g. S-Series Tech).

http://www.saturnfans.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=39

Where you see all of the thread titles, look at the header bar above in a light grey shaded area and you'll see "Threads in Forum: S-Series Tech." Then look directly to the right of that to a black shaded area that reads "Forum Tools" followed by "Search this Forum." That's the location of the Forum Tools link.
