    Yes. Click on Settings (top right of the screen), scroll down to and click on General Settings on the left-hand side of the page, then go to Messaging & Notification and use the dropdown to choose how often you would like to be emailed.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    You always get notifications one way or another. Some people get them by email. Others do not.

    If you don't want your email inbox flooded with messages, it's a lot easier to click on "Quick Links" at the top, and then choose "Subscribed Threads". You will then get a screen that shows every thread you've started or taken part in, and those with new responses will be in bold.

    I don't even go that far- I just click on the What's New button and scroll back a page or two to get back to where I left off yesterday.

    But doesn't that show you everything new, including threads you haven't taken part in?

    Re: notification

    That's what I thought. I was just trying to help Fwvo to find what he/she is looking for. In fact, I realised that clicking on "Quick Links" and then "My Threads" is actually a better way to find responses to your own threads.

    I have the similar question with the OP, but my question is not get the notification via Email, but the notification from the forum.

    For example, yesterday I asked "teechar" a question on a thread of other forum member's about his correction, and I don't have a forum notification from the forum after "teechar" replied to me.

    This function is usually available on some forums.

    I wonder whether or not this function works here. I'm not sure if I miss something.

    By the way if I would like to request a certain person to reply, will it work when I @ someone's ID?

    Could you or anyone else help me about the questions above ?

    Thank you!

    Please correct my writing if there's any grammatical solecism.

    Re: notification

    Hi, the forum can only provide email notifications of replies to your subscribed threads. Unfortunately, you can't @ anyone in the forum either in the way you describe.

    Sorry we can't be more help!
    I'm not a teacher, so please consider any advice I give in that context.
