Tim,

It was elusive problem to find but I did eventually track it down in the deepest darkest recesses of the sendmail configuration file.... I think it should now be working properly. Not sure how the bug ever crept in there in the first place. What did it take to fix it ? Removal of a single stray "b" in the file! That was AFTER checking that there was nothing wrong with the BBS software. Hey ho....

Cheers,

Pat.

Been through the FAQ and the User Control Panel and cannot see where the preferences are set on how you receive notifications to a thread being updated.

I am only subscribed to one thread but am not deceiving notifications despite having the relevant box ticked on the thread footer.

I cannot see my email address in the user control panel to confirm that it is configured properly.

Can someone post the steps please?

When you reply to a thread there is an option box that you need to tick to receive notifications, its just below the attach signature under options.
