How do email notifications work?

Email notifications let people stay up to date on message threads via email. Anyone who posts a new message or comments on a message will automatically be “subscribed” to that message. When you are subscribed to the message, you’ll get an email notification each time someone else posts a new comment on that message.

It’s easy to notify people about one of your messages. When you post a message you’ll see a section that says, “Notify people of this message via email.” Select whomever you want to be notified. Selected people will receive a copy of the message via email and will also receive any comments posted to that message via email too (they can unsubscribe at any time).

Subscriptions are established on a message-by-message basis (there’s no “always notify me” option). This keeps you from being inundated with messages you aren’t interested in.

People who aren’t part of a thread can also subscribe to a message by clicking on the message and then selecting “Yes, email me” in the right sidebar.
