To get an email notification when there is a new message in a forum you must:
1 - be logged in on the web site.
2 - go to each forum you are interested in
3 - On the forum front page (where it lists the messages in that forum) there is a tick box labelled "Email me when XXX forum has a new thread.". Tick that box in each forum where you would like a notification.
Q - I can't find the tick box.
A - Scroll down. It's near the bottom of the page on the right.
Q - I'm looking in the right place - it's really not there.
A - Are you logged in to the web site? If you are not logged in the system has no idea who it should send email to and does not display the tick box.
Q - I checked the box a while ago. I can see new messages since I ticked the box, I didn't get email.
A - Have you changed your email address since you registered on the web site? To update your personal details click on your display name (In the top right hand corner after you login). It's also possible that the email is still on its way to your inbox. If your email system does junk mail filtering then you should check that the email from the web site didn't get sent there by mistake. It's also possible, but quite rare, for emails to get lost, email is not a guaranteed delivery system. If you are sure that you are not getting *any* emails then ask me.
Q - I am getting emails from the site. Why do they come from dynamisys.co.uk?
A - Because before the site can send email as wva.org my ISP needs to believe that I am not sending bucket loads of spam. This is a process that requires finding, moving and posting bits of paper. It is under way.
