    I have in my settings selected to recieve "instant email notification". I assume this to mean that I should be recieveing an email every time someone replies to one of my threads or any thread I have replied to. This works sometimes, other times not. Usually for the threads I'm really interested in, it doesn't work.

    Click on the "QUICK LINKS" main menu item choice and then scroll down to the "SUBSCRIBED THREADS" feature. Click on the "SUBSCRIBED THREADS" feature and you will see a list of all of your subscription. The word "INSTANT" will appear beside those subscriptions that are marked to send you instant email notification.

    right, I see there that they are all marked "instant". I have not recieved email notification for all of them though. For instance, I recieved notification for your reply to this post.
    for the following post, I chimed in @ post #29 & recieved notifications for posts #30,31, (32 was me), 33, (34 was me), 35, & 45. I did not recieve notification for post #36-#43.

    I'm still experiencing this. Anyone else experiencing this? I did not recieve any notifications at all for my latest post. I verified I am subscribed to it, verified my settings that I am supposed to recieve instant notification for every reply, checked my spam folder, nothing; definately not recieving all the notifications that I am supposed to.

    Have you confirmed that there is no typo in your email address that you provided AAC?

    Yes, and I do receive some email alerts, just not all of them. It's hit or miss. For example in 1 thread with 40 replies I could receive 25 notifications. or I could receive 40. Depends on ???? Usually I do receive all of them, but then every once in a while I don't. it's weird.

    Well, I haven't had this issue come back for one month. Was something changed?
