    When I have "notify me via email" turned on by default, and for every thread i post to, i get about 1/20th of the emails i should be getting. Now i have to check all the threads i post in for replies. Is anyone else getting this problem?

    Now that you mention it.. I have the service turned on but I haven't gotten any notices in the past week or so. Strange.

    I think it's just the forum server coughing up, being that we've had quite a bit of traffic lately.

    I turned the notifications off. They send you a copy of the post that launched it, even if the poster is on your ignore list. If I don't want to see what the monkeys post here, why would I want it in my inbox?

    I'm not having that problem at all right now. Tons of e-mails for every thread in my inbox:)

    However, I have had it in the past...

    Never used e-mail notification for threads, but I do remember getting notifications only one or two days after receiving PMs.
