Ok, I now notice there is a check box in the reply box labeled "receive email notifications".
Why is that there if I already check those entries I posted the screen shot of?? :idunno

The forum uses three similar terms "alerts", "watches" and "notifications" which can and should mean the same thing but apparently doesn't.

Do I have to check notifications every time I post a reply even thou I checked alerts?? I have been to dozens of forums and I don't ever remember having to do something similar in the past 19 or so years. o_O

Should I use the "printerknowledge.com" as the domain for the e-mails?
yes, and the email they come from is support@

Where is this exactly?

I can understand the confusion. In general you can "watch" a thread or forum and either get "alerts" (which are here on-site) and also opt to get email "notifications".

Do I have to check notifications every time I post a reply even thou I checked alerts??
No. You can change your default settings to auto-subscirbe (with alerts and emails if you want) to anything you reply to.

Ok, I found it. The indented check box wasn't checked. One would figure all methods of 'notifications' (alerts or otherwise) would be on the same page.

The "receive email notifications" I was describing is under the (more options) reply box. Just checking those 'Alert" choices does nothing.

Yeah, I agree regarding terminology and location. Hopefully in the future version of the forum software they will address that.

Glad you found the fix!
