E-Mail Notification is working

While we were on SourceForge's servers, the SourceForge site policies prevented outbound e-mail. The new host UK2 Hosting has provided us with both sendmail and SMTP services.
Both Topic/Board Notification and PM Notification are enabled and working on our current server.

It's one of the benefits of membership. Board/Topic notification is enabled in User Control Panel > Profile > Options
Post and Board Notifications:       If you check this, you will see an additional Popup alert when you visit the Board Index if you have New Board or Post Notifications.

Notify me of new Notifications by eMail? [dropdown menu] Yes



PM Notifications are also set in User Control Panel > Profile> PM Preferences:
Notify me of new PMs by eMail:[dropdown menu] Yes

By way of discussion - the PM notification allows you to turn off the PopUp window, the Board/Topic notification does not.  I feel the Board/Topic notifications should work the same way.  Its a real problem, as it can interrupt you while trying to read a topic. (I have not tested 'Reply' mode.

Good Luck to all
Cool
  

I find your lack of faith disturbing.
