    Using Email Notification to read your responses.

    Everytime you post a comment, you have a choice in your Message Box to turn on or off email notification whenever someone responds to the topic you commented in.

    When you receive the email notifcation, just click on the link in the email and it will take you to the topic.

    The email notification also has an option to cancel any further notifications for the single topic you subscribed to, or to cancel to ALL notifications from ALL topics you participated in. Read the email carefully before deciding.

    However, if you click on the topic link that was emailed to you and you find it is a dead link, then it was probaby moved, merged, or archived. In these cases, simply go to the SEARCH button at the top of any page and type in your assigned User Name to locate every topic where your User Name appears, which will include the potential topics that were either moved or merged. If no luck, then the topic may have been archived because of a members infraction of the Forum Rules.

    ANOTHER OPTION:
    Or, whenever you return the forums after an absence at http://www.ipiu.org/forums/ , the very first thing you should do is look at the top of the main menu of all forums at http://www.ipiu.org/forums/ , and to the right top you should see your User Name and a "Welcome back" title. Below the "Welcome Back" is the button link of View Active Topics . Once you click on that, it brings up all the comments you missed since your last forum visit.

    Great advice Julia, everyone doesn't always remember the options. A reminder is welcome advice.

    Enjoy the view in here because it leads to a vast world out there. Remember, there is no great "I" without "You", but together there is nothing "We" can't do! God bless you in all of your endeavors.

    Thanks. Your information was quite useful. As I steer my way through the forums, I cant help but notice that there are a lot of people out there who are just about as confused using the forums as I am.
    I have been on vacation, then got a virus in my computer that about made me pull my hair out! and have recently re-joined actively participating... hopefuylly this gets easier.

    Thumbs up

    Julia:

    I love the new feature, email notification; being able to read the comments via my email without actually having to login to the IPIU site is such a time saver for me.

    It's good that I can read the comments/posts that I am subscribed to without having to login to the site. I truly appreciate this feature.

    Ah, I am so glad that I came upon this thread. It was getting a little annoying to receive constant updates on new forum users agreeing to the code of ethics.

    The more I surf, the more I learn. Hopefully, level 4 and up will be even more useful.

    Thanks folks at IPIU for trying to make this a little easier.... I use computers every day of my life, extensively at times, and am glad to hear your news....

    Post Very handy

    Reading from E-Mail Notifications come in very helpful, especially if you are not at your primary PC. It also allows you to go directly to the topic reply without having to navigate through the forums.

    I have been using the email feature, I think it is great. I need to do more of navigating the forums without email so I can understand them better. Thanks.

    Julia Ann,
    I use the email feature all the time, I love it. However, I just used the Search button for the first time. It only shows my introdution lounge forum post, and my test my writing skills posts. I have done posts in at least two - three other different forums. What's up with this. Why don't they show? I'm confused.

    I hope I'm ok to ask this in this forum. One of my other posts I believe was moved. maybe I was too detailed or something, Not sure why, Have yet to find it. or receive an email about it.

    Detailed question on email notification checkboxes if anyone could help. When I look at the threads I am subscribed to the boxes far to the right indicating "notification" the checkboxes are not marked; however my profile indicates I have a default of instant email notification. Do I have to have checks in the boxes to the right of the thread list? Just want to make sure I am getting my email notifications instantly. Haven't received much lately, which could be due to non-response.

    Please advise. Thanks, Lori Mantyla

    email notification problem

    Dear Kathy,

    I did receive a communication on Sat. that due to an upgrade, there were some glitches regarding people not receiving instant notifications on subscribed threads. I seem to be receiving most of mine now, with the exception of the introductory lounge. Are you receiving all your notifications as well?

    Talking Great Follow-up Technique.

    I just wanted to note that I think the email follow-up system is great for important posts you are awaiting answers to. It seems much better than trying to find your way back into a particular forum each time. Thanks to the designer

    Yes, Brandi. I totally agree with you. It is wonderful!

    Thanks to all for the information. I think it is great to receive responses via e-mail rather than having to go to the IPIU website.

    Thanks again.
