Pro Tip 1.
IF a watched thread has been set to trigger email notifications - and you no longer desire this - first 'Unwatch' the thread in question and then re-watch the thread choosing 'Alert' notifications only (assuming you still wish to watch the thread).

Pro Tip 2.
Choosing to 'Watch' an entire Forum *and* selecting to receive email notifications *will* result in a lot of emails you probably do not want!!


Help - my alerts and/or email notifications have stopped
Once an alert is triggered, if you do not visit the thread in question, no more alerts will be sent. New alerts and emails are only triggered once you have visited a watched thread (or watched forum) and are 'up to date'.
